LOUIS VUITTON SPRING/SUMMER 2013
Filtered though Kim Jones’ and Marc Jacobs’ eyes, the nautical theme pervasive throughout this collection is anything but the norm. The look combines the myriad Vuitton man, at once classic, refined yet both street and pop. It is achieved through silhouettes—relaxed, easy, utilitarian, light and supple (even the crocodile jacket) and through a simple color palette of navy, white with flashes of yellow and fluorescent. You’ll also notice updates to check bags with newly trimmed in navy and neon (among other innovations), the prevalence of Epi deck shoes and what may be the triumphant return of the fisherman’s hat.
