Kim Jones's direction for this Louis Vuitton S/S 2014 collection is very marketable and have a sense of reality to it.  While his former boss, Marc Jacobs and Soccer superstar, David Beckham were sitting at the front row, Jones sent models in brown 1970's style brown leather jackets, preppy boys in plaids and boy scouts down the runway.  The overall look of this collection is clean, classic yet modern in which you expected from LV. This collection seems to really grabs concepts from its clienteles, the jet setters or world travelers.  The silhouettes are tall, lean but not tight. All pieces move with ease, models look comfortable in them.

The collection looks classy but not stuffy or pretentious. Actually, it looks comfortable yet playful. Grey plaid,  grey suits, and dark navy & black trousers work as base for the collection, colors come through jackets. There are tartan plaids in brighter blue on sports jackets and shorts which looks cool with new LV front chrome strip sole white sneakers. 

It is all in the details, from patches on leather jackets and pins on lapels begging you to look closer. The boy scout jackets with sewn in patches in front and back, silk varsity jackets, jeans jacket that made out of suede.

 The tie dye technique has quite luxurious look to it, dark grey with hint of red and blue. That is definitely is not Woodstock type of tie die. Other details such as crocodile patches on jacket's elbows,  inside cuffs lining on sports jackets, printed kimono silk tops. All these make you want to take a look closer to appreciate the quality and well thought out designs behind those interesting touches. 

New accessories cases in silver chrome color, new hand clutches with interesting designs, weekend bags, messenger bags, back packs, and hand carry bags with LV 's souvenir and badges weere also shown in the collection. Overall the collection works well, have great classic style and can easily be imagine it on real people. Just another great ready to wear collection from Louis Vuitton.
