#--6 Louis Vuitton Fall Winter 2012/2013 | Paris Fashion Week

Leave it to Marc Jacobs to absolutely blow us away. First of all, the train pulling into the station was epic. With the smoke machine and the realistic sound effects, it gave the audience the sensation of actually being in the train station. As the train come to a halt, music begins and a man (conductor maybe) steps out to help the first model down. She comes out with stunning camel coat with breath taking oversized jeweled brooch buttons and an oversized 20's/30's style hat. It wasn't until about the third model that I realized the shorter men following each model, carrying her "luggage" was actually holding the new bag line which was equally exquisite.

This show is very much worth seeing at least once.

Bravo Marc! You're the best thing that ever happened to Louis Vuitton.

#5--Shades of Nude

As per my previous entry regarding color, I believe pastels are going to remain in fashion. It seems that 2012 so far has been the year of COLOR! Neons and brights have truly exploded and even the 'pastels' of the season have had a vibrant and bright hue to them.

With that being said, I believe Spring 2013 will yes hold color, but a very muted and almost transparent hue to them. Below find a color pallet that is so similar it is almost bland, but when these colors are mixed in matched in the fashions shown below, the colors seem to work so well together and really begin to POP! The mix of the crisp whites, camels, taupes, blushes and corals and a hint of mint and sky blue, are so cohesively beautiful.
