The Louis Vuitton men’s collection was shown at the Paris Tennis Club. Virgil Abloh chose travel as the theme of the show, and another source of inspiration was the essay « Stranger in the village » by writer James Baldwin: the work of the 1950s tells about the journey of an African American to a Swiss resort in the Alps, the locals of which have never seen a black one. The collection is based on long coats and raincoats, imbued with the romance of distant travel. There are also padded quilted skirts, tartan jackets and trousers, fitted suits with exotic ornaments, marble print and printed world map. The buttons of coats and jackets are shaped like airplanes and rock hammers, short-sleeved shirts with shoulder pads resemble the retro uniform of flight attendants, and some items are accompanied by the words “Tourist vs. pourist « and » The same place at the same time « .
