Louis Vuitton FW23 Mens' Collection Celebrates Never Growing Up

Tapping Colm Dillane as the brand’s first co-designer after Virgil Abloh.

Carrying late designer Virgil Abloh‘s legacy forward, Louis Vuitton unveils a new chapter, presenting its Fall/Winter 2023 collection.

Tapping KidSuper founder Colm Dillane as the first to co-design an offering following Abloh’s passing. Rosalía opened the show with a host of electric Brazilian songs, instantly setting the tone. Rather than operating on a traditional runway, the mélange of clothing appears in the domestic sphere as the runway is segmented to mimic rooms in a home. Creating a coming of age narrative, models move through a hospital room, hinting a the beginning of life, migrating to a child and teenager’s safe spaces.

Blazers are fastened with a single large button or arrive with extravagantly draped waists, standing tall with highly exaggerated shoulders and dramatic, split hemlines. A rainbow of spray painted apples bring an element of whimsy to an otherwise austere concrete gray coat. A question, “Fascination imagination?” underscores the gathering’s playful and cheeky energy. Teddy bear-textured outerwear sits alongside puffer jackets embroidered with patchwork illustrations plucked right out of an adolescent day dream.

Louis Vuitton’s FW23 display provides a master class on sartorial juxtaposition, balancing the label’s practiced sense of refinement with Dillane’s eccentric aesthetic. While some models ares are covered by Matrix-style sunglasses, suits deliver an ever-watchful gaze as a single oversized eye is screen printed onto oversized two-piece sets.The essential organ acts as a motif, offering an unblinking stare on a matching shirt-jacket. Accessories are anything but an afterthought as sumptuous gloves accent structured vests, while leather hats seemingly celebrate the Year of the Rabbit with the floppy tails.
