Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection is pretty much a travel themed affair – a road trip imagined from American East coast to West coast. The Men’s Bag Collection also continues the on-the-road theme with designs that feature hybrid styles between the suitcase and the rucksack. Bags feature Damier patterns with perforations in cognac colored Nomade leather and in taupe and cognac micro-perforated soft leather.
Kim Jones Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Studio and Style Director explained the thinking behind his Spring/Summer 2014 collection this way “The collection is really about the freedom of the road and that freedom itself being luxurious. The clothing should have that do-what-you-want attitude. It’s a road trip drawing on elements of classic American culture from clothes, music to souvenirs. It’s the changing environment from city to forest to desert; that journey in a day from snow covered mountains to cacti in the desert that you can only really seem to have in America. Like the radio you listen to as you travel through the states.”
