Louis Vuitton’s LV Escale collection tells the story of seaside holidays inspired by shibori, the age-old Japanese technique that consists in twisting and knotting fabric before dyeing it. A tie-dye vibe infuses the entire seasonal wardrobe, perfect for a laid-back summer’s day, from dusk until dawn… Three harmonies of colour compose this summery wardrobe: a gradation of deep blue, reminiscent of indigo, the traditional colour of shibori, adorns pieces along with a pastel, tie-dye palette, adding its sky blue and ne sand shades to the collection. Last but not least, a warmer pink and red variation is inspired by beetroot or madder root, traditionally used for dyeing.

These three vibrant colours feature in a comprehensive collection including ready-to-wear pieces, such as a Monogram bomber jacket or a graphic one-piece swimsuit, to summer’s must-have footwear – at mules and sandals tied around the ankle, and watches. Hats and large scarves provide perfect coverage from the breeze. It goes without saying that ne leather goods – including the Neverfull tote, Keepall, Speedy and Néo Noé – are given pride of place in this great tie-dye wave, with its fresh, easily-matched style. The gradient motif adorns the iconic bags and clutches, as waves cover sand. For this collection, the must-have Onthego tote is exclusively embroidered with a holiday destination: Mykonos, Capri, Forte dei Marmi, Okinawa, Rio de Janeiro, Hawaii, Maui or Phuket, to name just a few. In total twenty- ve cities from all over the globe appear on the bag, allowing one to choose one’s favourite spot and show it o all summer long.

The collection will be available starting March 27th in Louis Vuitton stores.
