Luxurious Baller | Louis Vuitton x NBA Collection

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?!

“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. This collection celebrates the cultural contribution of basketball and its diverse characters, and the idea of relatability as a force of unity today,” says Virgil Abloh
