Au revoir, Paris! Paris Fashion Week came to a close yesterday with some truly epic collections, namely Marc Jacobs’ swan song at Louis Vuitton, an all-black extravaganza combining lace embroideries, washed denim, and Edie Campbell strutting around the runway nude save for some artfully placed Stephen Sprouse graffiti and handcuffs. (It was a capital L “Look.”)Aside from Jacobs’ gothic carnival, Paris had a lot to offer by way of inspiration. We’re thinking of Chanel’s rainbow artists, Saint Laurent’s rock icons, Kenzo’s swim fans, and Viktor & Rolf’s topsy-turvy school girls. Instead of waiting until April to get in on these trends, however, we’re getting into a spring state of mind now with the best movies, songs, beauty products, and fashion items inspired by the Paris shows. So grab your bestie and blast Pink Floyd, turn on Finding Nemo, glitter your nails, and get ready to do some serious online shopping. C’est la vie!
“A goth girl goes to Carnivale” should be the name of Marc Jacobs’ final Louis Vuitton collection. Aside from all the moody black, have you guys seen the jeans!? -- STEFF YOTKA
Whether you’re spirit rock goddess is Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, Joan Jett, or Chrissie Hynde, you’ll find a little inspiration in Hedi Slimane’s spring ’14 collection. Prepare to rock out. -- REBECCA WILLA DAVIS
