Louis Vuitton’s Tasteful “Future Heritage”

louis-vuitton-mens-details-autumn-fall-winter-2016-pfw64

Mr. Kim Jones is back at it again for the men’s department. And the boys go wild!

The whole concept is old and new Paris. But in hindsight, the zeitgeist seem to carry influences from military silhouettes.  You’ll see throughout the collection that a new Monogram Eclipse and Monogram Illusion sneaks into you so subtely, that perhaps monograms are no longer as loud as one would normally think. Totally in LoVe with it.

Trunks

Not exactly Petite Malle, but of the same family. And in a more sensibly useful form factor as far as malles go. I especially love the small ones with detachable slings!

Monogram Illusion

Small Leather Goods

Hard cases it looks like.  It’s also a bit rugged, with the nylon slings instead of monogram. But it seems much more elegant compared to the monogram canvas slings from Fall/Winter 2015.

Messengers

I still can’t get over the Monogram Eclipse. And that tasteful full leather in fatigue.

Totes

Weekend totes are always a good type of bags to keep around. Catch the most beautiful one in some sort of reverse empreinte leather. Now that’s beautiful monogramming.

Backpack Bucket Bags

Here’s something interesting. We saw this kind of bag a couple of seasons ago for Spring/Summer 2016. It didn’t look so practical. And it seems they’ve refined the bucket bag silhouette for men just right, making it sized, and purposed, just right – complete with top handles too. They are so beautiful.

Keepall

There’s always the pièce de résistance. And in this case, the Keepall wins. First, there is this beautiful sporty take on the keepall we know and already love.

Second is looking to be an updated Keepall, in full leather with what I’d call green fatigue that’s so gorgeously eclipsed. It’s just so ridiculously beautiful and can’t wait for next year.

Finally, a show that didn’t take bags as an afterthought!
