Black berets, biker jackets, broad-shouldered blouses and le body: autumn/winter is all about the '80s at Louis Vuitton, where designer Marc Jacobs juxtaposed the soft and the sharp, the oversized and the slim, the shiny and the matte. His inspiration? Alaia, Mugler, Montana and Les Rita Mitsouko, as seen on the pages of avant-garde French fashion magazine Jill circa 1986. So chic.
