LOUIS VUITTON MEN’S SPRING/SUMMER 2013 – PARIS FASHION WEEK
Posted on July 14, 2012
Check out the images from the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2013 menswear catwalk at Paris Fashion Week with some of my key notes on colours and influences below.
Luxe nautical, sailing and a high end deep sea adventure were the main influences for Kim Jones’ spring/summer collection. The sporty colour palette began with navy and khaki with off white and stormy blue pieces throughout, eventually giving way to life jacket inspired fluorescent orange accents and a punctuation of neon yellows. The primary focus was on woven silk suits, bright neon yellow windbreakers and duffle bags, a silhouette that offered more fluidity, monogrammed knitwear with the nautical reference through an anchor detail, patch-worked shirts & shorts, oversized outerwear (a running theme throughout PFW), maritime brooches and neoprene scuba diving outfits for those that were confused regarding the seafaring theme.
