Louis Vuitton has released the first images of its Spring/Summer 2014 Campaign featuring Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts, known primarily for his roles in Bullhead” and “Rust and Bone.” For the campaign, the French luxury brand asked its “gentleman traveler” to pose in the great outdoors of the American Southwest, specifically Page, Arizona at the edge of the Glen Canyon Dam. Seen here with the handsome Nomade Damier Oversize Cabas North-South, shot by photographer Mikael Jansson. The entire campaign will be seen in magazines worldwide this February.
Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection is pretty much a travel themed affair -a road trip imagined from American East coast to West coast.The Men’s Bag Collection in turn features a distinctly on-the-road feel this season. A soft, roomy, luggage construction predominates, hybridized between the suitcase and the rucksack. A perforated take on the classic Damier pattern appears mainly in Caramel Nomade leather -a color theme that is (a personal favorite) transposed to key items in the outerwear collection.
Nomade Damier Oversize Cabas North-South from Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection, Measures 13.4″ x 16.9″ x 5.1″, The Nomade Damier Oversize collection features oversized bags with large laser cut rice-grain perforations on leather that gives it a see-through effect. Detailed features include top handles, removable shoulder strap, metallic hardware and suede inner lining and inner pocket. Also available in East-West edition. Bags that will surely delight connoisseurs seeking both exceptional materials and great functionality. Love.
Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Studio and Style Director Kim Jones explained the thinking behind his Spring/Summer 2014 collection this way “The collection is really about the freedom of the road and that freedom itself being luxurious. The clothing should have that do-what-you-want attitude. It’s a road trip drawing on elements of classic American culture from clothes, music to souvenirs. It’s the changing environment from city to forest to desert; that journey in a day from snow-covered mountains to cacti in the desert that you can only really seem to have in America. Like the radio you listen to as you travel through the states.”
