Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2011 Menswear - The Details
As you may’ve noticed, Louis Vuitton had a ton of accessories showcased in the house’s Fall/Winter 2011 Menswear runway show in Paris. These bags are so beautiful! I wish I was a boy (cue the Beyonce) just so I could have an excuse to lust after them.

Louis Vuitton’s Menswear collection for Fall/Winter 2011 has hit the runway. The collection was led by Men’s Studio Director Paul Helbers, under the artistic direction of Marc Jacobs. The inspiration is said to be a mix of Amish refinement and David Lynch's aesthetic.
This collection is full of a lot of black, but Helbers explains this by saying, “We have gone back to cut and construction which is why this collection is almost all black to emphasize shape and technique.”
Designed by: London College of Fashion, University of Sheffield, and the University of Ulster
Product Name & Description: “Herself” is a prototypical dress sprayed with a concrete mixture that purportedly absorbs pollutants in nearby air.”
"Herself is just the first prototype in a larger project between the three universities called Catalytic Clothing. According to the Helen Storey Foundation, a London-based nonprofit that aims to bring fashion and science together and helped originally conceive of the project, Catalytic Clothing “will investigate how clothing technology can be used to engage the public in the science behind the impact that pollution has on our health.” The splotchy design on the dress, reminiscent of a butterfly or maybe Rorschach ink blots, is certainly artistic, but I’m waiting for a little more proof of the science before I send my measurements.”
The house of McQueen has always had one foot in Saville Row and the military-heritage, strong-shouldered tailoring found there, and another foot in creativity and experimentation. You get both this season: Naval-inspired coats in red and white and blue paired with high-waisted, full cut pants and long, duster-like coats. Also making an appearance are ripped shoulder seams on suit jackets, which is an interesting and edgy idea to play around with. But wait! There’s more! Like the printed shirts that have a ’70s disco feeling.
