Louis Vuitton Men's Pre-Fall 2013


New York: From luxe velvet suits to sporty hiking ensembles, Kim Jones offered the Louis Vuitton man stylish options for any occasion. The designer started out with looks that seemed geared toward travel. Tailored overcoats were layered over silky paisley shirts and simple sweaters, and looks were styled with laptop cases or duffels. The classic logo trunks were stacked in the background. Next, a series of casual looks appeared. Slim-fitting jeans and corduroys in saturated tones were rolled up at the ankle, showing off luxurious croc hiking boots. Intarsia sweaters and plaid button-ups were a highlight, and a range of desirable puffer and blouson jackets completed most of the outfits. Jones rounded out the collection with several elegant suits. Pants were slim and cropped, and there were both double- and single-breasted jackets on display. Though the offering was wide-ranging and diverse, it was consistent in its sophistication.–Joanna Manganaro
