Nicolas Ghesquiere Gives Louis Vuitton Monogram a Fun Makeover

For Nicolas Ghesquiere, who is used to throwing elaborate, buzz worthy fashion shows, this year's Cruise 2021 presentation looked a whole lot different. The designer took the last few months as a reset and used this time to create a paired down, more relaxed collection that put a focus on the everyday aspects of fashion versus the more editorial side. The collection was presented in a series of snapshots at the Louis Vuitton studio in Paris. That being said, no detail was spared as Ghesquiere played with Louis Vuitton’s iconic Monogram motif, mixing colors with the shapes and suits from a deck of cards.   As for the bags, the new handbags for LV Cruise take most of their inspiration from playing...

First Look at Virgil Abloh’s Latest Bags for Louis Vuitton

It's been nearly two years since Virgil Abloh was appointed creative director for Louis Vuitton Menswear. Abloh's direction breathed new life into the brand's men's collections, shining a bright light on them and attracting attention from both men and women. Abloh's creative vision has always been rooted in streetwear, and at a time in fashion when street style ready collections reign supreme, Abloh's designs have been incredibly well-received. For Fall-Winter 2020 Abloh took a look at the ever-evolving men's suit and aimed to challenge traditional dress codes. At the same time, Abloh redefined what the term 'streetwear' actually means, characterizing it as ' the clothes we actually wear and the way we wear them.' In terms of bags, and there were many, monogram...

Virgil Abloh has spotlight the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2020 collection in a new set of campaign imagery titled “Footprints,” and themed around “Man’s positive impact on the planet.” The campaign was shot in Tangier and Chefchaouen in Morocco by photographer Viviane Sassen, with four subsequent sets of imagery set to focus on other continents around the world.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Jungle Collection

Earlier this year Louis Vuitton introduced an exaggerated version of its iconic Monogram print.
