Louis Vuitton Looked to Anna Piaggi for Its Last Collection

By

Love editor-in-chief and stylist Katie Grand told Grazia, "There was one specific image of Anna from the book Checkered Past that Marc [Jacobs] and I referred to," speaking of Peter Schlesinger's visual diary of London from the sixties and seventies. On the cover, Anna wears a slouchy purple hat with a gold veil, similar to the headpieces shown on Vuitton's fall 2012 runway. Grazia adds, "Piaggi's flamboyant flounces also inspired the collection's bejewelled tweed coats, eye-catching prints and sumptuous patchwork dresses."
