You most likely do not need us to tell you about what makes the Louis Vuitton x Nigo Collection one of the flyest collabs this year — its British subculture meets Japan streetwear god sensibilities meets democratic but timeles, very in-the-now aesthetic.
Heck, you probably just want to know how to cop it and folks, it drops 28 August 2020, 10am, at Louis Vuitton’s Ngee Ann City.
If you aren’t clued in or are just curious on what are some pieces to cop from the second wave, keep scrolling.
The #1 streetstyle grail of the year? The mini tote. FYI: it comes with an adjustable strap too.
While the first wave of the Louis Vuitton x Nigo Collection was heavy on the casual cool of denim, the second is Abloh’s take on tailoring with Nigo’s stamp of Japanese streetstyle god approval.
Besides being in distinct shades of greys and browns, the fit is that of the 1960s mod look — a movement that embraced the tailoring of gentlemen without being too overtly serious about it.
Sure, the suits are hyper tailored and the boys are perpetually on scooters but when was the last time a “youth” trend had such longevity?
The classic Nigo staple — a bomber jacket albeit this time with a plush fur collar.
Yes, the Louis Vuitton x Nigo Collection has classics like the Amazone Messenger bag and Christopher backpack.
If you’re wondering what else is new, check out the collection’s array of silver jewellery marked with ‘LV²’ or ‘Louis Vuitton² come 28 August, 10a.m., at Louis Vuitton’s Ngee Ann City.
Now the big question: what are you gonna cop from the Louis Vuitton x Nigo Collection?
