"Friends and heroes"

    The Fall-Winter 2017collection is inspired of New York in the recent past - seventies, eighties, early nineties. A collective of quintessentially Manhattan artists come to mind: Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, Keith Haring, Robert Mapplethorpe and Andy Warhol.

    This is a group whose creative strength and signatures allowed them the freedom to collaborate with one another to create new works, most famously Basquiat and Warhol. Both their creative approaches and their own wardrobes are references here, combined with the logo-heavy, denimdominated Harlem style of Daniel “Dapper Dan” Day, Hip Hop’s outfitter of choice, and the louche seventies decadence of the denizens of Studio 54. These are visual touchstones for a New York state of dress.

    The dynamic New York culture of the recent past - seventies, eighties, early nineties - is the point of excursion for the Fall-Winter 2017 Louis Vuitton men’s collection.

    "It’s uptown and downtown", says Kim Jones, Louis Vuitton Men’s Artistic Director. "Artists and musicians, friends and heroes."

    The collection is an ode to the multitude of styles that co-exist and co-mingle in New York City. Inspiration comes from all walks of New York City life, spanning three decades and a multifaceted view of masculinity.

    What emerges is a new attitude and a silhouette of relaxed elegance: wide pants, an eased fit, a sense of the undone. Smart, but street-smart. Polished tailoring combines with workwear, the fabrics of Vuitton’s heritage of French luxury - silk, cashmere, vicuña, alligator - cut into genuine utilitarian shapes.

    Louis Vuitton opens a Supreme Pop-Up store in Sydney.

    Louis Vuitton will open a Men’s Pop-Up store this Winter in Sydney, Australia. The Pop-Up store will premiere a selection of the Autumn-Winter 2017 Men’s collection – a collaboration between Men’s Artistic Director Kim Jones and James Jebbia, founder of Supreme.

    For Autumn-Winter 2017, Supreme and Louis Vuitton collaborated for the first time, creating a capsule collection of clothing, accessories and jewellery, showcased alongside Vuitton’s own. More than a collaboration between two labels, this represents the excellence of New York street style and the Louis Vuitton’s French savoir-faire.

  • Monumental heels

    The Monumenta ankle boot is inspired by the work of Carlo Scarpa, one of the great Italian architects of the 20th century, known for the symmetry and starkness of his lines. Towering style!

    Comic book artist Esad Ribic draws the Hawaiian islands in a vigourous and realistic style.

    Esad Ribić has been drawing for as long as he can remember. He went to the Institute of Applied Arts in Zagreb, located in a wing of the Museum of Decorative Arts, an elegant building on one of the prettiest squares in the city. He chose to study graphic arts. He was mad about comic strips and had pretty much learned to read from them.
    Ribić applies colour directly to the paper, mixing watercolour and gouache.
    In other words, he paints. That’s his trademark. Collectors snap up the original art of his books. Thanks to his sense of mise en scène, taste for detail and genius for colour, they are real paintings.

    Each Travel Book title contains the artist's biography, travelogue, blurbs and captions. In its pages, the illustrations of renowned artists and promising young talents tell the stories of the cities and countries they have visited, depicting each place’s varied architecture and special light, and recording the passing days and the lives of its people.

    For each new title, a numbered and signed limited edition is available in select Louis Vuitton stores.
