The Louis Vuitton autumn winter 2020 2021 men’s fashion collection, designed by Virgil Abloh, presented at Paris Fashion Week, is inspired by René Magritte, his dreamy and surreal art.
The clouds that break the blue of the sky in which long-limbed and dreamy men move with their faces often covered by large sunglasses with mirrored lenses, can not be missing, as if to reflect the magnificent choreography.
On the catwalk there is a collection made of very precise tailoring proportions and classic looks. A very different style compared to the oversize volumes and the luxury streetstyle that Virgil Abloh has accustomed us to.
There are two must-haves: the ruffles, which we find adorning the sleeves and bibs of shirts, the outer edges of coats and sashes that tighten the waist of cigarette trousers. The other is the cut, slicing in some outerwear, which reveals the color of what is worn underneath.
The final looks are an absolute homage to the world represented in René Magritte’s paintings, as his canvases tell of a possible future, where technology and tradition, essentiality and classicism tell the story of today’s man.
The shoes proposed in the lace-up version and moccasins, designed on the model of sneakers, are interesting. Bags for small and large trips are more structured.
The color palette is all on the cold shades of cyan, broken by black, which is often also total, and by a very rigorous fuchsia.
