The Louis Vuitton Men’s Fall-Winter 2018 fashion show took place yesterday and we must say it was nothing short of stunning. The show marks the end of the tenure for Kim Jones, artistic director of menswear at LV since 2011.
What better way to say farewell than with a presentation where each look is just as jaw-dropping as the next. Louis Vuitton threw in everything but the kitchen sink with this collection! (and we mean that in the best of ways). This 52 look collection was innovative and inspiring as it had everything from chic camping looks to ultramodern business professional looks. While leggings with shorts is not a new trend for men, LV definitely got it right with their cool monogram prints and color choices. There was no shortage of bags for every occasion on the runway which included, bucket bags, backpacks, cross-body “kaboodle” bags, and briefcase style. The range of fashion was such that all men would be able to find something that meets their needs.

Via Paper Magazine:
After the models took their last lap in Louis Vuitton’s Fall ’18 in Paris today, Jones shimmied down the runway to take his final bow, flanked by long-time friends Moss and Campbell, who wore matching belted PVC LV-monogrammed trenches and combat boots because icons only.
Jones, who famously gave the luxury fashion house street cred, announced yesterday he was stepping down from the brand which he has helmed for the past seven years. The designer has risen to be a prominent figure in the menswear game, with his recent collaboration with streetwear giant Supreme, in particular, shaking the industry.
As to where Jones will go next, we just don’t know (but here’s looking at you, Burberry!).
