Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012
>> Classic '60s couture silhouettes, military details, and a rich compilation of fabrics defined Julie de Libran's Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall offering. "It's good to have all the beauty," de Libran — who helms the house's Pre-Fall and Resort collections— said of the collection's more extravagant details, "but you have to be able to wear the clothes. After all, that's what we're all here for, no?" And so, among all the fur and sequins, de Libran offered plenty that was wearable: a streamlined shorts suit, motorcycle jackets in wool and leather, round-shouldered coats, and several sweet little frocks.
