New essentials from Paris perfectly suited for NorCal.

Louis Vuitton presents its Icons collection—a return to basic style—throughout the streets of San Francisco, sported by Marin County native and aspiring filmmaker Sam Hayes. The idea was to build on the label’s signature pieces—including the Harrington blouson, Macintosh raincoat and leather Perfecto jacket—adding raw denim, slim-fitting chinos, neutral-colored knits and outerwear accented with Damier-print lining that “are easy to wear and combine with any man’s wardrobe,” explains Paris-based Men’s Studio and Style Director Kim Jones. Along with Vuitton’s Porte-Documents Voyage leather briefcase, which will be a mainstay in the Icons lineup, must-have spring items include cream-colored trenches and chambray button-downs—while future collections will continue to add new colors and fabrics in a similarly timeless aesthetic. 295 N.
