    Life, Published on 11/02/2016

    » Louis Vuitton's menswear for this spring/summer is like a trip across Asia. Thanks to the brand's heritage of travelling, where luggage was their main product, it's a perfect excuse to tell stories of cultures around the world. In fact, that's what this spring/summer of menswear is all about -- stories across Southeast Asia broken down into different pieces of outerwear. From the birds of paradise of Indonesia, set on top of dusky pinks and sunset-hued silks, to the bold stripes that take their inspiration from Thailand's Lahu hilltribe, the season's collection exudes a satiny Asian touch.

It is also home to many smaller ethnic minority groups such as the Karen, Hmong or Lahu. However, Thailand has never had the best track record when it comes to dealing with these foreign or ethnic minorities, especially when it comes to documentation. This poses a problem to these minorities, many of whom have lived in Thailand for decades, as they don't have the legal documents and identification often required in various situations, from medical or school applications to basic protection of law.
