Louis Vuitton celebrates Americana in Paris menswear

The collection ranged from the road trip, as imagined in khaki parkas with travel badges and cotton printed bandanas, to a whole mix of different American styles: From sportswear, as in white, blue and red silk graph check tailored shorts, to Gatsby-style evening suits in raw kimono silk with a classy curved lower part. As ever, when travelling anywhere Vuitton-style, don’t expect to rough it. Stylish and coiffed David Beckham looked approvingly on from the front row. Silhouettes were tight and masculine.

The hunky athlete-turned-amateur-model made an unexpected appearance at the Louis Vuitton menswear show in Paris, a fact we first learned from tweets like this : “David Beckham is sitting front row at the @LouisVuitton menswear show. Will @victoriabeckham be joining him????” Victoria was a no-show, but David was there front and center, even posing with Louis Vuitton designer Marc Jacobs before the show began. He looked dapper, obviously, in slim-cut jeans, a gray tee and those ever-present tattoos. (It also helps that we can always picture what underwear he probably has on underneath .) Beckham looked chummy with Jacobs and fellow front row denizen Victor Cruz, but we wonder if he was there on business, too — might a Beckham Louis Vuitton campaign be in the works? Becks has already lent his face body to H&M and Emporio Armani … we wouldn’t be surprised if the next step was a mega fashion campaign. Fingers crossed… Might his Louis Vuitton ads look like this?
