ACROSS AMERICA
Paris: Kim Jones derives inspiration from a road trip across the heartland of North America for the S/S 14 Louis Vuitton collection. Varsity, gas station, motorcycle, and Boy Scout jackets represent the simplicity of Midwestern culture, and are given the Louis Vuitton luxury touch with tie-dyes by hand (in a Japanese atelier), tailored suits and tuxedos, and lush leathers. —Kathleen Tso
