Louis Vuitton stokes the bonfire for the pages of our ‘Forbidden’ issue

Louis Vuitton stokes the bonfire for the pages of our 'Forbidden' issue

Louis Vuitton’s Resort 2024 menswear collection is a nod to the most primal source of illumination, fire, and an exploration of the global bonfire culture that brings us together.

For the pages of our November 'Forbidden' issue, models Omari Phipps and Noah Weinbren take to the streets in the French Maison's menswear collection, donning garments marked by 'flyer' motifs embedded with messages of intrigue, and captivating graphic art. Photographed by Nicole Brannen and styled by Charlotte Agnew, fringe-embellished sweaters and block-colour collared polo shirts are partnered with oxidised denim and simple black leather accessories.

The collection was also Louis Vuitton's last before Pharrel's larger-than-life first collection as menswear creative director; its symbolic roots reflective of this transition into a new era, the flame and 'oxidisation' motifs serving as both a literal and a metaphorical guiding light, gesturing onward toward the dawn of a new day for the Maison.
