Four years into his role as artistic director of Louis Vuitton men’s collections, Kim Jones delivers us into the next fall winter season with a poem of admiration to deceased artist and fashion designer Christopher Nemeth.

On a foundation of clean silhouettes, artist Christopher Nemeth’s hand rendered rope illustrations become reimagined by creative director Kim Jones of Louis Vuitton mens’ collections. Claimed by Jones as “the most important [male] designer to come out of London”, Nemeth is a undeniably relevant figure in this subculture of fashion and a focal member of The House of Beauty and Culture. His works have been exhibited in ‘Dressed to Kill: 100 Years of Fashion’ at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra in 1993 to 1994, ‘Club to Catwalk: London Fashion in the 1980s’ at The Victoria and Albert Museum, London in 2013.

Bearing in mind the house’s connection to the modern traveling connoisseur who enjoys exploration in the comfort of luxury, Jones’s travels to the Atacama desert in Peru has decorated the moving runway in an interpretation of aerial Nasamaps of South America. The clothes emerge with a sense of brand identity that can be associated to the trademark of Kim Jones –  a classic cool that pushes the boundaries in the new age of design.

The earthy palette comprising of midnight blue, grey, beige and burgundy with flashes of turquoise incorporates the traditional weaving techniques in the form of strong knitwear and outerwear. While a touch of futuristic technology that contrasted the garments of modern times were found in the ever-present 4motion sunglasses from the brand’s collection.

Timeless in even the most traditional of French fashion houses, that cool aesthetic continues to emerge in the detail of design.
