DE­SIGNER KIM JONES HELPS BRING SOME FRENCH SAR­TO­RIAL FLAIR TO YOUR NEW FAVOURITE PAIR OF JEANS.

If you’re any­thing like us, you’ve been go­ing to Louis Vuitton to get your com­plete 15-piece mono­grammed lug­gage set for years – it’s a no-brainer. Now, though, the French fash­ion house has ex­panded its al­ready ex­ten­sive reper­toire – which in­cludes cloth­ing, shoes, bags, watches and writ­ing in­stru­ments – to launch a new denim range. And, not to un­der­sell things, we’re pretty ex­cited. Bri­tish de­signer Kim Jones has made no se­cret of his love for denim, call­ing it the “key to any wardrobe”. Now, he’s turn­ing that pas­sion into a col­lec­tion of jeans that com­bines raw Ja­panese denim and luxe Euro­pean fab­rics. Pre­sented in a range of washes and three key fits – slim stretch, slim clas­sic and clas­sic reg­u­lar – they’re avail­able on­line and in se­lected stores from this month. New colours will also be avail­able each sea­son. LV’S also re­leas­ing a five-piece sea­sonal cap­sule col­lec­tion, in­spired by de­tails in the Louis Vuitton ar­chive. Think rose gold de­tail­ing, hand­made treat­ments and but­tons with horn in­lays. But you’ll need to hurry – each style will be avail­able in a lim­ited edi­tion of 101 pairs, the street num­ber of Louis Vuitton’s iconic Champs-elysées store. Ob­vi­ously. Louis Vuitton per­ma­nent and sea­sonal ranges start at $765; ‘Her­itage Cap­sule’ col­lec­tion styles start at $1940; au.louisvuit­ton.com

A RANGE OF EL­E­MENTS IN­SPIRED BY LOUIS VUITTON’S 160YEAR HIS­TORY OF LUG­GAGE – SUCH AS HAN­DLES, COR­NERS AND RIV­ETS – FEA­TURE IN EACH PAIR.
