Louis Vuitton has gone on a head trip for Spring 2011. “It’s a rhapsody of three virtual scenarios for a digital bohemian, a man who travels the world from behind his computer screen” says Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Studio Director Paul Helbers under the artistic direction of Marc Jacobs.
This season’s bags are inspired by active sport are the perfect match with the ready-to-wear. They come with ingenuous details such as numerous straps and handles, zips and convenient pockets.
