Louis Vuitton defies Paris heatwave with cool men's collection

It may have been sweltering hot outside on the Paris streets but the stars shining at Louis Vuitton’s men’s spring/summer collection were definitely cool.

British supermodel Naomi Campbell, singer Lily Allen and rapper Tyga were among the VIPs who graced the Palais Royale.

Artistic director Kim Jones’ collection was inspired by New Zealand, Easter Island, Hawaii, and island-hopping in general.


He worked with the idea of moving between distinct islands and combining elements from different cultural identities.

Aloha shirts from Hawaii inspired prints of exotic foliage. Extreme sports from windsurfing to trekking influenced silhouettes.


And there was also a collaboration with R&B superstar Drake, who’s latest single Signs could be heard live on Instagram as the show was streamed.
