A Closer Look: Louis Vuitton – Spring/Summer 2013

I am in the midst of press day season at the moment, and one of my early highlights so far has to be checking out the Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2013 collection in their London showroom. I always love seeing catwalk collections up-close, especially when they are such a big accessories brand like Louis Vuitton as walking through the collection I got to mentally pick out all the handbags I would love to add to my collection.

It seems that spring/summer 2013 is going to be all about the tiny handbag, a step towards elegance and a nod to the retro, which I love, but I am also scared as it means I have to give up on my divine oversized handbags that seem to be able to hold everything.

The Louis Vuitton ready-to-wear explores symmetry and mirrors and has a touch of the 60s about it, I love the chess-board effect, whether it was in black or the custard yellow mixed with white, the clothes really stand out.

I left the press day with an enormous mental wish-list – from the oversized sunglasses to the orange envelope handbag to the super cute sequinned flamingo t-shirt, oh and a Louis Vuitton scarf, or two!!!
