Continuing the creative conversation between Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh and Nigo, the founder of the label Human Made. United by friendship and a shared subcultural practice popularly known as streetwear, the two designers investigate their diverse cultural roots under the global emblem of Louis Vuitton. 

Inspired by the personal collections of the Japanese designer – pieces belonging to the British subculture – the LV2 collection dresses the typical silhouette of Western fashion of the 1950s and 1960s with a very Japanese sensibility and disseminates it across borders. Traditional clothing and accessories, military icons and folk costumes are reinvented through the prism of a formalized vision, to infuse a touch of elegance into every casual outfit. Work jackets from the 1950s feature a color block pattern, while denim suits from the same era feature a camouflage pattern in Monogram. A nod to school uniforms, a cropped rowing blazer displays Monogram stripes bordering historic Louis Vuitton trunks, while chino-style pants evoke the cut worn by schoolchildren.
