Louis Vuitton Men's Spring/Summer 2018

The summer spirit is alive and well, with island-hopping on the itinerary for Louis Vuitton S/S '18

The spirit of wanderlust is strong with this one.

As is the idea of 'fusion' – a key theme Kim Jones sought to convey in the Louis Vuitton Men's Spring/Summer 2018 collection, presented last week at the Domaine national du Palais-Royal. Inspired by the luxurious pursuit of island-hopping – be it Hawaii, Hong Kong or New Zealand – it was all about hybrids and juxtapositions, fusing different elements together to form a collection that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Short of transporting the audience to the beaches of Bora Bora, Jones offered up plenty of tropical elements in bright, breezy hues of deep ocean blue, vermillion, and yellow interspersed with earthy khaki. Aloha shirts – something one would typically categorise as tacky, tourist attire – were elevated with exotic foliage prints and overlaid with matching print organza while a fitted sportswear silhouette – inspired by surf culture – contrasted with languid tailoring. Fabrics were lightweight

and fluid, from technical silks to seersucker and a paper-thin lambskin leather bonded with neoprene. But the theme of fusion was even more so prevalent in the accessories. Take for example the 'Monogram Split', a new take on the iconic Monogram canvas with contrasting colourways emphasised by a centre seam. Even footwear wasn't spared from a little cross-breeding: clogs combined with hiking boots for a Honolulu meets Harajuku effect. But the emphasis on the sportswear theme is most apparent with the introduction of LV's new sports-inspired line, 'Monogram Outdoor', which mixes canvas with scuba zips, carabiner clips, cording, and canvas for all your outdoor pursuits.
