Louis Vuitton Gives Classics the Grunge at Paris Fashion Week

French fashion house Louis Vuitton revisited the yester years on the last day of Paris Fashion Week with its RTW collection, March 6. The collection featured grungy looks created from the brand's classic designs.

Louis Vuitton's creative director Marc Jacobs sent models down the runway dressed in chic attires that included dresses, pants and skirts but all these were pretty much overshadowed by the stunning trench coats worn over them.

"I don't want to use certain words, but there's a kind of decadent, eccentric, grungy glamour going on here," Jacobs described his designs to WWD.

The collection featured some of the most elegant looks like the heavy robes in floral designs clinched at the waist with slim belts, a dark blazer with a slim black belt, velvet dresses and furry coats.

One of the pieces we loved was the navy blue trench coat worn over a lacey skirt and a bra top. The coat had clean cuts and the dark color added to its elegance. Another model stepped on the runway wearing the same coat in a different color.

Jacobs also showcased some very formal looks in dark hues of black, brown and dark green. The collection included formal A-line skirts paired with fitted blazers that were clinched at the waist. To add extra zing to the outfit, the edges of the blazer were lined with golden and black sequins. The collection featured numerous other blazers and over coats that came with similar sequin designs.

Most of the formal dresses were designed in such a way that they could not only be worn to work but could also double up as evening wear. Few such pieces worth mentioning are the black A-line skirt paired with a glittery v-neck top in the same color and another piece that boasted of a stunning over coat with fur lined cuffs worn with a black sweater and clinched at the waist with a slim black belt.

The collection also included casual looks like black pants with floral design paired with a casual mauve V-neck sweater that not only looked comfortable but also was elegant and chic.

Louis Vuitton's ready to wear collection also included some sheer floor length dresses paired with bulky coats.
