What do clouds, pockets and odd-shapes have in common? Well, all are featured in the handbags Louis Vuitton showed for Men’s Pre-Fall and Fall 2020. We will let you decide what works.
But first, you may be wondering, Men’s? Yes, when it comes to bags, we heartily endorse browsing both sides of the proverbial and virtual shop. Moreover, many believe handbags represent the gender neutral side (and future) of fashion.
In the past two weeks, Louis Vuitton men’s designer Virgil Abloh introduced both Pre-Fall and Fall 2020 collections. There is a continuing riff on the multi-bagging concept seen on the women’s side – showing models sporting two at a time – as well as a few petite sized bags and accessories likely coveted by men and women alike. Moreover, there were pockets, as attachments to bags. Indeed, one look was so heavily dependent on pockets, it actually skipped the bag part and attached them to the sweater.
For Fall 2020, Louis Vuitton continues with pockets, now attached to the bags.
We go from pocket to clouds (though not pockets of clouds, lol). Abloh showed a series of Louis Vuitton’s classic bags with puffy heavenly designs atop the coveted logo.
Perhaps most odd were the bags with unfamiliar shapes, whether curved or otherwise distorted. On one level it reminds us of Vuitton legacy as a trunk designer, able and willing to create a vessel for nearly any object. On the other hand…. well, you decide.
Lastly, if you’re looking to cross-over for a classic travel bag . . . this is likely our pick.
