 Louis Vuitton FW18: Kim Jones's farewell show The designer greets the audience holding hands with Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss

Paris Fashion Week.

David, Victoria and Brooklyn Beckham and football stars Neymar and Kevin Trapp of Paris Saint-Germain are just some of the people who crowd the Palais Royal waiting to see the Louis Vuitton show, the last one with Kim Jones as creative director.

For his farewell, the English designer designs a sartorial journey between the wild west and the far east, but also between past and future. From the landscape of Kenya takes the motif of the prints, from the world of US rodeos the way of wearing Bermuda shorts over leggings, from Russia the mink, from climbing technical details and fluorescent colors.

His explorer brings with him the Louis Vuitton tradition, he makes it meet with sportswear and, finally, the project pours the future using materials like titanium or others with an iridescent effect, python, and metallic details. The result is a collection of extreme elegance and modernity that perfectly embodies Jones's ability to transform his globetrotter background into a hybrid style between street and haute couture.

At the end of the show, the public pays tribute to Kim's talent with a standing ovation, while he walks the catwalk hand in hand with friends and muse Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, who wear two iconic paint-effect canvas trench coats with monograms LV, accessorized with hyper-cool boots.
