NIGO x Virgil Abloh Unveil Louis Vuitton LV² Collaboration

Named “LV²” by NIGO himself, this collection is a homage to the duality of the creative approach by the aforementioned and Virgil Abloh. As for NIGO, his influence and design schemes can be seen throughout the collection especially on the pants that capture every little detail, down to the vintage-style patchwork and stitching.

The LV² captures Louis Vuitton’s iconic leather pattern work from the traditional ‘LV’ monogram to the equally aesthetically pleasing signature Damier pattern. The two patterns can be seen merged together on a few garments as well as on a layered drip motif on the bags.

In an interview with Vogue, Abloh had this to say:

I didn’t say it to be polarizing. … If you speak to anyone that’s been in streetwear for the last 15 years, it’s always had this sort of nine lives, dying and coming back, and dying and coming back. There’s so many first generation streetwear brands, stores, and retailers. The market wasn’t as vibrant as it is now, so they went out of business and people don’t remember those. … Partially what I meant [by] “it will die” is that new things like tailoring from guys like Nigo and me will be born from the regeneration of it.
