The American designer, Marc Jacobs, brought the golden era of the 1980s/90s New Age traveller back to fashion’s forefront in his spring/summer 2010 collection for Louis Vuitton, at the Paris prêt-a-porter season yesterday.
“Street clothes, embracing the hippie-cyber, tribal-punk world,” he said, after a parade of 55 models, wearing giant, multicoloured, Afro wigs, and clad in everything from glitter-anoraks, fringed shirts and satin corsets to jewel-encrusted, denim hot-pants over lace-up leggings.
Talk about some nappy-headed hos! I always loved those afro styles. This should be good for the makers of the permanent wave.
