For Spring/Summer 2014, the Louis Vuitton traveler moves from the East to the West Coast of the United States. Let loose with the mythology of the American road trip in its many incarnations, yet never neglecting the practical and luxurious actuality of such an endeavor, the Spring/Summer 2014 collection embraces the narratives that make up a golden, global view of America.
“The collection is really about the freedom of the road and that freedom itself being luxurious” says Kim Jones, Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Studio and Style Director. “The clothing should have that do-what-you-want attitude. It’s a road trip drawing on elements of classic American culture from clothes, music to souvenirs. It’s the changing environment from city to forest to desert; that journey in a day from snow covered mountains to cacti in the desert that you can only really seem to have in America. Like the radio you listen to as you travel through the states.”
Embracing the iconography of classic American sportswear, utilitarian and formalwear – yet each given the inimitable, hyper-luxurious Vuitton view – the collection encompasses a notion of chic eclecticism. Building from a contemporary take on sixties varsity preppy, taking in the free-ranging spirit of the outdoorsman, nodding to the counter-culture credo and finally culminating in the sophisticated formality of the prom.
The bags in turn feature a distinctly on-the-road feel this season. A soft, roomy, luggage construction predominates, hybridized between the suitcase and the rucksack. A perforated take on the classic Damier pattern appears mainly in caramel Nomade leather – a colour theme that is also transposed to key items of leather outerwear in the collection.
Nomade Damier Oversize
Inspired by the Damier pattern, the great originality of the Nomade Damier Oversize line is found in the see-through effect created by the large, rice-grain perforations embellishing the leather. These holes, reflect the blend of savoir-faire and innovation so treasured at Louis Vuitton. With its inner leather pocket and suede lining, the Cabas North-South and Cabas East-West will surely delight connoisseurs seeking both exceptional materials and great functionality.

“A collection is often an actual journey for us; it comprises what you take with you and what you bring back both physically and mentally from the experience”, explains Kim Jones, Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Studio and Style Director, working under the Artistic Direction of Marc Jacobs. “This season involved travelling to the Himalayas for research and it was the mountain Kingdom of Bhutan that still had that mystery surrounding it; it was almost a fantasy idea as well as a real place. Backpacking has not ruined Bhutan – you have to be invited there – and it feels so exotic, almost from another time. It is the only place in the world where snow leopards and tigers cross paths and that is one of the reasons why the snow leopard became a chief motif in the collection.”
The bags for Fall/Winter 2013 play very much on the traditional notion of maroquinerie. The large grained Taurillon leather also makes a new appearance this season. The Lockit bag here makes its debut for men suitably oversized and also finds its counterpart in giant totes. Backpack shapes are frequently utilized and run throughout, even featuring in a cross fertilization with a Vuitton trunk to be carried on the back. Here the recognizable Monogram is eschewed, instead reverting to the traditional trunk material, leather. Branding is subtle this season in the bags, most frequently appearing as a shaved “V” in the shearling pieces.
“For Louis Vuitton’s Autumn-Winter 13-14 collection we were commissioned to create our own interpretation of a French baroque floral print. Using hand painted watercolour artworks from our archives, and inspired by the intricacies of Himalayan traditional arts, we added twisted and surprising elements to the creeping floral design; subverting and reinventing the classic.”
This season sees Kim Jones commissioned the artists Jake and Dinos Chapman to supply key motifs in the collection. “I sat down with Jake Chapman and we talked through the idea of a Garden in Hell”, says Jones. “This was the phrase Diana Vreeland famously used to describe her apartment. It was something we both responded to, that and all of the unusual animals to be found in the Himalayas.” The motif appears in this season’s textiles, shoes, accessories and bags. Almost like the Chapman’s own spin on the Buddhist idea of “wrathful deities”, fearsome talismanic protectors from evil and a bridge between the natural and supernatural world this season.
