"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.
