The Collective Energy of Today’s Youth is Virgil Abloh’s latest endeavor. The Louis Vuitton Pre-Spring/Summer 2020 collection details its latest project through close-up, on-body and stylized shots of the new eclectic pieces.
Initially launched in early October, the French fashion house includes innovative garments in the form of “Monogram Legacy” bags, a quilted chain crewneck, an online-exclusive Persian Jacquard half-zip polo, a milk box-shaped crossbody bag, hand-spray-painted workwear jacket, gradient denim jacket, LV 408 sneakers, Cuban link chains, LV-emblem rings and matching bangles.
Following its exclusive release in Seoul, alternate versions of the LV 408 Trainer are now available worldwide – dropping on November 25th in Seoul and New York, and on December 4th in London, Paris, Milan, Chicago, Dubai, Shanghai and Tokyo. Made in Italy, the sneakers are a combination of 106 unique components and six hours of tireless stitching. The LV 408 Trainers are available in grey, black and white – offset by colorful detailing. Each sneaker features color-coded laces and luggage tags, dependent on the point of purchase.
The colors are as follows:
New York – Dark Blue
Paris – Light Blue
London – Yellow
Chicago – Bright Orange / Dark Green
Milan – Pink
Tokyo – Purple
Shanghai – Teal
The new quilted chain crewneck features Studio Jacquard 3D-chain-graphic-effects, with subtle LV pendant detailing on the front.
Reinterpreting a centuries-old design, the Monogram Legacy bags, combine the fashion house’s iconic monogram canvas leather with tanned WN leather for a luxuriously contemporary take on heritage accessories – PLUS its gold chain is an Abloh-infused twist.
Vuitton’s latest Pre-SS20 milk box bag, inspired by the brand’s Mini Noé is a smooth tanned leather cross-body featuring a unique top-opening with a gold-toned pin and chain closure. Other bags include the Saumur Messenger PM bag, the Cabas Voyage tote bag and the large Steamer PM – a 1901 messenger bag which can be carried by its VVN top handle or worn cross-body with Abloh’s signature chain and safety pin closure system. All bags come equipped with the brand’s rich heritage design and adjustable padded shoulder straps.
In addition to the Pre-Spring/Summer 2020 collection, Louis Vuitton enthusiasts currently anticipate the drop of its 2054 collection which is said to feature 100 percent water-repellent technical fabric, knitwear from treated calf-skin, parachute pants with removable cargo pockets, bags with techno fabrics or puffer leathers complemented with a see-through plastic hardware detail, and a padded over-shirt with multiple zips.
While the Louis Vuitton 2054 collection is set to launch in December’19 at select stores worldwide, the Pre-SS20 collection is currently for sale on the brand’s official website and in stores.
