January is the month of the Men’s Fashion Weeks. New York, London and Milan have already showcased their newest men’s collections to the press. In this very moment it is the French designers’ turn. The Paris Fashion Week is in full swing. Louis Vuitton already hit the runway.
Men’s Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton Kim Jones dedicated the FW 2015 2016 collection to Christopher Nemeth.
“I think Christopher Nemeth is the most important designer to come out of London alongside Vivienne Westwood”, says Kim Jones. “He is Savile Row, he is the street, he is the club… his designs define London. He trained as a fine artist and came into fashion from being an illustrator, and that chimes with how I started. I can see the influence of his work in so many collections, and yet it is not often acknowledged and still seems unknown to many. That’s why, as we approach the fifth anniversary of his death, I wanted to openly celebrate Christopher Nemeth’s life and work this season at Louis Vuitton.’
