Louis Vuitton Foulards d'Artistes Scarf Collection at Dover Street Market Ginza

Louis Vuitton has launched its Foulards d’Artistes scarf collection in Tokyo with help from Olivier Zahm, editor-in-chief of French fashion magazine Purple. The scarves, designed by a group of international artists, made their retail debut at Dover Street Market Ginza this past Saturday with other LV stores getting the goods next month. Zahm also shot a series of photos of the scarves and brings more light to another photography exhibition he is doing at Tokyo’s Last Gallery, originally owned by the late Dune magazine founder and publisher Fumihiro Hayashi.

The Foulards d’Artistes collection is produced each season in collaboration with a specific artist, and for this edition New York-based Japanese creative Aiko was asked to create the new, graffiti-inspired prints. (via super)

On their way to watch-world domination, seems the folks at HODINKEE have scheduled a few stops.

Raised by Wolves Lunar Cycle Varsity Jacket

Raised by Wolves Lunar Cycle Varsity Jacket - Fall 2012

From Montreal-based Raised by Wolves comes their Lunar Cycle Varsity Jacket for F/W ’12. Every year, it seems there’s always one standout varsity that catches everyone’s attention and we think this is 2012’s equivalent to GANT Rugger’s Homerun Jacket of 2010. The subtle and well-thought-out details on this one make it a must-have piece because we’re just not sure we’ll see one like it for quite sometime. It’s made in the good ol’ US of A by Ebbets Field Flannels and features felt appliqué patches and letterings. The melton wool body sits well with the leather sleeves while the interior of the body is Ripstop NyCo MultiCam lined.
