Lucky's Editors Pick Their Favorite Louis Vuitton Shows From Marc Jacobs' Tenure

Spring 2012

"Horses and Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette are two of my absolute favorite things in the world—and both of them came together (well, kind of) at this show. Models rode in on a white-painted merry-go-round and wore the most beautiful macaron-colored lace dresses I'd ever laid eyes on, many accented with feathers and floral embroidery . The clothes looked almost too delicious to wear—but if I were lucky enough to acquire a piece for myself, I'm sure I'd manage." - Elana Fishman, senior digital editor



Yesterday, Marc Jacobs took his final bow as creative director at Louis Vuitton, the brand he's helped shape for the past 16 years. Over the course of Jacobs' incredible tenure, during which he collaborated with the likes of Stephen Sprouse, Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami and Sofia Coppola on more iconic accessories than we can count, the heritage label grew to become one of the most valuable luxury brands in the world. More than that, however, Marc Jacobs was an incredible showman whose runway shows for Vuitton were always the most memorable of fashion month. Whether he was recruiting Kate Moss to ride a carousel or sending models onto the catwalk in a fully-operational train (!), his seasonal presentations were about more than just revealing fresh collections—they were reminders that fashion is meant to be magical, plain and simple.

We asked some of Lucky's most Marc-obsessed editors to sound off on their all-time favorite Vuitton shows from Marc's time at the house. Click through to hear what they had to say—and to relive the shows for yourself!
