Louis Vuitton Launches Its Latest 2054 Collection For Men

For the second edition of the Louis Vuitton 2054 collection Men’s Artistic Director, Virgil Abloh expands his experimentation with functional fashion on a bigger scale.

Part of the Pre-Spring 2021 collection this line devoted to performance and tech fuses together urban and activewear through contemporary, adaptable essentials.

This season, LV2054 clarifies its message and extends its reach with a multi-climatic collection derived from methods used in professional skiwear. These technologically advanced garments acclimatise to changing weather conditions to be both functional and stylish.

The multi-faceted textures of Nylon give a futuristic approach to the collection while a green and black print evokes the luminosity of night vision, while a multi-colour pattern imitates the infrared effects of heat vision.

A ski suit composed of a padded jacket and trousers fuses the properties of water repellence and breathability in a functional proposal for the everyday city wardrobe while a leather parka is adorned with a 3-D printed pattern that doubles as texture. The multi-zips of a jacket enable the wearer to transform it into multiple different garments.

Using the unique in-house technique of compressomorphosis, a shirt self-compresses into a cross-body bag. It is a transformability echoed in ergonomic waterproof bags of body-adaptable volumes with extendable and removable pockets. The collection debuts a technical black runner with bright colour detailing and reflective effects.

The name of the line; Louis Vuitton 2054 plays on themes of futurism and progress, uniting the present century with 1854, the year the House was founded, in a salute to its two-hundredth year.
