more about a statement of pure luxe

in many modes of dress,

Backstage, Marc Jacobs explained:
‘It’s 50 different women, real and imaginary. 
It’s my friends and my fantasies. 
She can look pulled together or thrown together. 
She’s Left Bank. She’s Hollywood. 
A bit Gloria Swanson. A bit Juliet Greco. 
She’s romantic, erotic, decadent, glamorous and she loves luxury. 
The type of woman who expresses herself as an individual.’

For Louis Vuitton handbag enthusiasts
the Pochette Accessoire, the Speedy and the Lockit
received fabulous new treatments,
in marabou, goose feather and waxed crocodile,
with handles hand carved from antique wood, 
horn or precious stones.
