Menswear is given a seaside theme in the Louis Vuitton Pre-Spring 2012 Collection.

The first impression given by this pre-spring offering from the luxury house is one of tasteful vacation attire. The man of this season is one that reclines seaside chez the French Riviera in an orange all gingham getup. The array of sports jackets, trousers and shorts in lavish whites tells a tale of put together vacationer.

The palette is opulent with sanguine crimsons, rusty oranges and peacock blues. These translate into the leather accessories that harmonize with the amazing loafers, deck shoes and topsiders. The relaxed feel of the garments and accompanying leather goods works well with the brand's aesthetic of poetic luxury.
