Louis Vuitton Spring Summer Men’s 2023 Show
The Louis Vuitton Mens Spring/Summer 2023 show took place in Paris, France this past week with a slew of house friends and ambassadors on hand for the festivities.
Youthful and extremely playful, the collection boasts plenty of inspired accents, including self inlay, colorful charms, and haphazard knick-knacks in the shape of various tools and trinkets.
A self-professed “Magnified playground”, the runway offerings present Toys are tools for the imagination. The playthings we are given early in life become building blocks for dreams and aspirations. In the Carré du Louvre, the Louis Vuitton Studio Prêt-à-Porter Homme imagines a magnified playground. Here, a giant children’s toy racetrack becomes a Yellow-Brick Road for the imagination: an evolutionary path for the mind where childlike fantasies come to life. It’s a transition from naïve to refined reflected in a collection that elevates the symbols of childhood through the savoir-faire of the Maison.
The late Virgil Abloh is credited throughout the press release as being a source of continued inspiration for the house following the beloved creative’s untimely passing.
Accessories range from beanies to bucket hats and more, with overtly cheeky monogram bags including canvas toy shapes. Celeb guests and VIP attendees included the likes of actress Jessica Biel, musician Justin Timberlake, supermodel Naomi Campbell, rapper Tyga and more.
