There have been many leaks and speculation in the lead up to the official unveiling of the Louis Vuitton x NBA collection. Following a championship win from the Los Angeles Lakers this weekend, the full collaboration has been revealed. Along with the iconic NBA Larry O’Brien Trophy Travel Case, we now have a first look at shoes, bags, and ready-to-wear essentials.
Crafted under the watchful eye of artistic director Virgil Abloh, the collaborative pieces are a nod to the player’s wardrobe and captures the spirit of the three main dress codes: travels and transits, game arrivals, and press conferences. T-shirts, windbreakers, hoodies and leather bomber jackets are stitched with basketball patterning as well as co-branding and knitwear and smart silhouettes feature a basketball silhouette reminiscent to the NBA logo.
When it comes to accessories, an earlier leak was accurate with low-top hiking boots, while other offerings include leather loafers and slip-on canvas shoes. Bags arrive in a wide range of silhouettes, though the hero style is a monogrammed shoe bag. To round out the Louis Vuitton x NBA collection, gold and leather bracelets and rings can be seen.
“Fashion muses aren’t predictable. Ideas of luxury can be found in the sports world and its champions as much as in traditional forms of artistry,” Abloh said in a statement. “This collection celebrates the cultural contribution of basketball and its diverse characters, and the idea of relatability as a force of unity today.”
You can cop the look from November 20. In the meantime, peep the full looks below.
