This Virgil Abloh and NIGO’ second collaboration for Louis Vuitton was inspired by NIGO and Abloh’s diverse cultural roots, which translated concretely into hybrid blends between Western tailoring à la 1950s and ’60s and the intricate designs of Japanese culture.
Blazers, denim suits, shirts, jackets and luggage all featured signature graphic elements of Human Made and Louis Vuitton: tiger head and red heart for the first, the Monogram and the classic checkerboard for the second.
The collaboration also extended to accessories which included co-branded briefcases and weekend bags, LV monogram or duck-shaped shoulder bags, fanciful and colorful square glasses, but also the LV Trainer available in two versions: one with an all-over graphic, and the other which mixed grainy leather with denim details.
