THE SPORTING LIFE
Paris: With a label like Louis Vuitton, it’s expected that luxury will permeate every season, and for S/S 13 style director Kim Jones proved it goes hand-in-hand with a sporty type of swagger inspired by yachting culture. From double-breasted suit jackets paired with relaxed trousers and chunky sneakers to a hoodie rendered in crocodile worn with boat shoes, Vuitton’s models were ready for both a high-end gym and the deck of a ship. Further along, Jones added techy anoraks and functional backpacks before embarking on a surf trip with branded rash-guard t-shirts. But it wasn’t all activewear, as the collection also explored vacation-ready pajama tops and checkered summer suiting, offshoots which were more successful than a series of awkward patchwork denim pieces. — Nina Stotler
