India Comes To Louis Vuitton

Nov 4, 2010

I don't know if many of you have heard of Diwali, but it is an Indian festival of lights, of happiness, and prosperity. It is the Indian New Year, and this year, not only is India celebrating, but Louis Vuitton is, too. 

Marc Jacobs designed an exclusive collection for Diwali, taking traditional Indian fabrics from Saris, (one of India's oldest, and most worn outfits), and turning them into modern, trademark Louis Vuitton pieces. The designer told Vogue India, "Saris, to me, are beautiful." Taking those Saris straight from India, Jacobs' team then used them to create gorgeous Louis Vuitton dresses and other creations. The Louis Vuitton store windows across Paris, New York, Tokyo, and other fashion capitals will be decorated to pay tribute to the Hindu festival. In addition, Mr. Jacobs told the Vogue India, "From what I understand, Diwali is about happiness, joy, and light. So my message is-bring light into your life!" With Louis Vuitton's Diwali collection, how could my life not be filled with light?

Happy Diwali!

  4. I love Diwali! Prior to living in Montreal, I lived in Vancouver with a very large Indo-Canadian population. I love the colours and textures of sari's the women would wear. I always wanted one! It is such a vibrant rich culture is was a matter of time before the Couture Houses used the sari for the inspiration of their collections. And back to Diwali, mmmmmmm the sweets. The best part!

    lovely and pretty blog:)

    I will visit often, I hope you keep visiting/following mine too:)
