Louis Vuitton Exhibit for Virgil Abloh's Nike Air Force 1

Posted by James Oxlade on

  

The AF1 has become a cultural touchstone as one of Nike's most iconic models. Its continuous relevance in fashion, music, and art is ideal for a Virgil Abloh-engineered remix, which will be released in stages.

Virgil Abloh's Air Force 1 by Louis Vuitton will be released ahead of the luxury brand's Spring/Summer 2022

As part of an immersive digital activation, the shoes will be released globally, however, prior to the launch, the 47 Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 editions will be on display at a public exhibit to highlight one of the late designer's final footwear projects. 

Virgil Abloh envisions 47 pairs of shoes that will be displayed in multiple installations around the world, including New York City.

Louis Vuitton will also set up pop-up installations throughout the city, including in Domino Park, Grand Central, South Street Seaport, Astor Place, Columbus Circle, Flatiron Plaza, and Gansevoort Plaza, to further the exhibition's impact.

The LV x Nike AF1s will cost between €2,000 and €2,500 in sizes 3.5 to 18, if you want to own a piece of fashion history. Even if you're not in the market, the release will be heard across the industry, including in New York City, considered the birthplace of streetwear.
