Rajasthan, the land of kings in the northwestern corner of India, inspires Louis Vuitton in an exploration of the origins of menswear, offering a timeless look of true sophistication.

    “While last season’s collection was about looking down at the earth from above, this time we’re looking up at the stars,” says Kim Jones, Men’s Style Director.

    While travelling in Rajasthan Jones discovered Sawai Jai Singh, the king who built Jaipur, India’s pink city, and constructed its fantastic Jantar Mantar astronomical observatory gardens in the early 18th century, that inspired the set design behind the fashion show.

    From Jaipur and the palaces of the lake cities of Udaipur to Ranthambore, the former hunting grounds of the maharajas of Jaipur, and the Taj Mahal at Agra, a vision of contemporary and eternal India, which predates European traditions and spans over five to six hundred years, has been remixed by Louis Vuitton into a glamorous blend of sophisticated embellished fabrics, smart military tailoring and inventive sport style.

    For the launch of the new V Line leather good collection, Louis Vuitton calls upon pro skater Alex Olson in this new film.

    To express the versatility of this new leather good signature, Louis Vuitton called on creative personalities and artists, always on the edge, exploring their respective fields revolving around lifestyle & art.

    At the intersection of visual art and skate, Alex Olson personifies movement in every aspect of his life. A pro-skater, he enriches the world of skating by creating multiple artistic experiences, turning the city into his own playground.

    Alex seems to perfectly embody the perpetual movement implied by city nomadism,  the urban rhythm echoing the V Line collection: flexible and adaptable shapes, exterior zip pocket, interior compartments, removable strap, versatile design… A collection of ingenious lightweight bags to carry - with style - all the essentials of a life in motion.

    A collection of iconic symbols with universal power, the Monogram adds talismanic quality to a jewellery collection, creating scintillating pieces as captivating as the stars.

    Symbolizing Fortune, the first motif is the four-point star. Stars and flowers with four petals are notably seen in Egyptian art of the IV century. A fortunate apparition, the star shines through the dark… a fixed point in the universe guiding us to our destiny.

    The second motif is a four-petal flower symbolizing Joy. The flower sits inside a perfect circle, signifying protection and the absolute. Used in medieval architecture of the XI and XIV centuries, like a sun, the four-petal flower exudes a luminous aura of joy.

    The final motif is the four-point star inside a diamond, symbolizing Passion. Like the ‘mon’ of Japanese XI century tradition - an emblem that identified lineage - it is a symbol of union. The star inside the diamond is the ultimate symbol of passionate love.
