For the Spring/Summer ’21 men’s collection, Louis Vuitton has conceived the iconic house bags — the Louis Vuitton Keepall and the Steamer — in an xs variation to convey a fresh conception of a free life and tradition. The maison’s nomadic tradition is translated through the versatile fashion statements that contain enough space for men’s essentials, and can be worn slung over the shoulder or held in the hand. The characters created by Virgil Abloh, Zoooom and his friends — in three-dimensional knitted version or embroidered badges on canvas — found on the miniature bags make the ideal accompaniment for all kinds of journey from day to night.
Pictured above: The Louis Vuitton Keepall XS LV Friends Monogram Macassar is guaranteed to melt even the most stoic of hearts: a twee monkey clasping onto it.
The Louis Vuitton Steamer XS Distorted Damier is inspired by Jamaican Ska music of the 1950s: the new distorted damier print bringing to mind the thumping bass lines and jagged riffs of the genre.
In a more simple pattern, the Louis Vuitton Keepall XS Distorted Damier comes in a mini trunk size too: eliminating the frills and potential spills of locaiton to location travelling.
Proof that pleasure is in the smallest details: the Louis Vuitton Keepall XS LV Friends Monogram Macassar has a twee applique of a character from Zoooom and his friends.
