If you ask any girl, she'll likely tell you she had an Edie Sedgwick moment at some point in her life. It was the short bob, shift dresses, and cat eyes that got us. And if you loved those details, as well, you'll adore the first Vuitton look that came down the runway — headband, bob, smoky eyes, and fabulously mod, checked jacket-and-skirt pairing.
Taking what he'd started at Marc Jacobs and running with it, Jacobs continued his '60s obsession with three basic motifs: a color palette of greens, yellows, whites, and blacks; checks and their monochrome complement; jacket-and-skirt or pantsuit sets.
If it seems repetitive, it was — but only in the most genius way possible. Like minimalist music, which the entire show was set to, the seemingly simple looks culminated in something grand — each look was a tiny additive cell in Jacobs' consonant harmony. That, and the shifting, shimmering mirrored panels that rotated throughout, hypnotizing as it also mesmerized. The final walk-through had the models appearing from a long escalator, as if they had descended upon us from somewhere up high. It was fashion heaven.
