Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2014 collection was unveiled at Paris men's fashion week, showing its new culture-inspired menswear. Style director Kim Jones stated that the inspiration for the clothing came from a road trip from New Orleans to Las Vegas.

The clothing draws heavily from a classic American culture that speaks to a "do-what-you-want attitude." From bandanas peaking through the tops of collared shirts to classic letterman jackets, this line has a much more relaxed feel than previous ones.

Culture-inspired menswear goes along with the already evident trend of classic American influenced hipster styles and James Dean hairdos. Kim Jones should be congratulated for her ability to bring together a line that transcends the runway with pieces that any man can wear on the streets.
