Exploration and travel are massive trends in menswear for FW13. Whether it’s space, the open sea, or the great outdoors next fall/winter you’ll have more than a fair share of looks to choose from. Kim Jones’ latest Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2013 menswear collection is journey, both literally and metaphorically. Inspired by the Himalayas, LV menswear director Kim Jones says, “A collection is often an actual journey for us; it comprises what you take with you and what you bring back both physically and mentally from the experience. his season involved travelling to the Himalayas for research and it was the mountain Kingdom of Bhutan that still had that mystery surrounding it; it was almost a fantasy idea as well as a real place. Backpacking has not ruined Bhutan – you have to be invited there – and it feels so exotic, almost from another time. It is the only place in the world where snow leopards and tigers cross paths and that is one of the reasons why the snow leopard became a chief motif in the collection.”
