Virgil Abloh, one of fashion’s most influential designers, has died, leaving behind an iconic portfolio of work that earned him the position of Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director. This is where Abloh further bridged the gap between fashion and luxury, blending his own design language with LV’s own, while also introducing the first Air Force 1 to be manufactured outside of a Nike factory.
Virgil Abloh’s community helped shape the “Air Force 1” by Louis Vuitton, which was recently revealed in a series of retail make-ups. It is a high-end upgrade to one of the most culturally significant sneakers ever.
In New York City’s Green Point Terminal Warehouse, Louis Vuitton will exhibit the aforementioned sneaker from May 21 to 31. The collaboration’s creative process will be on display at this free event, which is open to the public. There will be a total of 47 Louis Vuitton Nike Air Force 1 editions on display, both physically and virtually. As an alternative, Louis Vuitton mentions that there will be a number of installations around New York City and the rest of the world.
