“Merci. Have A Vuitton Day” reads across the zip-through waterproof hoodie and t-shirt, a reflective Louis Vuitton motif that focuses on everyday routines and life. Cheerful playing card motifs and dice prints are unveiled across shirts and exciting accessories. A sense of old and new styles mixing together is undeniable in these clean finished winter pieces. The importance of versatile layering for the global traveller, is explored through the removable Monogram blanket linings and rich patch work pieces that feature a variation of textures and skins.
