First seen as part of the SS20 Taïgarama collection, Louis Vuitton has now introduced its entire Pre-Collection Fall/Winter 2020 ready-to-wear menswear capsule. Launching in time for summer, despite the FW20 nod in the seasonal denotation, the Virgil Abloh-directed designs are warm weather-ready.
Less posh than the NIGO-affiliated LV² range and beachier than Spring/Summer 2020, the Pre-Collection Fall/Winter 2020 selection is rife with accessible silhouettes emblazoned with bold monogram graphics. Taking cues from pop art colors, the capsule boasts washed-out prints and stylized branding atop neutral anoraks, slouchy tees and trim shorts, the latter offering both all-over patterns and tonal orange. Bucket hats and trek-friendly footwear align with crisp white shirting and intarsia sweaters to create a high-low juxtaposition, a neat coalescence of Abloh’s design ethos.
Look for the entire summer capsule to arrive on Louis Vuitton’s web store in April, along with physical boutiques after reopening from quarantine.
