The Future is Now with Louis Vuitton’s “2054” Collection

By Eliza Jordan

November 18, 2019

Last week at 112 Greene Street in New York, we explored Louis Vuitton’s latest men’s collection by Artistic Director Virgil Abloh. The temporary SoHo residency holds a small yet expansive offering draws inspiration from 1854—the year the house was founded—and transports the consumer to a new era, filled with reimagined attire meant for more than meets the eye.

Even from the outside it’s hard to miss the departure, as rainbow hues striping the entire façade of the building take us from 1854 to 2054 by color alone. Upon entering, that fast-forward idea happens quick.

Lining the shelves are an array of pieces that unfold, unzip, and evoke mystery unlike any we’ve seen from the house in the past: sunglasses are inspired by safety goggles, with changeable technicolor LV monogram lenses; parachute trousers feature removable cargo pockets; a military parka breaks into two separate jackets; a padded overshirt compresses into its own back pocket, zipping into itself; a monogram extra-large scarf can be rolled like a mat; chain jewelry shines in the rainbow motif and a new futuristic LV logo; messenger bags are equipped with expandable features; and the Keepall bag rolls out into a sleeping bag, aptly now named the Sleepall.
