Marc Jacobs Gives Us The Aftermath of French Colonialism at Louis Vuitton

Marc Jacobs may love his adopted hometown of Paris but the French have more than a few adopted influences thanks to their colonial past and Jacobs made good use of said influences for a very global Spring 2009 Louis Vuitton collection. The collection had a strong Asian influence with more than a little African making it a veritable post colonial melangé of la vie Francophone.

A golden bamboo backdrop, feathers, bangles, big necklaces, astounding earrings, warrior sandals and plenty of detailing made for a collection that gave us more, more and more. That said, there were plenty of well merchandised wearable basics for an astute fashion consumer. It is yet another collection of both editorial perspective and commercial appeal for Marc Jacobs. It plays well on the cross cultural reach of Louis Vuitton's history as a travel oriented brand while playing to Marc Jacob's strengths as a master of the mix and match.
