Kim Jones and Louis Vuitton showed its Spring/Summer 2018 collection few days ago and it’s interesting to contemplate about presence of an array of new accessories, with everything from a variety of metallic duffels, bucket hats, bags, belts and sandals and more. Jones has never been afraid to use color in his collections, and the new 2018 Spring/Summer collection shows Louis Vuitton’s classic canvas monogram print – but vibrant blue, yellow and red accents. Many of the pieces feature mountain climbing-inspired details like functional carabiners and nylon rope or strap accents.
One canvas pouch bag has a lanyard attached and layered over the zipper. This serves as an added performance feature as well as a stylistic decision. Metallic utility buckles and matching sunglasses are direct references to climbing culture.
