Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring 2011 Runway Bags

In one word: utilitarian. With a head trip theme underlying the spring men’s collection, Louis Vuitton’s men’s studio director Paul Helbers, under the auspices of Marc Jacobs, channeled what he described as “a rhapsody of three virtual scenarios for a digital bohemian, a man who travels the world from behind his computer screen.” That translated … Continue reading Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring 2011 Runway Bags
