Paris Shoe of the Day: Louis Vuitton

Paris Shoe of the Day: Louis
Louis Vuitton RTW fall 2012

At Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs’ approach to fall was an effort to one-up last season’s spectacular carousel-themed runway show. And take it up a notch he did, emphasizing layered looks and sky-high platforms. With models descending off a real steam-producing Louis Vuitton locomotive and porters toting multiple handbags for each lady, the event had showmanship in spades. Embellishments were also key. From oversized brooches to feathers and fur, the details were luxurious and piled on thick. Metallic cap toes and jeweled buttons detailed the square-toed booties and Mary Janes, while ostrich and crocodile were paired with multicolored leathers for a luxe feel. But while the silhouettes were vintage-inspired, the heel heights and material mixes made them anything but. On the last day of the official fashion season, this navy crocodile and rose-gold metallic platform Mary Jane leaves us anxiously awaiting fall.
