Louis Vuitton’s Men's Collection by Virgil Aboh
An investigation into the spring wardrobe, the second chapter of the Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2022 Men’s Collection by Virgil Abloh will be delivered to stores in March 2022. The collection exemplifies the Men’s Artistic Director’s anthropological approach to the intermediary clothing line. “My philosophy is very much informed by the clothes that people actually wear. What I do is an analysis of a generation: what do people buy and why do they wear it? That question naturally creates an equal interest in tradition as it does in changing tradition. But it’s also about challenging myself and exploring different land. That is creative freedom,” he said, explaining his pre-collection procedure.
The idea of the three-piece suit takes new shapes informal silhouettes composed tonally of jackets, trousers and wrap skirts. Shirts swap places with roll-necks. The twin-set is evoked through matching hoodies and zip cardigans knitted in deìgradeì and also lionized in a stripy multi-color mohair Monogram cardigan. A symbol of the switching and fusing of dress codes, Keepalls and small leather goods patchwork the colors, patterns, and materials of the collection, while LV Trainers with strap detailing – rendered in a wealth of colorways – take over from the traditional idea of a formal shoe.
