Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 10 collection was inspired by "hippie punks"
Creative director Marc Jacobs showed the line at Paris Fashion Week on 07.10.09, and revealed his theme was the New Age clothes popular in the 80s and 90s.
He said: "Street clothes, embracing the hippie-cyber, tribal-punk world."
Models wore huge, brightly-coloured Afro wigs and pranced down the catwalk to music by British girl band The Saturdays.
Glitter anoraks, shirts with fringing, satin corset, denim hot-pants and moccasins with heels all featured heavily.
Other accessories included cowboy boots, PVC clogs with a fur trim and duffle bags.
The show attracted an A-list clientele, with Catherine Deneuve, Freida Pinto, Leighton Meester, Sophie Dahl and fiance Jamie Cullum, Katy Perry, Alison Goldfrapp and Daisy Lowe all in attendance.
However, not everyone was quite so lucky.
Marc - who started his September 2007 Marc Jacobs show two hours late - was keen to stick to his schedule, with the preview starting at precisely 2.30pm.
Many had to rush to their seats, while those who were late were not allowed entry.
Also showing yesterday was Roland Mouret, famed for his form-fitting, structured dresses.
He offered new ideas in the form of skirts and trousers in silk, with draped fronts.
His show notes stated: "This is not about a single aesthetic, a single show, a single dress."
Loose-fitting skirts, silk dungarees and shorts were also featured.
Dresses were not totally forgotten, with wrap and coat versions in muted tones all on display.
Britain's Telegraph newspaper reports: "Mouret did not forget his body-con heritage, particularly evident in a second-skin cardigan and leggings in a black and white horizontal stripe. And underneath raffia-look coats, with epaulettes, were glove-tight, power-net dresses - Mouret's reworking of the 80s stretch obsession."
Miuccia Prada's Miu Miu show included lots of prints, including a cat and bird.
Boleros were one of the biggest looks, seen teamed with trousers in a suit and over a shirt or A-line dress.
Other looks included see-through bodices, A-line skirts and high waists.
Kenzo's show featured camouflage, safari jackets and hooded tops.
Designer Antonio Marrass was inspired by North Africa, using a palette of blue, beige and khaki.
For the finale, models donned turbans and wrap-tops and strutted down the catwalk as gold sequins fell.
