Marc Jacobs keeps a retro mood for Louis Vuitton’s pre-fall collection, inspired by a book about wartime fashions. Playing with a muted palette with shots of orange and fuchsia, he offers felt skirts paired with blouses and cardigans, platforms and socks, and a little black crepe dress with sculpted radzimir sleeves and lace panels. Costume jewelry also underscores the Forties feel, with a lily-of-the-valley brooch and a wooden chain necklace.
