"Friends and heroes"

    The Fall-Winter 2017collection is inspired by New York during the past - seventies, eighties, early nineties, and present day. A collective of quintessential Manhattan artists such as, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, Keith Haring, Robert Mapplethorpe and Andy Warhol.

    This is a group whose creative strengths and signatures allowed them the freedom to collaborate with one another to create new work. The two most famous collaborative artists are Basquiat and Warhol. Both their creative approaches and their own wardrobes are referencened here, combined with the logo-heavy, denim-dominated Harlem style of Daniel “Dapper Dan” Day,Hip Hop’s outfitter of choice, as well as the louche seventies decadence of the denizens of Studio 54. These are visual touchstones for a New York state of dress.

    The dynamic New York culture of the past - seventies, eighties, early nineties - is the inspiration of the Fall-Winter 2017 Louis Vuitton men’s collection.

    "It’s uptown and downtown", says Kim Jones, Louis Vuitton Men’s Artistic Director. "Artists and musicians, friends and heroes."

    The collection is an ode to the multitude of styles that co-exist and co-mingle in New York City. Inspiration comes from all walks of New York City life, spanning three decades and a multifaceted view of masculinity.

    What emerges is a new attitude and a silhouette of relaxed elegance; wide pants, an eased fit, a sense of the undone. Smart, but street-smart. Polished tailoring combines with workwear, the fabrics of Vuitton’s heritage of French luxury - silk, cashmere, vicuña and alligator, cut into genuine utilitarian shapes.

  • Monumental heels

    The Monumenta ankle boot is inspired by the work of Carlo Scarpa, one of the great Italian architects of the 20th century. Carlo Scarpa is best known for the symmetry and starkness of his lines, as well as his towering style.

    Comic book artist Esad Ribic draws the Hawaiian islands in a vigorous and realistic style.

    Esad Ribić has been drawing for as long as he can remember. He attended the Institute of Applied Arts in Zagreb, located within the Museum of Decorative Arts. Ribić began his career in art when he chose to study graphic arts. Growing up, Esad was mad about comic strips, and pretty much taught himself to read from them.

    Ribić applies color directly to paper, mixing watercolor and gouache, in other words, he paints. Collectors snap up the original art from his books. Thanks to his sense of mise en scène, taste for detail and genius for color, they are real paintings.

    Each Travel Book contains the artist's biography, travelogue, blurbs and captions. In its pages are the illustrations of renowned artists, and promising young talents telling the stories of the cities and countries they have visited, depicting each place’s varied architecture and special light, while recording the passing days and lives of its people.

    For each new title, a numbered and signed limited edition is available in select Louis Vuitton stores.
