JEANS AND JONES. Kim Jones, the artistic director for menswear at Louis Vuitton, has a soft spot for vintage jeans since the age of 16
So, it wasn’t much of a surprise when news broke out that he had developed an exclusive men’s denim collection for the brand.
Scouring the best of the best from Japan, where original denim looms and indigo techniques flourish, he incorporated bits and pieces from signature Louis Vuitton trunks to the denim pairs.
There are five pieces with three key fits: slim stretch, slim classic and classic regular. For each variant, as many as 101 pieces will be available —a nod to the address of Louis Vuitton’s store at the Champs-Elysées. Two of the hottest items would be the denim jacket hand-sprayed with a beautiful gold finish, and the jeans with a trunk handle in crocodile leather at the back under the waistband.
