Citing the Disney World ride as inspiration, “It’s a small world” is how studio style director Julie de Libran, responsible for Louis Vuitton’s pre-fall collection, described her lineup. She looked to those worldly childlike dolls to emphasize the Vuitton heritage as a globe-trotting brand — the canvas for her focus on the house’s iconic pieces. She reworked a classic biker jacket in a creamy double-face leather and felt, and used the famed “Sprouse” leopard print on a gray flannel suit and as a luxe lining for other pieces. Playful military touches gave the lineup a charming allure, i.e., a trompe l’oeil print of a soldier’s uniform, a motif that could have been plucked straight from the toy box. Fur arrived via graphic accents: big fox patch pockets, on shoes and in contrasting colors on a long vest. The collars, another Vuitton fixation, were removable and done in fur and metallic silver, meant to be worn as jewelry. Speaking of, a new high jewelry collaboration with Lorenz Baumer featured chunky white gold chain bracelets with monogram flower charms.
