The Inspiration Behind Louis Vuitton’s Silk Shirts

EMPIRE STATE OF MIND. New York City is the inspiration behind Louis Vuitton’s fall/winter 2017 menswear collection of silk shirts

Empire State of Mind

 

If you have ever seen Louis Vuitton’s advertising images from the ’30s, you’ll certainly notice a similar vibe running in the brand’s fall/winter 2017 menswear collection of silk shirts. In general, the inspiration behind the collection was New York City and the multitude of styles popular in the Empire State. There is also a heavy travel theme present, with a clear nod to Louis Vuitton’s collection of vintage travel and airplane postcards. The brand’s rich heritage is also clearly alluded to in the classic checkered pattern and monogram, along with art deco prints of vintage airplanes and Louis Vuitton’s classic luggage pieces. Furthermore, loose tailoring and easy fit make these pieces the perfect choice for those with youthful spirits.

You can find out more about the collection in our special report of Louis Vuitton’s  press presentation of it’s fall/winter 2017 collection in Taipei, Taiwan.
