Paris Menswear SS15: Louis Vuitton

This season Vuitton was a flavoursome bouquet of chic, and what really worked in Kim Jones’ favour was the felicity of matured seasonings, none of which overpowered. The creative director actually drew on his saporous travels to India and based tidy uniformed military styling around the nation’s sumptuous heritage, closing in particularly on their military presence. One thing that promulgated was the pride India have always taken in establishing their staunch infantry legions, take for instance the shirt and short combos and light trench coats in shades of turmeric.

Speaking of the colour scheme, magnificently intense from the first look to the last, Jones has a supernatural understanding of coalescing fabric and hearty colours in a number of practical leisurely looks, which by no means lose any of their unique qualities due to rationality. On the more experimental side, flight suits, which have been seen here and there this menswear season, were given the ritz treatment with ornate patterns and sparkly embellishments that would certainly coax a purloining magpie or two. In the grand scheme at Vuitton there was also a keen sense for sharpness, trousers were pleated finely and also cut with the highest waists we have seen as of late, and in neutral shades of khaki, white and rich navy blue.

At one point tones alike were contrasted perfectly with shirts with a geometric tessellation V print, Vuitton’s new covert calling card. A handful of suits, complete with all the trimmings, such as the eternally requisite pocket square, then topped off what was an incisively expressive collection. Some looks looked plain senseless paired with trainers though, but Jones is probably just waiting for sports-luxe to run its course, and to that we say quick sticks.
