Louis Vuitton men’s artistic director Kim Jones took the label back to Africa for its spring-summer 2017 men’s collection. Taking an urban safari, themes of the rugged outdoors were juxtaposed with a chic modern sensibility. Approaching the season, leather and patterns took up the driver’s seat but somehow Jones managed a balanced hand, exciting but not provoking.

Talking about his latest collection for Louis Vuitton, Jones shared, “There’s always something a little London hidden somewhere, though. This time it is the influence of Punk–albeit via Africa, where Frank Marshall’s Renegades portrait series of Botswana biker gangs in heavy leather depicts the fusion of two disparate aesthetics.” The designer continues, “Add a third, the French elegance of Louis Vuitton.”

Interweaving a smart mix of themes, collection’s prints carried a natural ease. Chevron patterns and the Louis Vuitton monogram dressed belted coats, short jackets and covetable bags. Joining the mix, checks were revisited in a grounded color palette, contrasted against animal prints. In addition to wildlife graphics that featured giraffes, Louis Vuitton also charmed with statement sweaters that boasted oversized prints. From two pocket shirts and tailored shorts to bomber jackets, the French fashion house delivered a lineup of irresistible ready to wear.
