Once again NIGO and Virgil Abloh teamed up after their successfully beginning their collaboration last year and this time for the latest LV² collection for Louis Vuitton . The inspiration for the Pre-Spring 2022 collection is drawn from various diverse cultural aspects of both NIGO and Abloh’s, along with NIGO’s own personal collections of British subcultural dress.
Many elements are taken from the Western tailoring from the 1950s and ’60s eras alongside with accents of Japanese culture. The color-blocked workwear blazers, denim suits in a Monogram camouflage and a rowing blazer that sports the lining of Louis Vuitton trunks are some of the highlighting features of the collection. Some of the key features reciprocate NIGO’s Human Made label, to be precise , the tiger head and red heart graphics.
The kimono-inspired shirts and jackets, as well as references to postage stamps and a jacket constructed in the Monogram coated canvas which are significant for being used in Louis Vuitton’s luggage , portray a perfect amalgamation of the two designers and Louis Vuitton’s travel and fashion heritage.
The LV² Pre-Spring 2022 collection extends itself beyond clothing via accessories such as Japanese-inspired bags, and jewelry in the images of the duck, tiger and heart and footwear. For this particular collection, NIGO and Virgil Abloh have updated the LV Trainer with all-over graphics and another colorway that mixes grainy leather with denim details.
