As the style director for the men’s department at Louis Vuitton, Kim Jones relies on the innovative use of materials and modern, slightly edgy silhouettes to elevate the company’s menswear line. A standout this season is the ultrasophisticated ombré tuxedo (price upon request) in a lightweight wool-and-silk blend that holds its shape and shimmers slightly as the wearer moves, revealing subtle gradations of shading that shift from black to brown.
