Moving on from the depressing First Look at Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2009 campaign, yesterday or should I say a few hours ago (Paris Time), Louis Vuitton has shown its Spring-Summer 2010 collection at Paris spearheaded by LV Studio Director Paul Helbers.
I just saw these images now and I think it’s one of the best menswear collections Louis Vuitton has ever released. I like the chill vibe in it, very comfortable and laid back. The colors are very well established, earth hues serves as the base while a pop of shocking yellow and orange gives the whole collection a zesty twist.
I really like a couple of looks, such as the second exit: those cropped pants are really nice, reminds me a bit of Balenciaga but its nonetheless cool pair of pants. The jackets were also good, I really really love this one, the one on the left… to die for. Also the sunnies, aw its the ‘it’ accessory for next season!
Here’s WWD’s review of the collection:
“Marc Jacobs and men’s wear studio director Paul Helbers are peddling an energetic fashion-meets-function theme for spring, inspired by New York City’s risk-taking bike messengers. On a sandy asphalt surface and with honking horns shrilling from speakers, the duo started with a washed linen blazer in taxi yellow paired with rolled-up shorts to set a downtown rush-hour mood. From there, they juxtaposed cropped nylon hoodies with sports jackets and handsome, ribbed cotton sweaters. Calling their men “gentleman butterflies of the urban landscapes,” the designers employed wing patterns to create fluttering silk jacquard trenches and racing bombers. And, as guys prefer to travel light, parkas were packed in to small satchels. And what’s a messenger without his bag? A variety of sacs in messenger shapes, as well as oversize backpacks in ostrich leather, were slung over shoulders or worn across the body.”
