At the root of Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection, designer Kim Jones looked to create a link between the international cultural capitals of Paris and London. The connection is not as far-fetched as one would imagine, dating back to the days of Louis Vuitton’s son, Georges Vuitton who held an affinity for Tokyo. Further reinforcing a statement of connection, Kim Jones sourced fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez who was among the first to actively take to Tokyo for inspiration trips. The result was the use of exquisite fabrics of laboriousness nature included woven silk made to the tune of only 20 cm per day as well as a selection of exotic leathers. Detailing was a strong suit for the whole line which offered a real world connection with its intangible concepts.
