Taking Flight

Louis Vuitton has introduced a vintage travel-inspired capsule collection for Summer 2024 – Flight Mode.

Designed to serve both the journey as well as the destination, the capsule comprises ready-to-wear, travel leather goods, shoes and accessories all created for the contemporary voyager.

Flight Mode collection revolves around a vibrant motif, Élysée Palace, in tribute to the first Parisian luxury hotel at 103 avenue Champs-Élysées with scenery constructed from a multitude of trunks recalling bygone trips and the brand’s pivotal role in untold adventures.

Élysée Palace Hotel stamps appear directly on the monogram canvas across bags such as the Keepall and the Side Trunk along with smaller passport holders and travel cases in a new canvas that reproduces the original fabric from late 19th century trunks.

Additional Flight Mode styles are conducive to travel, whether the new, Low Key Hobo and Shoulder bags in supple grained calfskin, the OnTheGo Voyage with its new inner compartments for easy storage and removable belt pouch, the iconic Capucines, in a sophisticated body-friendly GM upscaled format with a comfortable shoulder carry design, or the small Blossom bag in a refreshing shade of mineral blue.

Flight Mode ready-to-wear imbues stylish sportswear silhouettes with movement and ease. From hooded capes, parkas and blousons in sumptuous or technical materials, to relaxed denim, lightweight layers in ample volumes and swimwear, pieces can be effortlessly worn in varying combinations to yield a versatile and balanced wardrobe.

Coordinated ensembles – including tracksuits, embossed monogram knitwear, cashmere sets and fluid tailoring in pinstripe – make for smart dressing. The Mahina Monogram in a feminine silk twill jacquard complements the feminine and earthy palette, while the Élysee Palacemotif on jersey, twill or nylon turns essential items into colourful statement pieces.

Since Flight Mode encompasses activity and relaxation in equal measure, footwear spans the dynamic LV Rush sneaker, with its recognisable graphic outsole and trail-inspired details on the upper, to mules and sandals adorned with the signature Louis Vuitton hook. The Élysée Palace animation is printed on nylon on the iconic Pool Pillow comfort or played as patches crafted in leather on the Lous open back sneaker.

For a gleaming flourish, the capsule showcases both fine jewellery, such as the LV Volt necklace in white gold, and a selection of fashion jewellery. The LV initials from the GO-14 have been transposed to timeless earrings and a pendant necklace while bracelets and rings from the Nanogram Enamel line can be worn as single pieces or stacked in multiples. Ornamented with delicate pearls, the LV Iconic Louisa earrings and ring signal a subdued elegance.

Lastly, a Dailygram bucket hat and LV Moon Metal Square sunglasses are must-have accessories, ensuring readiness for days under the summer sun. From a single item to an entire trousseau, Flight Mode imagines an endless horizon of travelling in style.
