The Louis Vuitton pre-fall 2024 collection is a voyage through style that sails from the storied docks of naval tradition into the contemporary waters of fashion.
With Pharrell Williams at the helm, the collection anchors its aesthetic in the rich heritage of maritime attire while infusing it with a fresh, street-savvy sensibility that speaks to today’s eclectic tastes.
The classic stripe, as enduring as the rhythm of the sea, is boldly reenvisaged throughout the collection. Tracing the hem of an immaculate white jacket, the stripes salute the crisp uniforms of sailors. At the same time, the garment’s design, a relaxed fit with shoulders artfully slouched, speaks to a contemporary nonchalance.
Paired ingeniously with the ensemble are shorts in a stark black hue, providing a study in contrast—their precise tailoring stands against the jacket’s casual demeanor, a harmonious play of textures and silhouettes.

In another ensemble, a double-breasted suit in an ethereal white is accented with the subtle geometry of a checkered pattern, suggesting the meticulous grid of a captain’s charts. The suit’s material softens this precision, which drapes fluidly, moving with the wearer.
It’s paired with an understated bag, practical yet undeniably luxe with its intricate monogram, a house hallmark.
Then there’s the unexpected tropical print, a burst of color and pattern that transports the wearer from the stern deck to the vibrant shores of distant islands. It adorns a lightweight jacket, the print as a visual metaphor for the collection’s spirit of adventure.
Paired with sleek shorts and casual sandals, the look is a modern take on resort wear that’s as at home in the city as it is at the seaside.
A standout piece is the varsity jacket, traditionally a symbol of youthful rebellion. The emblem on the chest hints at an elite club of style, while the contrast of black and white maintains a classic feel.
Teamed with casual shorts and white socks, the look balances high-fashion refinement with an air of approachable cool.
Each look in the collection guides the way toward a pre-fall wardrobe that’s both daring and sophisticated. With pieces that mix practicality with a dash of the unexpected, Louis Vuitton’s pre-fall 2024 collection redefines what it means to dress with nautical nods, ensuring every outfit is a journey.
