Louis Vuitton's Spring Collection Takes Athleisure to the Next Level

Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2018 collection is an alpine-inspired luxury range.

Many of the pieces feature mountain climbing-inspired details like functional carabiners and nylon rope or strap accents. The color palette is rooted in Louis Vuitton's classic canvas monogram print – but vibrant blue, yellow and red accents give the luggage pieces a more sporty vibe. One canvas pouch bag has a lanyard attached and layered over the zipper. This serves as an added performance feature as well as a stylistic decision. Metallic utility buckles and matching sunglasses are direct references to climbing culture.

Louis Vuitton's creative director Kim Jones cites a recent trip to Hawaii as the inspiration behind this collection. These smaller accessories are great ways of bringing the middle class into the fold as a luxury consumer. The smaller accessories in this alpine-inspired luxury collection are great options for budget-conscious consumers looking to own a bold fashion accessory.
