Louis Vuitton Pre-Spring 2023

Louis Vuitton’s diverse Ready-to-Wear selection this season, offering stand-out pieces guaranteed to break necks. As conceived by the late Menswear Creative Director, Virgil Abloh, the Men’s Fall In Love Collection and Men’s Pre-Spring 2023 Collection are the ultimate embodiment of his renowned artistry. Also from Louis Vuitton, and as designed by acclaimed Womenswear Designer, Nicolas Ghesquière, is the Women’s Cruise 2023 Collection. 

MEN’S PRE-SPRING 2023 COLLECTION Combining bold graphics, patterns, and prints, the Louis Vuitton Pre-Spring 2023 Collection explores the recurring themes of boyhood and coming-of-age, featuring oversized silhouettes, boyish shorts-suits, and vintage style varsity jackets.

MEN’S FALL IN LOVE COLLECTION Louis Vuitton’s Pre-Spring 2023 Collection “Fall In Love,” inspired by the legendary NYC loft parties of David Mancuso. Iconic DJ and music visionary, Mancuso, played music under a banner reading “Love Will Save The Day” tracing all the way back to the 1970’s. He is popularly considered the first DJ ever, a profession that Virgil Abloh believed to be akin to that of a designer– and even practiced himself. The “Fall in Love” Pre-Spring 2023 collection was conceived by Virgil and carried out by his creative teams and collaborators, where they explore how dress codes can be used to promote anti-prejudice and egalitarianism. Echoing David Mancuso’s full record sets, the “Fall In Love” collection mirrors a complete wardrobe. The new designs resemble silhouettes from the 1970’s such as wide-leg and flared trousers, snug jackets, and roll-neck tops, all with the ever present Louis Vuitton elevated approach evident throughout. 

WOMEN’S CRUISE 2023 COLLECTION This collection plays with elements. The Artistic Director chose metallic fabrics and embellishments that reflected the setting sun, some as glassy as mirrors, and other materials that offered protection from it, wrapping long swathes of linen, for example, around the head and across the body. Other pieces lifted design details from water sports; the airbrushed colors of half tops and boxy short skirts apparently came from jet skis. Ghesquière is a designer whose collections are minutely pored over and studied, and some of these gestures looked like callbacks to earlier seasons, only amplified, maximal where he used to be minimal and streamlined. The sun is the Artistic Director’s guest of honor in the Cruise 2023 collection, playing an active part in the evolution of this wardrobe where changes in temperature set a stylistic tempo. The unique light of the West Coast creates prisms across shimmering silhouettes, while a myriad of natural materials gives the illusion of a metallic palette.

LOUIS VUITTON Spring-Summer 2023 Spin-Off inside 360 MAGAZINE

Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2023 Spin-Off

Fresh off the runway in the Gobi Desert, Louis Vuitton enamored the world with their theatrical and inventive athleisure, resulting in 278 million streams.

For the Spring-Summer Men’s 2023 Spin-Off show in Aranya, China, the Maison expanded on the idea of the magnified playground first introduced in Paris in June. In a collaborative effort between Chinese directors Jia Zhangke and Wei Shujun, the cinematic show portrayed themes of childhood, discovery and community.

The story took its audiences to Aranya beach, a relic of the Ancient Silk Road, where the live show unfolded in a vast sandscape, representing the infinite possibilities of craftsmanship. Live-scored by the Beijing-based instrumental band Sleeping Dogs, the show featured a performance choreographed by dancer Hou Ying.

‘Collection ∞’ Aranya, September 2022: 

Aranya

There are as many grains of sand on our planet as there are stars in the galaxy. Yet in the eyes of a child, the vastness of sand never poses an impossibility. It invites opportunity. In the sandbox and on the beach, children instinctively build sandcastles: constructs of the imagination that turn dreams into reality. For the Spring-Summer 2023 Spin-Off show in Aranya – designed by the Louis Vuitton Studio Prêt-à-Porter Homme – the Maison expands on the idea of the magnified playground first introduced in Paris in June. A cinematic prelude titled Mirage created in a collaborative effort between Chinese directors Jia Zhangke (producer of the prelude) and Wei Shujun (director of the prelude) – who also serve as directors of the show itself – portrays themes of childhood, discovery and community. Shot in the city of Dunhuang, on the edge of the Gobi Desert – once a frontier garrison on the Silk Road – the film stages a contemporary meeting between East and West reflected in the poetry of history. The story takes its audiences to Aranya beach where the live show unfolds in a sandscape moulded with the tools at the root of a collection founded in the infinite possibilities of craftsmanship. Live-scored by the Beijing-based instrumental band Sleeping Dogs, the show features a performance choreographed by the Chinese dancer Hou Ying.

Collection ∞

Imagination is at the heart of Louis Vuitton. A visual manifestation of our hopes and ideas, it has the power to heal, regenerate and uplift us. The Spring-Summer 2023 Men’s Collection was conceived and created by the Louis Vuitton Studio Prêt-à-Porter Homme: an ever-evolving ecosystem of creative minds, who welcomed Virgil Abloh to the Maison in 2018 and expanded during his eight seasons of artistic direction. A living testament to his talent for bringing people together, they populate a creative playground more than a century in the making. At the timeless core of the Louis Vuitton studio is the belief that imagination – creatorship, craftsmanship, showmanship – can move and unite its spectators around the world. It’s the heritage on which Virgil Abloh based his practice at the Maison and the philosophy that continues to drive the Studio Prêt-à-Porter Homme. As a creative community who shared a monumental experience, they embrace the Spring-Summer 2023 Men’s Collection as a cathartic process: a proposal created in the spirit of all the human minds that shape Louis Vuitton.

Magnified playground

Toys are tools for the imagination. The playthings we are given early in life become building blocks for dreams and aspirations. In the Carré du Louvre in June 2022, the Louis Vuitton Studio Prêt-à-Porter Homme imagined a magnified playground. Here, a giant children’s toy racetrack became a Yellow-Brick Road for the imagination: an evolutionary path for the mind where childlike fantasies come to life. It’s a transition from naïve to refined reflected in a collection that elevates the symbols of childhood through the savoir-faire of the Maison. The premise cuts a silhouette drawn from swoopy lines, which plays with shrunken and oversized dimensions founded in the idea of a wardrobe grown-into or outgrown, with rootsy nods to the 1990s dress code of the skater community. Iconography native to the playground adorns garments and accessories: origami paper planes, building block beading, playdough textures and tones, cartoon prints, and sandbox tool embellishments. Evoked within the pieces is an under-construction sensibility inherent to the toys found in a playground and to the process of growing.

Parade for the mind

Pageantry courses through the veins of Louis Vuitton. Over time, the custodians of the Maison have employed displays of wonderment to inspire unifying feelings of joy in its diverse audiences around the globe. On the magnified toy racetrack of the Spring-Summer 2023 Men’s Show in Paris in June, a parade of childhood dreams unfolded led by The Marching 100, the Tallahassee-based marching band of the Florida A&M University formed in 1946. Flags filled the space – their motifs reflective of the Louis Vuitton codes and values – as a representation of global communities created beyond borders and diversities. Elated by music, the soundtrack of the parade fused with the clothes themselves: two SpeakerMan looks integrated a number of wireless loudspeakers into backpacks, which connected to the show’s sound system. The constructions portrayed the togetherness of sound and the harmonious properties of speaker culture, while echoing the shared appreciation for loud music that exists within the Louis Vuitton Studio Prêt-à-Porter Homme – where every corner is occupied by a speaker.

French romanticism

A quintessential component in the genetics of Louis Vuitton, French romanticism fills the collection. Flower fields – the eternal image of harmony in diversity – grace garments through impressionist paintings transformed into tapestries and prints, while depictions of thistles appear in multiple fabric weaves, prints and embroideries. A symbol of resilience and healing folklorically used to overcome difficult situations, the prickly flower motifs also nod to the decor of Louis Vuitton’s ancestral home in Asnières where thistles often appear in bouquets. The delicate floral paintings found in the ceilings of the same residence echo the cornices that define the palatial interiors of Parisian architecture. A manifestation of our childhood dreams – fairy tales, majesty, whimsy – these moulures ornament moulded leather tailoring and bags, and feature in delicate lace garments. As a tribute to Paris, a photo montage collaging elements from the city and the Maison – the Pont Neuf, the Damier pattern, the cornices of interiors – runs through the collection.

Arts and crafts

The impulse to turn imagination into creation begins with the instruments of our childhood: toys, building blocks and the tools of the sandbox. As we grow and refine, so do the devices that bring our ideas to life. Through the savoir-faire integral to Louis Vuitton, the collection reflects on this transition in figurative and literal ways. Children’s building blocks and playdough elements adorn garments and accessories, while toolbox components – such as scissors, tweezers and clamps – embellish garments as three-dimensional embroidered pendants. The motifs celebrate the expert ateliers of the Maison, and serve as symbols of the painstaking savoir-faire that makes up the collection, from the development of fabrics to hand-embroideries, hand-beading, hand-crocheting, Shiburi tie-dye, and intricate leather moulding, as well as technological ingenuity like static electricity fabrics and SpeakerMan backpacks composed of genuine and 3D-printed loudspeakers.

HARLEM’S FASHION ROW

Harlem’s Fashion Row (HFR) announced today that the highly anticipated 15th Anniversary Fashion Show & Style Awards will open New York Fashion Week on September 6 in partnership with LVMH in North America.

With this year’s theme “Future’s Past,” the event will showcase fashion’s future fueled by the untold history of countless contributions, sacrifices, and innovations in fashion that inspire HFR to explore groundbreaking collaborations and to elevate black-owned brands. This special anniversary event will support further progress for diversity, equality and inclusion in the fashion world.

Additionally, HFR will introduce a newly created award in honor of the late Virgil Abloh, which will be given by his wife, Shannon Abloh. Honoring Virgil’s memory and lasting impact, the award celebrates like-minded individuals who embody Virgil’s spirit, brilliance, and vision, through invaluable contributions to culture, community, and innovation. This year’s award categories and recipients include: 

  • The Virgil Abloh Award presented by LVMH: Issa Rae – Actress, Writer and Producer
  • Designer of the Year: Sergio Hudson – Luxury Women’s Wear Designer
  • Editor of the Year: Robin Givhan – Fashion Editor and Pulitzer Prize Winning Writer
  • Stylist of the Year: Ade Samuel – Celebrity Stylist
  • ICON of the Year Award: Janet Jackson – Actress, Singer, Songwriter, Author, Businesswoman and Philanthropist

Brandice Daniel, CEO & Founder of Harlem’s Fashion Row, states: “African Americans have a rich history in fashion, although much of their contributions have been buried or unrecognized in history. However, HFR would not exist without the work of Black designers like Lois Alexander Lane, who created the Harlem Institute of Fashion and the Black Fashion Museum. We also would not exist without the work of other sartorial pioneers like Ann Lowe, Elizabeth Keckley, and Eunice Johnson. We are moving into the future by reaching back to understand, honor, and pull strength from our past.”

Through an ongoing partnership with HFR, LVMH continues its commitment to work toward a more diverse, equitable and inclusive fashion industry. Several brands from the LVMH portfolio will join in celebrating the next generation of diverse fashion talent by supporting various aspects of the Fashion Show & Style Awards throughout the evening:

  • Sephora will provide runway hair products from black-owned brands that are also part of the 15% Pledge program created by Aurora James.
  • Dior Beauty will support with sponsorship of all skincare, makeup and artistry teams.
  • Tiffany & Co. will present gifts to Style Award Honorees and designers during the event.
  • Moët Hennessy USA will provide the perfect drink of choice for cocktail hour, Chandon Garden Spritz, — providing a delicious balance between sweetness and bitterness with exceptional sparkling wine and bitter-orange liqueur, handcrafted with handpicked and ripe Valencia oranges, herbs and spices.

“As LVMH looks to the future of our Group and Maisons through the lens of diversity, equity and inclusion, we are thrilled to partner with Harlem’s Fashion Row on their 15th anniversary celebration, and to cast a spotlight on the cultural richness and creativity of the Harlem community”, said Anish Melwani, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton Inc. “The success of LVMH’s Maisons stems from their ability to reveal creative talents from across the world and we are excited to support the New York Fashion Week debut of three talented BIPOC designers from our neighboring community of Harlem.”

Three BIPOC designers will showcase their latest collections in the show:

  • Clarence Ruth (Menswear): Cotte D’Armes is a high-end men’s and women’s ready-to-wear denim brand in New York City. Ruth was the winner of the Tommy Hilfiger X Harlem’s Fashion Row Design Competition.
  • Johnathon Hayden (Sustainable Women’s Wear): Showcasing his brand Deus Ex Machina, Hayden creates ready-to-wear separates that bridge the gap between luxury and longevity.
  • Nicole Benefield (Women’s Wear): Self-titled responsible brand Nicole Benefield fathoms form over fast fashion trends, casual wearability over exclusivity, and eco-friendly fabrics above the latter.

Maharishi x Reebok

Reebok and London-based streetwear label Maharishi announce their first collaboration, bringing Maharishi’s military design ethos to Reebok’s heritage-inspired Classic Leather Legacy AZ (GW4452, $150), available beginning June 10.

Founded in 1994 by Hardy Blechman, Maharishi is defined by its ‘pacifist military design’ aesthetic and focus on deploying products that are practical, long-lasting, and offer an unforgettable presence. For their first collaboration with fellow UK brand Reebok, Maharishi have applied this approach uniquely to the Classic Leather Legacy AZ, a modern interpretation of Reebok’s timeless Classic Leather running shoe inspired by the archival Aztec II and adapted with contemporary shaping and material application.

“The Classic Leather Legacy AZ looks futurist and modern whilst retaining what makes it an iconic shoe,” commented Maharishi. “A big part of our design ethos is exploring duality, so this shoe – being a design classic infused with ultra-modern sensibility – fits well.”

The sneaker draws inspiration from United States military flight suits and uniforms, featuring a nylon construction based on historic military jackets, contrasting black ripstop panels in reference to the olive/black patch insignia used on traditional camouflage uniforms, and 3M reflective highlights for added visibility seated atop the iconic Reebok gum sole.

Regarding the collection, Abloh explained, “My philosophy is very much informed by the clothes that people actually wear. What I do is an analysis of a generation: what do people buy and why do they wear it? That question naturally creates an equal interest in tradition as it does in changing tradition. But it’s also about challenging myself and exploring different land. That is creative freedom.”

JEFFREY DEITCH PRESENTS SHATTERED GLASS OPENING 

Shattered Glass, the acclaimed exhibition of new art by emerging artists of color, which was shown at Jeffrey Deitch Los Angeles last spring, is being presented in an expanded version in the Moore Building in the Miami Design District.

The participating artists are all strongly socially engaged; many of whom incorporate powerful social messages into their work. The exhibition represents a remarkable new generation that connects with a new art audience. Jeffrey Deitch has been presenting exhibitions and public art projects in the Miami Design District since 2002.

DAVID CASTILLO EXHIBITION PREVIEW OF “YOU SHOULD HAVE NEVER CROSSED THE RIO GRANDE,” A SOLO EXHIBITION OF FABRIC PAINTINGS AND ASSEMBLAGES BY PEPE MAR

David Castillo presents You Should Have Never Crossed the Rio Grande, a solo exhibition of fabric paintings and assemblages by Pepe Mar. The artist’s own experience of migration from Mexico to the United States serves as a stage through which he explores the current conditions of his own practice and of the country that he now calls home. He considers how migratory experiences have shaped the nation, and—by extension—how they have come to influence his own work in a city like Miami, where visual culture is inflected by a diversity of diasporas. And through the various pieces on view in the exhibition, Mar asks a compelling question: “How would my life and practice have developed had I stayed in Mexico?”

HVN – ALL GIRLS GO TO HEAVEN

Houston rapper and creative HVN releases his brand new EP, ALL GIRLS GO TO HEAVEN overnight. ALL GIRLS GO TO HEAVEN is a stacked project featuring eight head swivelling tracks that contemplates the young artist’s troubled past while wrestling with the future ahead. Tracks like “HELLSCAT” and “HISNEYLAND” hits hard teetering on digicore sounds and glitchy production value while HVN comes off philosophical on “MARINE” and “SIMPLE”; which comes paired with an incredible electric guitar outro. For a full tracklisting, see below, and to listen to the project, click HERE.

The new EP is a play on the artist’s own name and the follow up to his debut project Welcome to Heaven (2020) which spawned breakout hit “Backhand.” Earlier this year, HVN came hot and heavy with single “Draco” as well as a fiery feature on “Smoke” off of Don Toliver’s Life Of A Don alongside SoFaygo. The young artist who has received cosigns from Virgil Abloh, Kevin Abstract, Taco Bennett has also been spotlighted as an ‘artist to watch’ by the likes of Rolling Stone, Pigeons & Planes, Houston Chronicle, Hypebeast and more, further establishing himself as a creative force coming out of Houston.

About HVN

Houston, TX rapper HVN’s story revolves around persistence. The multi-faceted creative started his burgeoning career with a clothing brand at 15 years old spurred on by a six-month recovery period in hospital after suffering a stroke due to his sickle cell disease. HVN couldn’t walk, talk, eat, or go to the bathroom himself, and was stuck in a hospital bed where he planned up the ‘Don’t Die’ brand. In the years to come, ‘Don’t Die’ grew from a clothing label into a catalyst for the music and fashion scenes in Houston, hosting parties and live performances for independent artists who couldn’t find venues to perform their music. 

In late 2019, HVN decided to make a project of his own after years of being in the studio with friends, freestyling for fun and watching them create. These early sessions eventually formed his 2020 debut project, Welcome to HVN. The 7-song album—led by standout cut, “Backhand”—made an immediate impact. The response pushed HVN to take music more seriously and was followed up by the November 2020 single “Demon,” featuring a Trey Lyons directed music video with a cameo from Taco Bennett. He is now signed to Field Trip Recordings/Interscope Records.

BTS × LOUIS VUITTON

BTS Generates Millions of Impressions for New Louis Vuitton Collection, K-Pop Stars Have Become Fashion’s Most Powerful Influencers

Louis Vuitton’s new partnership with K-Pop superstars BTS proves the band has a monumental impact on every brand they touch. Louis Vuitton designer Virgil Ablog surprised the world this morning with the release of a spin-off fashion walk film named “Hope,” dedicated to his fall/winter 2021 menswear collection modeled by the world’s biggest boyband. Earlier this year, BTS became LV house ambassadors and have been advocating for the monogrammed pieces ever since.

The film marks their first big showcase for the brand. Directed by Jeon Gowoon and Park Syeyoung, each member presents a new look designed by Abloh as they navigate through an industrial space filled with Vuitton models, and a seemingly endless maze of staircases. Because this is their first official high-fashion collaboration (previously only with athletic brands such as Puma and Fila), the BTS fanbase ARMY was absolutely geeking out on Twitter.

Thanks to their appearance in Louis Vuitton’s #LVMenFW21 fashion show in Seoul, where members of the group modelled the new collection, social media posts featuring BTS accounted for 9 of the top 10 most engaged fashion-related posts in the past week. BTS-related LV posts generated 5M interactions for the brand in just 7 days, compared to less than 400K mentions for all non-BTS mentions of LV in the same period.

Not to mention, with their ever-growing popularity; BTS bounds onto the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart at #1 with their new single “Permission to Dance.” The boyband supplants itself at the top spot, as their previous single “Butter” falls to #7 after seven consecutive weeks at #1.

The dominant influence of K-Pop is just one of many surprising trends that has changed the way consumers engage with fashion and beauty brands over the past year. The latest Fashion & Beauty Industry Report from consumer intelligence platform, Talkwalker, reveals how apparel and cosmetics brands are adapting to the latest changes in post-pandemic consumer behavior, from the rise of athleisure culture to the resilience of makeup tutorials as a content cornerstone even during the work-from-home era.

Whether people are working from home or in the office, how they look and feel remains a consistent topic of online conversation. What’s changed is who people look to for their sense of style and self,” said Todd Grossman, CEO of Talkwalker Americas. “K-Pop stars like BTS have shown a tremendous ability to excite fans to engage with brands on a seismic level, bringing far more attention to a legacy brand than it could otherwise generate on its own.
