Julie de Libran believes attention to detail is “everything”.
The creative director of womenswear at Louis Vuitton is Marc Jacobs’ helping hand and works with the designer to produce the brand’s amazing collections.
While it might seem that the appearance of the clothing is most important, Julie believes in leaving no stone unturned.
“Attention to detail is everything. Whether it’s a button or a silhouette,” she explained to British newspaper The Telegraph.
“Even the inside of our clothes is as important as the outside – you might find a men’s striped lining inside a jacket sleeve. It’s so elegant and playful.”
Louis Vuitton is known for its love affair with lace.
The designer explained why she likes to incorporate it into so many of her pieces.
“It’s part of a woman’s life from beginning to end,” Julie said of the material.
“It’s sexy, it’s virginal. We use it in every possible way, printed, flocked, in tweed and as itself, of course.”
The Pre-Fall 13 collection was inspired by François Truffaut’s 1968 film The Bride Wore Black.
It includes super-short skirts, double-breasted jackets and over-the-top sleeves.
“I didn’t watch the film again – it’s more important to work from memory than to be literal,” she argued.
“Women want to add some excitement to their wardrobe all year round… Something new and desirable.
“The new collection has this typically French woman with a Left Bank feel. She’s happy in the cafés, she’s strong, she dresses bravely.”
