Louis Vuitton’s Spring-Summer 2017 collection is finally out and we’re excited.
Inspired by Africa, their new collection, known as Blueprint, is all about asserting you identity, returning to your roots, to heritage, to formative influences and to the blueprint.
The Africa theme, combined with the rebellion of London Punk and the emblematic savoir faire of the Maison is what makes this collection truly unique.
Africa is evoked through rich, intricate textile treatments, exotic skins and a menagerie of animal prints. The palatte is dominated by Savannah-bleached shades with Saharienne detailing.
“There’s always something a little London hidden somewhere, though. This time it is the influence of Punk – albeit via Africa, where Frank Mashall’s “Renegades” portrait series of Bostwana biker gangs in heavy leather depicts the fusion of two disparate aesthetics. Add a third, the French elegance of Louis Vuitton” stated Kim Jones.
