Yesterday was the day of Louis Vuitton. In the morning Marc Jacobs failed to disappoint with his fall 2012 collection at the brand but last night was all about their much anticipated exhibition, which helped close Paris Fashion Week.
Two floors of the Louvre were taken over as guests including Sarah Jessica Parker (who flew in especially for both events) and fashion folk like Miuccia Prada and Anna Dello Russo explored the event dedicated both to the history of Vuitton and Jacobs' work at the house. While the first floor was dedicated to the classic trunks and heritage, the second floor featured Jacobs' partnerships with artists like Takashi Murakami alongside several of his big campaigns and memorable collections.
Catherine Deneuve has recently endorsed a line of handbags produced by female prisoners in Lebanon. The bags, which feature Arabic phrases such as "Where Is My Heart?", also benefit those who make them. This seems more than fitting for Deneuve, who features in the docu-film Je Veux Voir, all about the 2006 war between Israel and Lebanon.
Morley Safer, aka the silver-haired correspondent for US news programme 60 Minutes, caused a stir today at Balenciaga by keeping Salma Hayek and Catherine Deneuve from their seats.
On the Runway reports that while he was questioning Anna Wintour for an upcoming profile, several very fashionable guests were forced to stay out of the way. He's already tagged along to shows like Ralph Lauren and Dolce & Gabbana, so what's next? Chaos at Chanel?
