While I think that most of Louis Vuitton‘s runway collections wouldn’t really work off the runway, I do admire Marc Jacobs for his vision and ability to inspire the fashion world. Take the S/S 2012 collection for instance. LV brought out pastels for spring and swooooooooosh, a few months later everyone was doing pastels; including other high-end designers. For Spring 2013 MJ envisioned a collection full of chess print adorned pieces and now we’re starting to see the LV inspired check print trend trickling down to the fast fashion retailers such as ASOS. What would you rather wear? Louis Vuitton or ASOS?
