We have to hand it to Kim Jones – Louis Vuitton menswear under his hand has never failed to impress, and for pre-fall 2013 it’s as strong, balanced, and charming as ever.
Impeccably tailored suiting, structured tote bags, transseasonal trench coats – all serve as the basis for a perfectly wearable, saleable, classic collection that’s then elevated to a new level of stylishness by the addition of layered prints, exposed patterned socks, shearling-collared coats and rounded sunglasses. There’s a sense of adventure to the collection too, as if LV is compelling their menswear clientele to aspire to a James Bond-like lifestyle of travel and physicality. Hence hiking boots, sporty outdoor quilted coats and breast pockets emblazoned with a stately compass motif.
And by night? A fresh take on the men’s velvet suit. Seems this season, LV menswear has it all covered.
