The 2012 Louis Vuitton 'Cup Collection' provides an haute couture take on menswear sailing gear. The nautical shoes, windbreakers and side bags are all meant to assist seaside sporting activity, and are even designed to enhance performance.
The Cup Collection pieces offer just the right mixture of fashion and practicality. Sold in navy blue, off-white and deep-red tones, the line is certainly masculine. This shoreline style, however, is not the primary focus of the series. Instead, these Louis Vuitton goods have all been produced with salt-resistant fabrics and motion-accommodating cuts, allowing for markedly improved aquatic performances. Whether training individually or participating in a team-based competition, the Cup line will be of service to any dedicated athlete, and will at the same time make for a memorable fashion statement.
