Both celebrities and the fashion elite were in attendance including David Beckham, R.E.M.ís Michael Stipe (who supplied the showís soundtrack), singers Aarif Lee and Taeyang, as well as Louis Vuittonís own Marc Jacobs.
A collection filled with grays and browns as well as an ample helping of plaids and stripes, seems caught somewhere between a weekend in the Hamptonís and a preppy 50ís schoolyard. The logo laden varsity jackets are not anything to write home about and the few pieces of paisley in this runway show seem oddly placed. While the mismatched plaid shorts and heavy jackets are spectacular pieces on their own, together they make a haberdashery of fashion that Louis Vuitton is barely able to pull off. Their bow-tie finished monochromatic suits are nothing if not high fashion in hues of rosy nude, white, and classic blacks.
The brand continuously tweeted numerous photos during the event, from both backstage and on the runway. This was the fifth Louis Vuitton collection for British designer Kim Jones, the menís style director at the famous French label.
