"The collection has an element of power," says Louis Vuitton menswear designer Kim Jones. "The clothes make the man look heroic." Indeed, Jones has delivered the strongest collection for fall 2012, using materials of the utmost delicacy, such as superluxurious knits, fabrics woven with metallic thread, and rare Japanese yuki-tsumugi silk. From sharp topcoats to exceptionally tailored suits, the collection has placed Louis Vuitton in menswear’s top ranks.
