Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring/Summer 2012 Catalog
This season’s collection puts the emphasis on the style of the luxurious modern global traveler. Simply put, a journey literally and metaphorically is at the heart of the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012 collection. “At its simplest level, it is about the idea of travel and what it means at this point in time,” explains Kim Jones, the Men’s Style and Studio Director, who will sign his debut collection for Louis Vuitton under the Artistic Direction of Marc Jacobs. Afterall, travel forms the foundation of the brand as it traces it roots back to the design of high end trunk luggage.
This is a fundamental part of the lineage and language of Louis Vuitton and is a central component of what it stands for today,” continues Jones. “At the same time, the collection is looking at the idea of a personal journey. It forms the notion of a coming-of-age through exploration and travel.”
The catalog was shot by Alsdair McMellan that took place during and African safari.
