Where Marc Jacobs goes, others will follow, and if his spring/summer 2013 ready-to-wear collection for Louis Vuitton is anything to go by, the matchy-matchy trend is set to be huge this season.
Jacobs revealed his creations in typically dramatic style at Paris Fashion Week using escalators to transport models to different levels of the show space and huge white and yellow chequerboard flooring.
Pairs of models walked in unison in different yet co-ordinating outfits, and while matching your clothes to your companion’s might be a tad extreme for everyday dressing, the idea of co-ordination is one to note.
In luxurious fabrics and cut to flatter, these clothes will gain you instant fashion kudos: wear matching separates such as these monochrome chessboard pieces and, if you’re brave enough, carry an incredible Louis Vuitton boxy bag, too.
