Leaving the signature monogram canvas behind, Louis Vuitton handbags flooded the Paris Fashion Week AW13 runway yesterday with flirty hues and playful textures.
While Marc Jacobs' collection was largely inspired by the delicately sexy 'fallen angel' look made somewhat famous/notorious by Kate Moss, the handbags hit a similarly glamorous note with exotic skins and intricately structured detailing.
Waxed crocodile and python leathers met hand-curled marabou and goose feathers, while fluffy mink pushed the use of fur across the runways onto an awkwardly upward trajectory.
So what do you think of next season's designs?
