You’ve seen the bags (well some of them anyway), so now here are the rest of the pieces that will be launched soon from the Fall-Winter 2010 Mens Louis Vuitton collection. Themed ‘Bleisure’ (a blend of business and leisure), Paul Helbers drew influences from artists including Franz Kafka and Egon Schiele and the general surrounds, life and architecture of early 20th century Vienna.
Take for example these cashmere Etole Vienna stoles, an ode to Vienna’s artistic leanings.
Another gorgeous stole (Echarpe Arty), and deco inspired cufflinks which expound the ways one travels, be it by sea, by train, by car and by air.
Other pieces in the collection include new variations of the Modulo wallet in Damier Ebene, originally released last year in Damier Graphite. Another essential for today’s man, key rings in various designs.
Something I thought was rather unnecessary was this: the etched name card case that reminds me of those you can get at Muji for under SGD10 sans the logo.
And before I sign off, an interesting Epi piece that I spotted in the press kit. Unlike runway collections Shako, Brisko and Monogram Macassar which are more ‘showy’, the new Louis Vuitton Epi Bassano GM is clearly made for the conservative businessman who wants a briefcase that’s smart, sensible and discreet.
