Louis Vuitton Seven-Piece Icons Collection

Louis Vuitton is set to release a seven-piece ‘Icons’ collection in December. According to the press release it’s a collection that revisits tradition to refine the rules of modern dressing. Seven perfect pieces, flawlessly crafted from the finest fabrics, subtly signed and exquisitely detailed. In short, the LV ABC of style!

‘Icons’ collection includes classics like a mac coat with Stephen Sprouse-printed lining, red cardigan, a pair of 5-pocket jeans, & a parka. It also has a piece called “The Essential Travel Suit” which looks more like a track suit, and a skin-tight leather “treggings.”

Who/what is an icon?

An icon is universal. Speaking a language all its own, it is instantly understood at the four corners of the globe.

An icon is timeless. Just as it crosses continents, so too it travels through time. While it may on occasion nod to passing trends, it enjoys the luxury of a longer vision.

An icon is versatile. Dressed up or down, it is the perfect companion for all seasons, all occasions, all situations.

An icon is individual. Though its own style is immutable, it effortlessly adapts to every personality. Which is why, worn by different women, an icon will never look the same.

Louis Vuitton transforms a staple of bad-boy style into an icon of luxurious femininity. To the rugged sex appeal of the classic perfecto, this design opposes the refinement of naturally grained leather, enhanced by eloquent details like multiple zippers and padded sleeves. The sleeves, indeed, can be unzipped altogether, further increasing the versatility of this go-anywhere piece.

Seasoned voyageuses love its luxe fusion of silk and cashmere, so feminine, so supple and so lightweight. They appreciate the ease of the sweatshirt’s two-way zipper, the snug protection of its hood, the comfort of the pants’ drawstring waist – deliberate concessions to contemporary sportswear. On a long-haul flight, or simply on a leisurely weekend, this is the essence of effortless elegance.

Louis Vuitton’s timeless 5-pocket version has it all: a universally flattering fit, a hint of stretch for comfort, and a deep, dark dye that won’t wash out. Dress them up, and they’ll grace the most elegant occasions. Dress them down, and their style speaks for itself. An icon among icons, and the hardest-working item in any woman’s wardrobe.

The ultimate combination of tradition and modernity. Authentic Mackintosh fabric, invented in inclement Scotland – where else? – by chemist Charles Macintosh in 1823, is cut into the perfect double-breasted shape, at once long enough to cover and short enough to swing. The inimitable Louis Vuitton touch? The legendary Stephen Sprouse leopard print, revealed in a fleeting glimpse of the interior or the nonchalant turn-up of a sleeve. Supremely functional, eternally fashionable.

Worn by the Nenets people of Northern Russia, the parka – originally meaning animal skin – has travelled far from these cold and distant climes. Via expeditions and military campaigns, it became, on the backs of London mods, an icon of subculture. Louis Vuitton’s version adopts the silken sheen and featherweight feel of nylon taffeta, making it the lightest and most luxurious of cover-ups for day or night, spring or fall. Its sporty details – the hood, the drawstring waist, the diagonal zippered pockets – and androgynous allure are the perfect foil for modern femininity.

Seasoned voyageuses love its luxe fusion of silk and cashmere, so feminine, so supple and so lightweight. They appreciate the ease of the sweatshirt’s two-way zipper, the snug protection of its hood, the comfort of the pants’ drawstring waist – deliberate concessions to contemporary sportswear. On a long-haul flight, or simply on a leisurely weekend, this is the essence of effortless elegance.

The apparent simplicity of this sensual second skin belies the complexity of its supremely flattering, leg-lengthening design. The finest, supplest stretch leather, a testament to Louis Vuitton’s savoirfaire, sets unprecedented standards of comfort – an essential prerequisite for the sassy, sexy girl about town.
