louis vuitton mens fall 2009 runway show

I’ve been trolling the net the last few hours for images from the Louis Vuitton Mens Fall 2009 Runway Show which debuted yesterday in Paris and finally I found my way to WWD, which reports:

Brands are playing to their strengths and this was writ large at Louis Vuitton, where Marc Jacobs and Paul Helbers, men’s wear studio director, put accessories and luxury travel front and center. Describing this quiet collection as “the traveling wardrobe of an African King, adapting his taste for a trip to Paris,” Helbers opted for tailoring which was more French than African. Military jackets in antelope leather or alligator were faintly reminiscent of the tribal theme that pulsed through Vuitton’s latest women’s show. “(It’s) much more subtle and I think that’s good in men’s so you don’t have costume party going on,” Jacobs said. Faint prints of flora and fauna crept on to formal satin jackets, which were paired with a generous trouser shape, pleated in the front for a draped effect. A slate blue cashmere coat was elegantly belted at the waist while a double-breasted velvet jacket was worn with vivid red sneakers designed by Kanye West. Hoodies, scarves and knit hats added a sporty edge to many looks. But no European safari is complete without luggage and the Vuitton man won’t be traveling lightly. Bag after bag of every description appeared, from a Keepall built like a soccer ball – a wink to African’s passion for the sport – to a monogrammed trunk that had to be wheeled down the runway.

It looks like the Waterproof Monogram Keepall has found brothers in a briefcase, a Steamer bag, a Sac Plat (and Keepall as mentioned above) built like a soccer ball and several luggage pieces.

I spot a Graphite, and is that Damier Geant in several incarnations I see?

Probably the piece d’resistance line is the one with the embossed monograms. I see a Keepall (or is that a man Speedy) and a Steamer bag, as well as a President in XL monograms.

Guys literally get the glitter in this collection, with these totes in iridescent fabric. One’s even like the Lurex scarf made into a man bag.

I like these scarves with the reinterpreted Damier checks in Graphite and additional colors.

And these ties.

Guys (and girls), digest and discuss. :)

    The fabric totes look so cheap and the soccer-like quilt is hideous!

    I’m not a fan of the honeycomb Keepall and Sac Plat either.

    the bags are gross. the model with stubbles: hot. looks like Milo Ventimiglia.

    tuliro nanaman ako. i’ve made my top picks. hopefully they will make it to production at sana hindi naman pamatay ang price. looks promising.

    @ ofaj – his hair looks weird. weave?

    @ deluxeduck – i’ve seen at least one of your picks, very interesting print. and i adore your reasoning behind the choice. i don’t know if i could get one of these (at least those that’d make it into production) since they all look expensive. hello embossed monogram! but i love the mono briefcase with the black leather trim. so homme. i’d be happy with a scarf and a tie. the red and blue iridescent totes look enticing, but I still don’t know what I really feel about them.

    i like the embossed keepall, the blue fabric bag, and the black tadao shaped bag. and the scarfs, and shoes and…

    i need to work for vuitton to get staff discount :x

    @ 00o00 – ah, excellent choices. i’m particularly loving the scarves! but you would have to wait for some months as an LV employee before you could buy the new releases, no?

    I want the Steamer with the trim in Black so bad. I just wonder how practical it would be as a city bag.

  9. 9 freshmess January 24, 2009 at 3:56 pm

    That would definitely stop traffic, Bagaholicboy. If I have one, I wouldn’t mind using it as a city bag.

    Wow the bags are really something special. Very stylish and elegant and it really is great fashion.

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she maintains the thought
    of a user in his/her mind that how a user can know it. Therefore that’s why this post is perfect.
