Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 RTW

Louis Vuit­ton Fall 2009 RTW

Pretty pink paper-chains on the Louis Vuit­ton run­way last week in Paris. Mais, c’est un papier lune, Mon­sieur Jacobs…oui? Paper — pli­able, light, communicative…what else do you know that has such sim­i­lar char­ac­ter­is­tics? Jew­elry that looks like it came from the stuff of trees, or even recy­cled news­pa­pers; the con­cept has inspired stu­dio artists. There is an exhi­bi­tion ongo­ing at Aaron Faber Gallery that must be seen, if not only for rea­sons fash­ion­able. Appar­ently, the idea will hold court at least until this Fall.
