On Twitter Louis Vuitton is all over the place subtly nudging everyone to buy Valentine’s Day gifts from their 2015 Cruise Collection. Nicholas Ghesquière went all the way, to Africa, literally, to find design inspirations for the collection and found them in Gaston-Louis Vuitton’s African mask collection from the 1930’s. Ghesquière chose to do a small leather goods collection dubbed the Mask Collection using these beautiful and colorful masks to add a fresh and dynamic look to the range.
The collection includes wallets, card holder, and pouches. Not exactly small leather goods, but the assortment also includes a pair of trendy wedge sandals, a bracelet, and a necklace. The Mask Collection’s main highlight, however, is the use of mask lock in most of the wallets.
