There’s more to Louis Vuit­ton’s Fall/ Win­ter’17 range of leather goods than their col­lab­o­ra­tion with Supreme.

LV leather.

As you are distracted by the beau­ti­ful fla­menco dancer (in a scar­let dress, no less) that is the Louis Vuit­ton part­ner­ship with Supreme, her fa­ther and men­tor, Kim Jones strums away in the back­ground, prov­ing his man­tle as a mae­stro of his craft and tempo with the rest of Louis Vuit­ton’s FW’17 range of ac­ces­sories.

With the Mono­gram Eclipse as his ma­jor chords, he puts a twist on house sta­ples such as the Christo­pher PM back­pack and the Danube PM sling bag with the ad­di­tion of Epi leather patch­work, while crank­ing it up a notch with the in­tro­duc­tion of the Tau­ril­lon, a cir­cu­lar leather key holder that dou­bles up as a bag charm.

Jones also knows when to leave the clas­sic riffs un­touched, as seen with the steamer back­pack—can­vas for his sa­fari-in­spired illustrations in the SS’17 col­lec­tion—that has been stripped down to al­low its sil­hou­ette to shine.
