Louis Vuitton Fall Winter 2013 Menswear Mens Show Shoes

Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2013 Men’s Shoes


“A collection is often an actual journey for us; it comprises what you take with you and what you bring back both physically and mentally from the experience”, explains Kim Jones, Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Studio and Style Director, working under the Artistic Direction of Marc Jacobs. “This season involved travelling to the Himalayas for research and it was the mountain Kingdom of Bhutan that still had that mystery surrounding it; it was almost a fantasy idea as well as a real place. Backpacking has not ruined Bhutan – you have to be invited there – and it feels so exotic, almost from another time. It is the only place in the world where snow leopards and tigers cross paths and that is one of the reasons why the snow leopard became a chief motif in the collection.”

The Magic Mountain. This season sees the Vuitton traveller, always journeying both literally and metaphorically, venture to the magical mountains of the Himalayas, particularly to the Kingdom of Bhutan.

The shoes from Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2013 Menswear show feature study soles and a flash of subtle metal work. Boots and derby shoes come in beautiful grained leather that contrasts with its more decadent counterpart, alligator, in the same styles that appear in a palette of navy, moss green and earth brown. For evening, patent leather richelieus and velvet dancing slippers with an intricately crafted teddy bear patch are the standout pieces. They are an appropriate opulent counterpoint to the “Garden in Hell” theme of the collection.

As for craftsmanship, the shoes are crafted using the Blake construction technique for immediate suppleness and comfort. Blake stitching crosses the entire structure of the shoe and is visible on the inside. The thread is embedded in the outsole making it less vulnerable to wear and tear.
