It’s early days yet before Louis Vuitton’s Fall-Winter 2016 Mens collection is upon us, but a sneak peek never hurt anyone, right? And because I’ve been the studying the press kit intently for everyone’s sake here, here’s what I know.
As far as bags and SLGs go, there are 3 main pillars for the season, Monogram Illusion (shown above), Monogram Eclipse (which you’ll see later in the post) and Camouflage pieces, which I’ve already featured a couple days back.

Then there are all the accessories, and there are many, from thin neck scarves to stoles to other bits and bobs from key holders to necklaces and sunglasses. The Volez, Voguex, Voyagez brooches are love, that Trousse Toilette in Monogram Eclipse is functional and that signet ring is something that’s definitely on my own wish list.
And like I mentioned earlier, this is just a quick sneak peek, so there will definitely be more updates in the weeks to come. In case you’re wondering though, that ‘trunk’ you see in the first image is actually a tool box. More specifically, a mini tool box that comes with a shoulder sling as well.

As promised, here’s a peek at a new bag from the F/W16 collection, the Monogram Eclipse Backpack Explorer that’s part-backpack, part-tote and all butch. Butch because well, it’s definitely for the more manly amongst you, the 44 cm by 30 cm by 16 cm backpack that’s big enough for you to lug around the kitchen sink and then some. No word on the price yet, but if you prefer something ‘cleaner’, the Backpack Explorer will also come in Taiga Mat, a new take on the traditional Taiga leather that’s touted to be lighter and more matte. Haven’t seen either yet in person, so expect more updates to come.
