Collaboration is at the heart of Louis Vuitton, inherent in its DNA, and this Men’s season furthers the spirit of connectivity, proving that it is the catalyst for creativity. With a new creative director yet to be named following the untimely and industry-shattering passing of creative genius Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton announced earlier this month that its Men’s Fall 2023 collection would be guest-designed for the first time in brand history, and last week, it arrived.

The Maison tapped Colm Dillane, founder of the experimental streetwear label KidSuper, to design the collection, which draws on the formative moments of boyhood. Filmmakers Michel and Olivier Gondry constructed an intricate set for the presentation, showcasing various moments of a boy’s childhood, all inspired by their own memories.

An Ode to the Digital Age

The collection itself focuses on human connection and how the first generation raised on the internet grew up, with each piece revolving around the idea of our collective interconnectedness. There’s also the thought that because of our hyper-focus on being connected 24/7, we leave imprints in life, whether digital, physical, or emotional. This is showcased in computerized motifs throughout the collection.

Further odes to the digital age are expressed in the bags that walked the runway, like an intricate reimagination of the classic Keepall, which features structured fragments of leather that are printed with scans from real letters in varying languages. The collection also explored the age of connectivity through film, with camera bags that filmed their surroundings as they were toted on the runway by the models. Classic shapes are remade, fusing our modern world with House history, and marking a new era for Louis Vuitton. View bags from the runway below, images courtesy of Louis Vuitton.

Maybe LV should try marketing the mens’ bags to women. Not sure who their audience is for these designs, but I’m guessing it’s not straight men. The runway outfits are horrid sendups of catwalk fashion. WHY do designers bother when they know they’ll have to remove 90% of those design elements in order to market to retail?

Gendered dressing is thankfully on the outs. I’m female but buy the Men’s LV bags and know men both queer and cis that would wear them too. Fashion should be fun, the idea that hetero normative gendered people should dress a certain way has always been restrictive and ridiculous. Who made the rules up anyway?

Cis is extremely phobic and offensive.

Here we go with the narrow-minded comments. What does a person’s sexuality or gender identity have to do with what they love to wear and how they want to present themselves in the world?

My husband bought two new men’s LV bags in the last three months and is happy with them both (he also has two other LV bags bought a couple of years ago). I showed him these; he said “WHAT are they thinking?” He sees no appeal in them at all. Nor do I.

This is just runway. As usual, 99% of the collection will be much more conservative designs. It’s been like this since the MJ days.

There are some interesting bags. Especially metal treated like Speedy but not sure how long does this material last or how it will aged.
Clothes? Looks like more theatre style costume design rather than wearable piece.
They will chose a person not us to chose them. Lol
