From the sleek Louis Vuitton backpack and new Gucci watch to Off White x Undercover t-shirt , here’s everything that Men’s Folio editors and staffers are loving this month.
Louis Vuitton Backpack
This Soft Trunk Backpack by the artistic director of Louis Vuitton Virgil Abloh fuses the silhouette of a suitcase with the functionality of a backpack. Fashioned from matte-black Taiga leather and signed with the rainbow X, it’s reminiscent of the Maison’s heritage as trunk makers with elements such as the rivets and reinforced corners. The adjustable leather shoulder straps can be detached and allowes the bag can be carried by hand thanks to its top handle.
There are two new quartz watches added to the Gucci G-Timeless family – and one of which is this beauty. Displaying a high level of attention to detail while reflecting the Maison’s wide-ranging product categories, the watch features a 42mm steel case and a mesh-pattern dial exhibiting the green-red-green Gucci Web pattern, which run all the way onto the steel mesh bracelet to form a continuous, 360-degree effect.
Off White x Undercover T-shirt
Before Facebook and Instagram, people expressed themselves through their graphic tees. And it isn’t much different now; T-shirts have reached a whole new level of artiness. And you can expect nothing less than smashing when two streetwear maestros join forces. Entitled “UNDEROFFWHITECOVERS”, the capsule collection includes a range of T-shirt, hoodies and shorts, with the Off-White markings reimagined by Jun Takahashi into the colour white, red and yellow.
Onitsuka Tiger x STAFFONLY Sneakers
The fourth stage (out of seven) special collaboration in commemorating Onitsuka Tiger’s 70th anniversary is with STAFFONLY. Based on theme of “Protection” by Shimo Zhou and Une Yea – the designers of the energetic contemporary menswear brand – bumpy details on the toe and heel area in addition to two shoelaces are adopted to complete the novel design. It represents an update of the Serrano sneaker which is inspired by classic track and field spike shoes developed in the 70s.
