Louis Vuitton is kicking off the summer travel season with a series of pop ups in the top four tourist hubs in the country: New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and Hawaii. The traveling pop up is featuring exclusive access to the new collection as well, the Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring/Summer 2018 Collection.

The collection features inspiration from travel and exotic islands and incorporates them into design details such as colorful prints and lightweight fabrics. The pop-ups will give LV and travel enthusiasts an opportunity to purchase exclusives from the Men’s SS18 collection, including open sided bomber jackets, Hawaiian shirts, Monogram totes, and even a surfboard.

Louis Vuitton’s unique approach to what he deemed “the art of travel” has been a part of the brand’s ethos since its founding in 1854. Kim Jones, previous Men’s Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton stated how he brought that ethos alive with this season’s venture: “I thought of specific islands - New Zealand, Easter Island, and especially Hawaii - but I was also inspired by the idea of an island, and of travel. Of moving easily from place to place, and experiencing these different pockets of civilisation, these different identities simultaneously.”

These traveling popups are also directly following the New York exhibition of Volez, Voguez, Voyagez, the curation of the Louis Vuitton travel experience. Just as the exhibit was perfect for anyone with a bit of luxury wanderlust, this travel pop up is just the fix you’ll need for the summer season.

Miami kicked off the traveling pop up in January, and New York’s Madison Avenue will close it out on March 15th.
