Edie Campbell

Louis Vuitton

Designers have been working with layers of different materials and textures, slipping fabulously detailed top pieces over simpler foundations.

Here, a razzle-dazzle, jet-embroidered halter draped over a sheer black under layer creates a look that’s extremely rich – by Louis Vuitton.

The lavish volume of long skirts big enough to swing as you walk imparts a sensation of grandeur to your step.

Desire for Logos | News

Recognisable status pieces are back, and with them a desire for logos. We no longer wish for rebellious individualism, instead preferring to show off our inclusion in fashion communities.

Across the spring/summer ’14 catwalks, the logo was abundant. Marc Jacobs’s startlingly beautiful swan song at Louis Vuitton had Edie Campbell naked but for hand-painted Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse graffiti covering her lithe body. Similarly for Carol Lim and Humberto Leon at Kenzo, Missoni, Alexander Wang, and DKNY.

Logos offer free marketing and add value to products. You may not be able to afford the $4,000 Saint Laurent biker jacket, but you can have Hedi Slimane’s $200 Saint Laurent T-shirt which has been redesigned by the artist Zane Reynolds for spring.
