In his first proposal for the Maison, Men’s Creative Director Pharrell Williams looks to the sun as a universal source of life: a radiance that energises, heals and unifies humans across cultures and creeds.
The Pont Neuf embodies a metaphorical bridge between Virginia and Paris. The memory of Princess Anne High School is epitomised in savoir-faire takes on the varsity jacket.

Damoflage splices the heritage Damier pattern of Louis Vuitton with camouflage in a reflection of two domains of style, paying tribute to friends in Paris.

The attitude of the dandy cuts a loosely autobiographical tailored silhouette adapted in a contemporary approach to suiting and encrusted with pearls and crystals.
A desire for comfort is captured in magnified shearling slippers in Monogram intarsia, their outsole embossed with a bear’s footprint, created to leave an impression.

Made for focus, sunglasses with caps crafted in the image of camera lenses invite the wearer to see the world through primary colour-tinted glasses.

A new adaptation of the Louis Vuitton Speedy bag conjures the attitude and hustle mentality of Canal Street in an everyday icon conceived for every walk of life.
The soundtrack is an original composition: Peace Be Still by Pharrell Williams feat. Lang Lang; Chains & Whips by Clipse; and JOY (Unspeakable) by Voices of Fire feat. Pharrell Williams.
