Louis Vuitton spring-summer 2014    

Looks from the Louis Vuitton spring-summer 2014 men's runway collection

For spring and summer 2014, the Louis Vuitton man was indulging in the time-honored tradition of the West Coast American road trip, men's studio and style director Kim Jones and artistic director Marc Jacobs explained in the show notes.

The collection is really about the freedom of the road and that freedom itself being luxurious, Jones says in the notes. 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.
