The late British fashion designer and artist, Christopher Nemeth, was known for his deconstructed tailored suits, often embellished with unorthodox materials, such as rope and thread. Nemeth was also fond of incoporating elements of clothsmaking – hands, needles, thread – in his artwork, accessories, and in other mediums of his artistic expression.
Kim Jones, head honcho of Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Style, has applied Nemeth’s art to the concept of modern luxury for the fall season, creating a striking collection centering on camel hues, juxtaposing strong tailoring with relaxed shapes. A design motif mirroring ropes were a major part of the collection, featured on fall’s staple outwear, such as trench coats, parkas, sweaters and blazers.
The campaign images, shot by Alasdair McLellan and starring model David Trulik, is an intensely striking look at the fall range, further heightened by a play on shadows and colour.
