Louis Vuitton celebrates the similarities in the global style with their new Spring Summer 2016 menswear collection presented during Paris Fashion Week SS16.
“Rather than look at one destination, this season I decided to look at travelling the world. Now the world traveller picks things up wherever he goes and makes them his own. In this collection we are using many ideas and techniques from South East Asia, from Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. At the same time, we wanted to look at how those styles share so much globally; say how the traditional dress of the Lahu tribe in Thailand looks so much like contemporary sportswear. Fashion is a language that reflects different cultures and tribes globally from New York, Tokyo, Bangkok and Paris – and Louis Vuitton is really a part of that.” – Louis Vuitton Men’s artistic director Kim Jones.
