Yes, you read that right. Only weeks ago Virgil Abloh presented his sophomore collection for Louis Vuitton at Paris Fashion Week Men’s, showcasing a range of pieces inspired by music, streetwear and LV’s heritage. Now, we’re taking a look at the collection’s accessories, with a focus on the over-sized backpacks Abloh brought down the runway.
The enormous bag is crafted from a grey fleece material which was also seen throughout the Fall/Winter 2019 range on everything from sneakers to bulky outerwear. Emblazoned with a chunky Louis Vuitton monogram pattern, the massive carryall bag sports two big pockets at side, a top flap closure as well as dangling straps throughout. To finish off the piece, an LV logo keychain is added in a silver hardware to add a luxury touch to the bag. But don’t get too excited, the huge piece retails at a jaw-dropping $10,000 USD.
In addition to the backpack, the collection also includes a Louis Vuitton Jenga set which retails at an affordable $2,000 USD, coming with transparent blocks in red, blue and transparent hues with LV branding across. Get a closer look at the backpack in the gallery above, and see the Jenga set in-action below. To refresh your mind, take another look at Virgil Abloh’s Fall/Winter 2019 range for Louis Vuitton here.
