A little fashion 411 for you all: Marc Jacobs, who was appointed creative director at Louis Vuitton in 1997, was recently given the opportunity to take over the coveted position that was once held by John Galliano at Dior. Choosing between Vuitton and Dior is like choosing between cupcakes and brownies. As one could imagine, Marc Jacobs is an amazing candidate since he’s a fashion genius, but turns out he turned down the offer and decided to sustain his time with Vuitton. His reasoning?

 “I am at Vuitton, and I am very happy there. I’ve been saying that for a long time. There have been on-and-off conversations about Dior. I don’t know; maybe someday in the future, maybe years from now, I may end up going someplace else, maybe Dior. But right now I am at Vuitton, and all that matters to me is that that’s where I am and I’m going to keep doing my thing.”

Not to mention that Mr. Jacobs is not as much of a fan of couture as you would predict. He basically explains that he respects what it is but feels that the creativity that you derive from making couture pieces can be found in ready-to-wear and when it comes down to it, couture designing is not as opportunistic as ready-to-wear because of the fact that there is not an ample demand for couture, couture is limited in the sense that it lacks an array of all different looks and pieces, and “there’s no advertising” with couture. His argument is a good one but the world of fashion does rely on the high-fashion creations of designers and the custom-made pieces that make you drool and pave the way for many ready-to-wear pieces.

All of the fall 2011 looks are upon us and I have to say, it makes it really difficult to have a grasp on reality; let’s put it this way, summer is barely among us and who isn’t ready to just indulge in the sun, sand, and heat for the next few months, right? But, as much as I don’t want to rush summer away, seeing these sneak peak looks is making me anxious for fall and all of its coziness and couture. It looks like a lot of heather gray and sheen, dusty silvers along with plum and other, more subtle shades of violet will be popular. Which era of time does this reflect for you guys? The 1930s perhaps? Either way, Vuitton has done it again.
