Marc Jacobs - "I don't think there's such a thing as good or bad taste."

The Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton SS2011 collection showing in Paris this week should be entitled 'Opulenza'! Who was it that said Americans can't do really 'out there' fashion theatre ? It's Miss Saigon meets Chicago meets The Lion King all rolled into one fabulous fashion production without the singing and dancing ! 
This decadent and luxuriously indulgent collection reminded me of a John Galliano offering for Christian Dior from a few seasons ago yet the difference is that Jacobs has incorporated some sound commercial panache to the tailoring finish, I liked the black piping that gave the garments structure,  making it instantly wearable and sexy without compromising too much on the boldness and razzmatazz that a big brand such as Louis Vuitton needs to sell its sub products such as bags, belts and jewellery.
Jacobs rather defensively after the show said "taste is subjective, "I don't think there's such a thing as good or bad taste." well I agree, for me he has proved he well deserves the respect and admiration the industry gives him, a stunning collection as good as it gets.
