Louis Vuitton scarves

When you combine the legendary glamour of Louis Vuitton with the collage and illustrating talent of artist François Cadière, the result is unconventional fashion with a surrealist twist. The latest collection is an adventure set in Berlin, with French photographer François adding his magic touch to the new Louis Vuitton Eden silk scarf. Berlin makes the perfect setting for this project with its expressive street art which is echoed in the various textile designs of the season. The collection includes a dazzling selection of scarves, stoles and shawls that can be worn in new inspired ways. And just for the fashion followers, Marc Jacobs has added two new innovations to reinvent the classic Louis Vuitton scarf. There’s a detachable bow, in a pattern matching that on the scarf, as well as two pompoms for an unprecedented exotic look. Of course you’ll still find the classic Louis Vuitton symbols printed onto the fabrics: the hearts, leopard, monogram flowers, geometric lines and the map print. You’ll also recognize a strong influence from the Summer 2011 Louis Vuitton show in the shawls, in the form of zebra print combined with pops of bright colour. The stoles are available in lovely winter shades such as navy blue and red, feminine camel and pink, and unusual fuchsia with a splash of khaki. We can always rely on this leading fashion house to pave the way in reinventing a look in simple yet elegant ways. Now, just to get our hands on the entire collection... Text: Kim Grové
