From its beginnings as the originator of the flat trunk, Louis Vuitton has always been about the art of escaping in style. Consider the fact that designer Kim Jones is himself an avid wanderer and natural historian and it’s no surprise that the house’s Fall/Winter 2013 presentation was one of Paris Fashion Week’s most buzzed-about shows. Taking luxury exploration to new heights — both literally and figuratively — Jones sojourned to Bhutan and Nepal to research the collection and set it against the backdrop of a 20-foot-tall projection of Mount Everest. Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2013 isn’t quite ready to hit stores, but we were recently presented with the opportunity to preview the collection in all of its fur-trimmed glory. In addition to the house’s storied luggage and accessories, next season’s wares include runway standouts like ethnic-printed evening wear, snow leopard coats and leather jackets – sumptuous accoutrements for the most adventurous, and well-heeled, of travelers.
