Louis Vuitton’s latest bags are an ode to the energetic world of Virgil Abloh

The brand’s monogrammed leather gets touches of mint and purple.

Louis Vuitton menswear continues to pay tribute to its former creative director Virgil Abloh, a true visionary

whose death last November had a seismic impact on the industry. While his successor has yet to be named, the

house is quietly building on the tropes and signatures he established during his nearly four-year tenure at

the brand.

The flashes of mint and purple on Louis Vuitton’s monogrammed leather symbolize the energy Virgil Abloh brought

to the house.

The bag collection for spring-summer 2022, for example, nods to the signature S-Lock model designed by Virgil Abloh,

this time splashed with orange, purple and mint green as an ode to the Louis Vuitton artistic director’s “colorful

rainbow and energizing universe,” according to the brand. New items include a briefcase and a portable wallet,

both of which feature a magnetic closure inspired by a historic trunk lock from the French trunk maker, with a

modern twist. The redesigned S-Lock Messenger and Sling bags won’t be reserved for male fans alone, either – Rihanna

and Naomi Campbell shopped in Louis Vuitton’s men’s department instead of the women’s.

Chicago Bears The new version of the classic Keepall bag is destined for the arms of wealthy travelers this summer. 

Even the campaign, which features models flying kites and climbing trees, sings of the childlike wonder Virgil Abloh

brought to a legendary house. “I operate by my own rules, in my own logic, and I’m not afraid,” he said in an interview

six months before his death.

He will be remembered beyond the youthful, streetwise-inspired creativity he brought to Louis Vuitton, for the openness

he practiced in an industry known for its boundaries. The new creative director will be a shining example of the space

he tried to create for all those who, like him, craved change. domhoffefsuzanne Virgil Abloh is remembered for opening the doors of art and

fashion

to future generations.
