For F/W10, Louis Vuitton’s menswear studio director Paul Helbers was inspired by the Vienna Wiener Werkstätte, an early 20th Century artistic movement involving Schiele, Moser and Klimt that was committed to uniting all facets of human life into one comprehensive work of art. Additionally, the group placed a great value on exquisite craftsmanship, individuality and beauty.
Accordingly, Helbers’ impeccably constructed collection centered around layering in a sharp, traditional way that recalled Austrian tailoring, where one can add or subtract a piece to transition from formal to casual. And by adding equestrian touches and utilizing a refined palette, which ranged from brown to horn to raven blue, the designer succeeded in presenting the perfect wardrobe for artists in a business world.
