Are you ready for a trip? Vuitton’s designer Kim Jones invites us to join him and check the new Louis Vuitton Menswear fall-winter 2012-2013 collection. You will ask: Where are we going? Kim Jones says from west to east. Our directions are Paris and Tokyo. This would be a pleasant journey as the designer proposes to wear bathrobe-like coats.

Georges Vuitton, Louis Vuitton’s son, always took inspiration from Japan. He adored Japanese floral print and paid special attention to it while he was developing the brand monogram. And of course he loved travelling. Kim also likes travelling. In another case he won’t have a second season success in the role of Vuitton’s designer. And in the new Louis Vuitton Menswear fall-winter 2012-2013 collection Kim Jones pays tribute to the Japanese culture, which gave him inspiration.

The Vuitton Menswear fall-winter 2012-2013 was named “a tale of two cities” to commemorate long and fruitful relationship between the two world capitals – Tokyo and Paris. Moreover, Jones has always respected Antonio Lopez’s art works. According to Jones, Lopez was one of the first artists who went to Japan and found out its potential and implemented it in European art. Thus Antonio Lopez’s motives can also be tracked in the Louis Vuitton Menswear fall-winter 2012-2013 collection.

The international style collection deserve this epithet: a sandy camel coat with collar of kangaroo fur, crocodile patches trench, a coat from a brand Vuitton travel blanket, astrakhan shoes, bag locks were covered in tiny leather sheaths modeled on the Chinese zodiac signs, and the most precious – silks, tissued outside capital Tokyo, according to UNESCO this place is s World Heritage Site. The wonder is also that the tissuing process requires only 20 centimeters daily. But in the Vuitton Menswear fall-winter 2012-2013 collection we see kimono shirts and even suits sewn from the textile.

Talking about the suits I can’t help mention “the replacement of the three-piece” where shirts were used like waistcoats under jackets. Some men jackets and coats from Vuitton fall-winter 2012-2013 collection had the collars color different from the suit body.

Japan fabrics, hand-painted feathers, new forms all these made Louis Vuitton Menswear fall-winter 2012-2013 collection a genuine pleasure of an eye and mind. See the whole collection below.
