In his first collection for Louis Vuitton, American designer Marc Jacobs was unafraid in making his bold sportswear statement: proportions, minimalism, and the best fabrics will make an arresting vision, even wtih proven wardrobe basics. Jacobs, a brilliant interpreter of American popular culture from smiley faces to Miami hotel towels, has shown great skill at respecting the circumspect Vuitton image and tradition.
