Louis Vuitton and the America’s Cup have been sailing together ever since 1983, which saw the launch of the Louis Vuitton Cup, the challenger selection series whose winner would go forward to meet the holder of yachting’s most celebrated trophy. In celebration of the 35th edition of the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series, the French fashion house has unveiled a new lifestyle collection for men.
With looks for the beach, for a day at the sails, or for evenings out, the line features strong graphics and bold, contrasted coloring, paired with the House’s signature sophistication, elegance and savoir-faire. Some items are already available for purchase on the Louis Vuitton website such as Keepall 55 Bandoulière, $2,180; Latitude Slip On, $705; Latitude stole, $510; Apollo backpack, $2,470 or Latitude Floatable sunglasses, $435.

Racing starts with the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Qualifiers on 26th May and the top Challenger will meet Defending Champions ORACLE TEAM USA in the 35th America’s Cup Match presented by Louis Vuitton beginning on 17th June, 2017.
