Louis Vuitton Spring ’12 mens collection is all about safari-ready details and reinvigorating the brand’s signature check with vibrant colors inspired by the Maasai.

Racked says:

For Spring 2012, he showed suits with the pants rolled up, varsity jackets, zigzag knit sweaters, and even a tux paired with shorts. The color palette contained mostly neutrals such as khaki, navy, brown, grey, and cream. But there was also a red and royal blue Masai-inspired grouping of plaid and Damier check items from scarves to short sleeved shirts.

GQ says:

This season, designer Kim Jones takes the helm at the house and pulls from a very Peter Beard-ian world, designing for that man who could be hanging in the south of France with the Stones one week and then with a Masai tribesman another. Either way, he’s dressed.

New Men’s Style Director, Kim Jones, recently told the International Herald Tribune that he looked toward the continent for artistic cues:

“Growing up in Africa, living with little lizards, snakes and elephants or being chased by baboons — it never really goes away,” said Mr. Jones, 32, referring to family life in the wild with his hydrogeologist father.
