PARIS, Jan 23, 2009 / FW/ — There is a certain earnestness in the Louis Vuitton menswear Fall 2009 collection. Paul Helbers, who helms the men’s side at Louis Vuitton, sent out loose-fitting suits and jackets in blue, scarlet, slate gray and camel that are all business but there is also suaveness and sophistication.
Good looking as the suits were, the accessories easily upstaged them, especially the Louis Vuitton monogram bag cut in hexagons that is so reminiscent of a soccer ball (though the geeks among us would actually say it’s the Carbon atom).
Another accessory that took center stage is the scarlet sneakers designed by Kanye West when he was “interning” with the brand.
