Louis Vuitton unveils an unusual capsule jeans collection
To mark the launch of Louis Vuitton’s new denim line, artistic director Kim Jones has designed a heritage capsule collection of jeans, one regular and four slim, each inspired by a trunk in the brand’s archivesand some produced in a limited run of 101 (the number of the house’s Champs-Elysées address). The jeans have undergone various unusual washes and treatments. The silver jeans (£795) made of brushed denim washed with silicone take their cue from a zinc trunk, the gold jeans (£1,360) have been sprayed gold and stonewashed, and the “croco” jeans (£1,360) have a crocodile handle detail based on a 1936 trunk. Other details include rivets in palladium and buttons with horn inlays.
