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