Founded in 1845, Louis Vuitton has always placed travel at the core of its business, continuously driving the brand to create contemporary travel essentials while staying true to its heritage. At the height of menswear, creative director Kim Jones leads the French luxury brand to a brighter future with every season, each time creating another storytelling collection that leaves us wanting more.

Whether you’re looking for a backpack (HK$21,100) or messenger bag (HK$20,400), Louis Vuitton has you covered.

For Fall 2016, Jones found his inspiration in Paris, leaving his childhood memories behind with last season’s collection. The brand is bringing back a blast from the past, one we’ve been longing to see in every man’s wardrobe.

The monogram has been reinvented with a dark twist, focusing on grey and black tones. The Monogram Eclipse collection is centred around the Malle Courrier, taken directly from the Vuitton archives. With travel at its heart, the collection has revived the monogram — the brand’s most recognisable design —  in a sleek and stylish way.

The soft briefcase (HK$16,700), wallet (HK$4,050) and gloves (HK$6,700) will make a great addition to your wardrobe.

The fresh take on the icon will become part of the permanent leather goods collection, and it comes in a variety of styles such as duffel bags and wallets. The collection will also include an array of footwear with noteworthy combat boots and sleek sneakers. Each item has been handcrafted, with extra attention paid to details as well as the quality of leather. For coming season, we can’t think of better edgier accessories worth investing in.

We love to see the journey of the LV Monogram continuing, living on in sophisticated and luxurious essentials that help you always travel in style.
