Latest AF1 LV releases pass down his legacy to future generations
After months of anticipation, rumors and indicrections, the Louis Vuitton Nike Air Force 1s have seen the light.
In addition to the exclusivity of the collaboration between the luxury French Maison and the sportswear giant, the careful craftsmanship-which we will talk about later-and the premium materials; these sneakers represent a real legacy left by Virgil Abloh.
Yes, because the Nike Air Force 1 Louis Vuitton sneakers were created by the designer in June 2022, on the occasion of the LV Spring/Summer 2022 fashion show. After almost a year-and six months since his passing-the two brands decided it was time to continue the project started by Virgil.
The launch will be accompanied by an event destined to be remembered: an extraordinary exhibition at New York’s Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse – from May 20 to 27.
An immersive experience where the 47 models created by Abloh will be displayed and presented in a surreal and colorful location reminiscent of an enchanted forest, complete with a tree house. The event will be followed by several art installations around the Big Apple.
