After surprising Paris with Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2020 menswear collection — and artistic director Virgil Abloh nearly stole the show with new Off-White™ x Nike sneakers — everyone has a more critical take a gander at the dreamlike “Paradise on Earth” presentation. Offering lush rugged browns and sparkly accents, the range delivers a variety of statement pieces established in the luxury house’s familiar codes.
Opulent layering pieces grace the dramatically-presented mannequins that involve the showroom, incorporating suiting dusted with sparkle and embellished with cloud-and-sky imagery, integrating with the collection’s theme. A comparative blue and white palette inform a total capsule regarding things, from sneakers and bags to bomber jackets and slacks. Ruffled garments, lacey cut-outs, and knit beanies loan a slight air of femininity to the menswear range, taken to the outrageous with forcefully draped coats that boast asymmetric hemlines and glittery shirts.
Chunky sunglasses, crocodile leather belts and different monogram-loaded iterations of a new sneaker silhouette show up all through the range, supplemented by hefty derbies raised by removable straps (embellished with monograms or opulent fur to drive home the collection’s cloud theme) and a lot of rainbow-tinged jewelry. Timeless Louis Vuitton Trunks are done with a resplendent mirror sparkle, even inserted with functional speakers to help kick the party off. The amicable vibes proceed with thanks to a monogram-rich camping set, total with folding chairs, lamp and metal thermos — these things feel especially like an augmentation of the outdoorsy attitude put forth by Spring/Summer 2020.
