Did Anybody Else Think Louis Vuitton Was Boring and Matronly?

Usually Marc Jacobs does some really exciting stuff and I find myself thrilled to see just what he’ll do next. Oh but not this time, Marc! The show was discombobulated and all over the place. It reached for a 1960s vibe a la Mad Men, but if you ask me, Prada did it better…
There were a few things I totally dug from the collection – like the clean, fresh faces, almost “no make up.” And I dig that black and white old-school television static coat, and some of the handbags were really interesting.
And I love this look, the gloves, the skirt, everything. It feels like what a 1960s high society gal would wear right now.
But I just didn’t “get” the rest of the collection. Like…what the hell is going on with that pastel floral dress? I hate the print…actually, I hate everything about this look. It’s supposed to be 1960s, Mad Men. I get it. But overall the collection was inconsistent – some pieces were great and some were just kinda eeh.
The good news, though, is that Vuitton used different types of models, such as “curvy” and “older” models like Alessandra Ambrosio and Elle Macpherson, so like that part’s cool or whatever.
