For Fall 2021, Louis Vuitton presents a Menswear capsule collection designed for urbanites who favor a formal silhouette with subtle, nonchalant twists.
Inspired by a 1914 greeting card written by Gaston-Louis Vuitton featuring an expressionist bouquet against a checkerboard background, Virgil Abloh’s latest line revisits both the Damier and Monogram signatures in novel ways.
The archival greeting card’s handwritten inscription “Marque L. Vuitton déposée” finds its way over a century later throughout the Fall collection in a Damier motif featuring pencil-like markings. For the season’s new Monogram Sunset, a multicolor tie-dye effect reinterprets one of Virgil Abloh’s earliest prints, a running theme throughout his Louis Vuitton collections.
Combining historic references in thoroughly modern ways, both the Damier Greetings and Monogram Sunset patterns feature across a range of fall-ready garments, outerwear, shoes, accessories in addition to a selection of familiar leather goods such as the Keepall, Soft Trunk, or Sac Plat.
