Paris – The 60s revival continues at the spring/summer 2013 round of fashion shows, this time zeroing in on mod culture.
Marc Jacobs unveiled Louis Vuitton’s spring/summer 2013 show in Paris this week, incorporating a string of graphic looks, including chequerboard print minis and crop tops, mini-shift dresses and swing coats. The look was highlighted with 60s beauty, including teased chignons and heavy cat eyeliner.
The Paris Fashion Week show focused on twin graphic colour pairings, including yellow and grey, black and white, and grey and cream motifs. The twin concept was reinforced as models walked the runway in pairs wearing coordinating outfits.
Jacobs is the latest designer to reference mod culture this season. Michael Kors and Rue du Mail have also taken inspiration from it. Jacobs also referenced the aesthetic in the spring/summer 2013 collection for his eponymous line, shown in New York last month. Look out for more LS:N Global coverage of spring/summer 2013 trends.
