Louis Vuitton's Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear collection is a great example of the concepts referencing the past. Louis Vuitton's origins design concept "trip"reoccur here, and famous designer Stephen Jones' squashed hats also reappearance and got develop in the collection (Phelps, 2012). Marc Jacobs, the design director of Louis Vuitton, designed those old feeling suites for the coming fall season. The golden age of railroading was used as the background for Louis Vuitton Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear collection, and Jacobs explained that he was very interested in "things looking like they were from another time"(Phelps, 2012). Enormous crystals, over cropped pants and platform pumps added a lot of watching points for this collection, and 6-inch higher squashed hats brough strongly feeling of the elongated silhouette(Phelps, 2012). Also, bags for this collection also made people felt amazing. The new characteristics on the bags for this season is the oversize proportion and the exotic feeling (Phelps, 2012). Those bags may not strike people like modern proposal; however, only highest technologies in the world can pull off those elegant embroideries on Louis Vuitton Fall 2012 bags (Phelps, 2012).

Past fashion was referenced very successful by Louis Vuitton.
