For Fall 2021 Louis Vuitton presents a Menswear capsule collection designed for urbanites who favour a formal silhouette with subtle twists of nonchalance and chic.
Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2021 Collection draws inspiration from a 1914greetings card written by Gaston-Louis Vuitton. It featured an expressionist bouquet of owers against a checkerboard background, which looked like Vuitton might have scratched it out himself. The handwritten inscription “Marque L. Vuitton déposée” has even been subtly incorporated into the print.
This motif – straight out of the Maison’s archives – has come full circle to be right back on trend this season. Versions of it in charcoal grey, camel and lime are applied to technical nylon outerwear, incorporated into double-faced wool coats, printed onto cotton shirts and t-shirts, and coordinated with footwear and accessories such as neck pendants, belts and hats.
Here the multicolour tie-dye – a reinterpretation of one of Virgil Abloh’s earliest prints and a key feature of Louis Vuittonmenswear – is transformed into Monogram Sunset and used
to pattern jackets and long or short-sleeved shirts. Alongside 3D-printed leather jackets, hoodies, cargo pants and denim Bermuda shorts, this makes up an ideal capsule collection for this Fall. The garments are complemented by a selection of leather pieces including the popular Keepall, the must-have Sirius briefcase and the Trio Messenger bag – all available with this new checkerboard pattern in turquoise or charcoal grey. As for the Keepall, the Soft Trunk, the Horizon suitcase and small leather goods, these come in amboyant Monogram Sunset canvas.
The Fall capsule collection will be available in Louis Vuitton stores from 4 September 2021.
