DIGITAL BOHEMIAN by Louis Vuitton *Exclusive*

Louis Vuitton has gone on a head trip for Spring 2011. “It’s a rhapsody of three virtual scenarios for a digital bohemian, a man who travels the world from behind his computer screen ”

Amazon skydiving inspires the collection’s army issue parachute constructions and lightweight silks.

Layered leopard prints provide jungle camouflage, and from China there’s quilting, Classic patterns and animal signs from the Chinese zodiac (interpreted byNew York superstar tattoo artist Scott Campbell) come to embellish the ensemble.

Materials for this go everywhere collection mix technical nylons, elegant silks, soft, washed sea island cottons and linens lightly coated or chintzed to wrinkle just slightly. Technical nylon is roughed up in weathered prints for sun- distressed parkas, textured in a silk blend taffeta weave for an ultra-light trench, or dressed up in the LV digitalized monogram floral for a jacket that’s still unfussy.

And silk is washed, quilted and seersuckered for new textural
dimension. Leathers go exotic from faded blue python for the body tracing parachute jacket to heavy grain bison leather with a rhino or elephant hide look.

Exotic and earthy colors cross the rain forest to Shanghai from lava to smoke pearl, chartreuse, amber, parakeet green
and chocolatechip.
