Digital elegance with a touch of craftmanship. Ethnic references (in particular to Chile) coexist with a traditional classicism in a perfect balance between fashion and formal wear; the preference for soft fabrics prevails over the technological treatments in sportswear too. Accessories, among the most interesting seen on f/w 2014 catwalks, pass from beige/brown shades to silver, creating a futuristic effect in design as well as from an aesthetic point of view. The new-life of Louis Vuitton, designed by Kim Jones: one of his best collections for the French brand. Maybe it’s the most beautiful ever.”The idea was to mix very refined fabrics and treatments with the concept of digital journey, a new era of moving, of not being ever in the same place” says the designer. The show thrilled me because, differently from the past, it revealed a desire of real elegance, result of an exemplary alchemy between good taste and avantgarde. “True to savoir fare tradition of our ateliers, in every garment there’s a high concentration of craftmanship, but new processes and technologies play an important role. I didn’t want to create something too rough or nostalgic. It had to be at the same time technic and modern”.
