Think Louis Vuitton is all about richy-rich classic monograms and tobacco hues? Think again. The purses **that rolled down the runway (carried by naughty nurse models) at the **Paris Fashion Week Louis Vuitton spring show revealed a dramatically funkier, and quite refreshing, spirit. Monogram prints were deconstructed, distressed, and emblazoned with quotations; purple, pink, and green ostrich leather added a vibrant punch; a funky blue handbag paired gold coil handles with a silk pastel monogram-meets-grafiti front; and logo-embroidered bags were splashed in technicolor shades and accented with large Flintstones-like stones. There were gorgeous peach ostrich satchels; laminated prints that recalled Mexican tablecloths; embroidered cartoonish illustrations; and multicolored snakeskin handles.

It was an explosion of colors, prints, and textures. In other words, it was a dismantling of the old Louis Vuitton norm. But, oh, was it fun.
