First Dibs: Louis Vuitton Resort Look 22

Published June 22, 2012

Julie de Libran had history on her mind for Louis Vuitton’s latest Resort collection. The former French colony of Indochine inspired the cross-hatched visors, drop-waist dresses and loose skirts epitomized in the above Look 22. Unfazed by the heat of Southeast Asia, Libran layers a thigh-grazing, collared coat with a knee-length dress. We love the high-heeled, laced, peep-toe boots that are modest compared to the chunky platforms in the remaining looks of the collection. Clearly, there is no need to bear all in the tropical sun; as Libran reveals, the key to a resort collection is relaxed, free-flowing fabrics that still allow for a feminine form.

This First Dibs look was selected by Interview assistant market editor Stephanie Strauss.
