It seems like Marc Jacobs has outdone himself yet again, which is a feat that most designers seldom achieve during their careers.

Indeed, change is something constant with Marc Jacobs, who continually delivers on each of his fashion shows for the iconic and legendary fashion house of Louis Vuitton.

For his train station-themed fashion show earlier this year, the 49-year-old LV creative director went for a checkerboard-themed backdrop for spring/summer 2013, which highlighted his 60s mod-inspired collection that was showcased at Paris Fashion Week.

The checkerboard theme truly complemented Louis Vuitton’s aesthetics and once again, Marc was able to show how he is a true genius when it comes to fusing together vintage retro fashion with modern and contemporary designs.

In addition, this is probably Marc’s first-ever LV collection in which he did not feature the famous LV monogram as well.

We’ve picked out some of our favorite skirt pieces from the collection straight off the runway, which features simple basic cuts with varying checkered prints, subtle floral prints, and some embellished pieces.

Aside from Jacobs’ usual black and white pairings, he also went for some refreshing splashes of yellow and other earth-toned hues as well.
