Colour my world
Louis Vuitton’s capsule collection for 2021 is a homage to the colours of the Venice Beach area, with Hawaiian shorts and shirts, Japanese denims and monogrammed cottons with watercolour hues. The designs are environmentally friendly as 100% of the brand’s products will commit to an eco-design strategy by 2025. The colour palette was specifically conceived without chlorine or metals. Cottons used are certified by the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) or the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), and the wool of some designs, by the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS), while other fabrics are recycled, including the nylon of windbreakers.
Gentle Monster X Sankuanz launches an eyewear collection in different styles. For example, the Cilice is a cat-eye frame crafted from acetate and designed in collaboration with Sankuanz.

The collection expresses the consistent battle between internal peacefulness and human desire, worship and forgiveness as well as a yearning to run from modern temptations.
