To the beach

Fronted by UK musician 21 Savage, Louis Vuitton‘s new summer capsule transports us to LA’s Venice Beach for a collection celebrating the skate and art scenes of the California West Coast.

Seeped in a sense of vibrancy and creativity, the collection takes reference from the sun’s changing hues: dawn is symbolised by pastel suiting and Hawaiian shirts, before setting with Japanese denims and monogrammed cottons detailed with watercolour pops that appear to fade in and out – it all speaks of new beginnings, of nature’s evergreen changes. Also in the line-up, multi-coloured windbreakers provide lightweight outerwear options while jacquard blazers embody Virgil Abloh‘s signature relaxed tailoring.

Accessories expand the collection’s narrative, offering backpacks or tote bags, alongside nostalgic beach essentials including multicoloured link bracelets, lucky charm necklaces, printed silk scarves, caps, slip-ons (in canvas or leather) and sunglasses. The collection is finished with a new Monogram pattern that resembles an artist’s watercolour – “as if drops of water had fallen on ink.”
