It was a sojourn through Williamsburg under Marc Jacobs’ roof this morning. Fox’s better thirds dangled from street inspired leather bags screaming for a show independent from the Louis Vuitton collection. PETA would have had a fit. We didn’t know what to concentrate on whether it be the cotton ball afros, the bags or the uncharacteristic Louis Vuitton collection — lace leggings juxtaposed by hazy hued mini dresses; garbage bag inspirations translated into glazed plastic skirts coupled with hosiery silk tube shirts; denim blouse-cum-dresses accented by frills. To sum up the collection, ghetto-fab met high brow. If the LV monograms were absent I might not have recognized a complete turn from its high brow roots to this lowbrow-esque collection. It’s apparent that in a race to indie designs among the top fashion houses, Armani and Gucci are lagging far far far behind.
