Paris match
3 June

Last month, Louis Vuitton (opens in new tab) enlisted artist Luckylefthand to emblazon the facade of its headquarters near the Pont Neuf bridge in Paris, with a colourful mural. Now you too can carry a symbol of the city’s prolific architecture, with the maison’s latest ‘Pont 9’ bag, which celebrates Paris’ oldest and most celebrated bridge. The style also nods to the history of the house, featuring a hardware clasp, inspired by a 1930s archive logo, which has been reinterpreted by artistic director of womenswear Nicolas Ghesquière. The logo also features as a buckle on the bag’s leather strap, meaning you can carry both a symbol of Paris and Vuitton on your shoulder, wherever you go.

Courtside style
1 June

There’s something space age about Kiko Kostadinov’s (opens in new tab) latest trainer collaboration with Asics. The womenswear style, designed by Laura and Deanna Fanning brings together the Gessirit sneaker silhouette, with a 2003 tennis model, the Excourt, which was noted for its quilted upper and lack of logo. The result is an eye-catching multicoloured style, with spacey Gel pod detailing which alludes to Asics history of material innovation. We’ll be hitting the tennis court in this cream pair, accented with pops of yellow, metallic blue and red. Game, set, style match.
