Louis Vuitton

Spring-Summer 2013 - Kim Jones took his collection to the seaside in every kind of way possible. He wanted to convey a man who could spend his life travelling the world enjoying all the things the ocean has to offer. With both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic oceans serving his home town of France, being surrounded by the ocean was inspiring. We saw fishermen with baggy waterproof raincoats and rainhats, scuba divers, life jackets with padding and PVC, yachtsmen and beachgoers. The light fabrics and colours, some providing a wet look, were perfect oceanside attire.  His inspiration generally came from the traveller and the patchwork ensemble of the old Japanese technique Boro, a very artisanal and time consuming technique, made the tatty bohemian traveller become luxurious and rare.  The collection definitely made us want to be beside the seaside.
