BEAUTY: Clothing--Louis Vuitton
Kim Jones at Louis Vuitton unveiled a Spring Summer '16 collection at Paris Fashion Week that speaks to travel with the kind of sateen Japanese tour jackets GIs brought back from Asia after WWII. Such jackets elaborately embroidered with cranes and dragons were the inspiration for a collection faithful to its roots. After the sateen jackets, the cranes and dragons showed up on lightweight separates but Jones then abstracted the color palette into racing stripes and vacation-seaside stripes. The vacation notion was reinforced with a slogan on tees: "Volez Voguez Voyagez" which encourages us to "Fly Sail Travel" for the summer!
