Virgil Abloh Makes Futuristic Collection ‘Louis Vuitton 2054’

Virgil Abloh, the Men’s Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton, made a futuristic collection for Louis Vuitton titled ‘Louis Vuitton 2054’. No, the collection won’t be released in 2054, but it is based on how Virgil Abloh sees the customers of Louis Vuitton being dressed by then. The name is not only based on the future, it also refers to the start of Louis Vuitton, which was in 1854. Louis Vuitton customers 200 years from where it all began: that’s the story behind the pieces.

The materials are created in 100% water-repellent technical fabrications including treated calf skin. There will be 14 pieces in a selection of styles and colors. The collection will launch in Spring-Summer 2020.

The identifiable code

Virgil Abloh kept the iconic codes of Louis Vuitton in the collection, the details that make it Louis Vuitton. 3D Louis Vuitton logos on the breast pockets and pocket flaps of the trousers. The classic Monogram, but reinvented in a camouflage rainbow motif. The pattern repeated in a black and white on the lining of most garments. Zips pullers in transparent plexiglass buckles. Bags in techno fabrics, mixed embossed or puffer leathers complemented with see-trough plastic hardware details.

Multifunctional, transformable and innovative

The collection also has multifunctional and transformable values. These can be found in the bags. The Messenger bags are embedded with expandable features, while the Christopher backpack holds smart side pockets. The most innovative piece of the collection is the new version of the iconic Keepall: The ‘Sleepall’. The bag can be unfolded into a sleeping bag.

Accessories

A black nylon boot with a trail sneaker sole, and a black leather utility sneaker with nylon details. An extra-large scarf with the 3D Monogram and a water-repellent bucket hat. Chain jewelry in the rainbow motif and a gourmet necklace in black ruthenium embellished with a rainbow-colored LV charm. Black sunglasses, inspired by safety goggles, featured with interchangeable lenses: a classic black and a playful clear lens with a multi-reflective monogram effect. The collection will also launch a new version of the Tambour Horizon watch.
