Paris – Africa, as the home of modern civilisation, is the inspiration for Louis Vuitton’s Spring-Summer 2017 collection. It is also a metaphor – of a return to roots, to heritage, to formative influences, to the blueprint. Asserting your identity.
These themes are explored literally and figuratively. Africa is constantly present, a heartbeat under the collection, combined with the rebellion of London Punk and the emblematic savoir-faire of the Maison.
By its very nature, the journey between these different destinations and influences evokes the spirit of travel, which is the very essence – the blueprint – of Louis Vuitton.
