Marc Jacobs is leaving Louis Vuitton after 16 years of being with the brand. The esteemed designer presented his final show in Paris yesterday.

In a piece for the New York Times, Suzy Menkes and Eric Wilson note that the show had hinted the end of an era:
…The mood at the show was wistful. It was intensely back and had many elements — a carousel, a grand hotel elevator and twin escalators — that had been stage sets at previous LV shows.

“It’s like a funeral,” said Edward Enninful, the fashion and style director of W magazine, as he entered the show.

And the showgirl clothes, with their giant Folies Bergère feather headdresses and jet-embroidered chiffon, gave the impression that the party performance was over, not least because bluejeans were often worn as a counterpart to the finery.
According to Business of Fashion:
Jacobs’ successor at Louis Vuitton has yet to be named, but French designer Nicolas Ghesquière is widely thought to be the current frontrunner for the role.
