Kim Jones, in his role as creative director for Louis Vuitton's menswear, is one of the few designers who constantly delivers relevant, desirable and extremely wearable luxury pieces season after season. If I ever had to choose a single brand to wear for the rest of my life, LV would definitely be at least in my top 3.
For the 2014 Pre-Fall Collection Jones has concentrated on rich colours – most notably deep blues and maroons – and luxury fabrics. These two are applied on wardrobe staples such as the anorak, the bomber jacket or the hunting jacket. Outwear especially stands out with a variety of styles that could easily have you sorted for at least 3 our of the 4 seasons.
I also favour the slim silhouettes, which give the looks an effortless masculine feel and get away from some of the extreme skinny or baggy fits some designers insist on proposing.
