With its range of seasonal goodies already available to well-heeled shoppers, Louis Vuitton‘s Spring/Summer 2018 range of goods is being readied now. The luxury behemoth takes cues from travel for its new range, specifically from one hypothetical travel manual.
Taking inspiration from Judith Schalansky’s 2009 book Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Never Set Foot On and Never Will, which recounted details of fantastical destinations without ever having visited them, creative director Kim Jones created a line of leather duffel bags, backpacks, shoulder bags, wallets and more. With Louis Vuitton’s branding and Monogram taking center stage, the collection is anything but understated, with bold hits of blue adding flair to the monochrome and earth-toned offerings. A series of leather luggage tags come already embossed with the names of desirable locals and silver-tipped drawstrings allow the tags to attach to any of the bags easily.
Louis Vuitton stores should receive the goods in due time, most likely right before the weather begins to warm up. Meanwhile, Louis Vuitton has been a mainstay on our year-end top 10 lists, with appearances on list of best collaborations, fashion pop-ups and trends.
