The Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 RTW Collection displayed a dark fashion circus for all spectators at Paris Fashion Week with extreme, electrifying couture style. Boasting a Gothic-like show that one would expect from Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs took his creativity to new heights with the collection. Each model wore a dramatic, feathered headdress, which implied she was the queen of every showgirl in the world to onlookers as she gloried in the magnificent grandeur of her entrance on the runway. Marc Jacobs drew inspiration for the clothing line from stars known for creating a spectacle for all to see, such as Lady Gaga and Madonna.
Though Jacobs proclaims this was not his farewell show, the energy and shock value of it indicated that he was going, he wanted to go out with a bang. Jacobs gave us an interesting twist on how to design and wear jeans. The exploratory line between a pants suit and a gown is intriguing to say the least. I mean who would have thought of pairing tulle and jeans together. The showmanship did not just stop with the collection, the artistry also showed in the runway setup. The fabulous fountain background gave the show a cirque effect. From motorcycle jackets to tuxedo trousers, the collection was an electric mix of modern and Victorian influences. The incredible mink dresses and embroidery stood out, in spite of the larger than life headdresses, as the pieces that stole the show. The Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 RTW Collection is not for the faint of heart, but for a woman emboldened by vivacious fashion.
