Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 Collection: "I Die!!!"



I know my choice of titles is quite indulgent, but it pretty much sums up how I feel about Louis Vuitton's fall 2010 collection. In the immortal words of nutty stylist to the stars, Rachel Zoe, "I DIE!!!". I'm about to type words I never in a million, gazillion years thought would pour out through my fingers. GULP! Here it goes...

The best collection of the fall 2010 season belongs to Louis Vuitton.

Holy smokes! I still can't believe I actually said that, but it's absolutely 100% true. Marc Jacobs gave us the best collection out of New York, and now he delivers the best collection out of Paris (except McQueen's posthumus showing which is in a class all by itself - more on that collection tomorrow). Oh, Marc. You never cease to surprise us with your almost maniacal sense of design. Last season you forced us to endure silly fox tail-accented backpacks with tassels and phone cords as embellishments, and now you give us this - beautiful, vintage-inspired bags that make my heart ache with happiness.


I just want to mention how wonderfully tailored and flattering this collection is for women of my size. I could see myself wearing every piece in this collection. The a-line leather skirts are simply divine. Every dress, every coat, every article of clothing and accessory from this collection is retro-chic. It bears repeating this, folks - "I DIE".

I'm tempted to gush over this amazing display of bags, but I feel the images speak for themselves. Doctor satchels, flap bags with vintage-looking push-lock closures, even bags clad in LV's ubiquitous monogram pattern are exquisite. The restraint, the sheer brilliance of this collection reminds me, once again, why Marc Jacobs is one of the greatest designers of our time. I'll stop now, and let all of you bask in the glory of Louis Vuitton's fall 2010 bag collection. I'll just continue to "die" on my side of the computer.

    omg, I'm going to faint. First, that you gave LVMH a good review (lol) and that these are really good! Never thought I'd see new LV bags worth coveting! Wonders never cease!

    Ditto Mary Jo. This is the first time in a long time I have given an LV bag a second glance. Dania, I hope you are OK now :)

    P.S. Dania, you know how schizophrenic I am about handbags. Well, you will be pleased to know I am crushing hard on that blue python Chloe paraty. Didn't I say I wasn't crazy about the paraty????? Wrong! That python makes it a different bag in my book. I will let you know if I take the plunge, but if I do, I am on handbag ban for a long, long time. Will be working lots of overtime...

    Mary Jo, I thought of you the entire time I was writing this review. We decided you'd leave LV to me because I love a good thrashing, and I ended up eating crow. I can't decide which bag I love the most. I was literally on handbag overload last night. It's total insanity.

    Gail, I'm fine now, but the shock will take some time to wear off I'm afraid.

    So I got you hooked on the python Paraty! I just love that bag. When I see it IRL, I can't take my eyes off of it. If I may give you my two cents, this bag is worth a lengthy bag ban. No doubt about, but I'll quit my enabling comments now. I don't envy your inner turmoil one bit (unless you actually get the bag, then I'll be pea-green with envy!).

    I'm impressed! The clothes are very 60's chic and figure flattering. The monogram lace overlay on those two top-handles is unexpected. Of course the alligator bags are to die for. Even the simple doctor bags with the jumbo embossed logo work for me!

    I was wondering what you would think of these bags, Michael. They're definitely drool-worthy. And the clothes... So flattering.
