Inspired by the story of seaside holidays, Louis Vuitton’s Escale Collection incorporates shibori – the age-old Japanese technique that consists in twisting and knotting fabric before dyeing it. The result is the creation of three vibrant harmonies of colour, including a deep indigo gradient, soft pastel and lastly, a warmer pink and red variation reminiscent of balmy beach sunsets.
The brand's homage to laid-back summer days has been reimagined in some of the French label’s most iconic fine leather goods, including the Neverfull tote, Keepall, Speedy and Néo Noé, which are all adorned with the fresh and colourful gradient motif. If there’s a beach destination that holds a special place in your heart, the must-have Onthego tote can be exclusively embroidered with one of 25 cities from across the globe, including Mykonos, Capri, Forte dei Marmi, Okinawa, Rio de Janeiro, Hawaii, Maui or Phuket, to name just a few.
As far as ready-to-wear, the Escale Collection has no shortage of options, several, which are coincidentally work-from-home friendly. Nail Friday casual chic in the Monogram Printed Parka or dress up the ultra-luxe Escale Pyjama Set with one (or all three, if you wish) of the Nanogram Hair Accessories – which will ensure you look Zoom-meeting ready in a flash!
If you’re in desperate need of a holiday-inspired pick me up, the Louis Vuitton Escale collection is sartorial escapism at its finest. There’s no need to say goodbye to summer just yet.
