We can thank Virgil Abloh for celebrating the NBA Championship the fashion-way with this men’s wear capsule collection with luxury brand, Louis Vuitton.
This ready-to-wear collection has sparked the eyes of trendsetters everywhere. Going on sale November 20 of this year, the NBA x LV limited edition collection includes shoes, bags, jewelry and more– all featuring the NBA logo. The three-year partnership marks Vuitton’s first and only partnership with a North American sports league.
You might be thinking: why this collaboration? Well, if you’ve ever observed a basketball player’s wardrobe when they’re walking to and from their locker rooms, you’d understand the idea. This is usually the time where they’re not in uniform and getting a chance to show off their personal style or endorsements. The collection is divided into three sections: travel, embodied by casual items like cashmere track suits; game arrival, which includes leather jackets and monogram t-shirts and jeans; and press conference, featuring more tailored looks. The collaboration also features an official trophy travel case. Umm, what?!
