The Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2016 Mens Fashion Show during Paris Fashion Week presented a youthful relaxed luxe look. Featuring jackets cut from indigo-dyed Kobe leather (the cows are massaged with sake; the hides are sun-dried). The pearls that appeared as accessories were also indigo-dyed, actually in the shell. And there was a small group of fully reversible pieces made from organza-backed lambskin, so ludicrously light that they were practically incomprehensible.
Designer Kim Jones said he was fascinated by the way ideas migrate, Japan’s absorption of the language of American sportswear being his biggest case in point. But he does exactly the same kind of thing in his designs, filtering traditions of all kinds through his own pop sensibility.
