Louis Vuitton Virgil Abloh (Classic Cartoon)
Made in Italy, the Classics collection editions are available in two different silk hardcovers. One cover features a cartoon artwork from Virgil’s spring-summer 2021 show by cultural icon and artist Reggieknow, and the other cover is taken from Virgil Abloh for Louis Vuitton’s spring-summer 2022 spinoff show in Miami.
Please note that the interior content is the same for the Classics and Ultimate editions.
Anders Christian Madsen is a fashion writer who contributes to international fashion publications and has served as Fashion Critic for British Vogue since 2017. He works as a consultant to leading fashion houses and sits on committees devoted to emerging talent. Raised in Denmark, he graduated from the London College of Fashion in 2009 and began his career as Fashion Features Director at i-D Magazine. Madsen was a close collaborator of Virgil Abloh throughout his time as Men’s Artistic Director at Louis Vuitton from 2018- 2021.
Assouline and Louis Vuitton are releasing the title with two collectible covers within the Assouline Classics Collection. One taken from the Louis Vuitton’s spring-summer 2022 spinoff show in Miami, with an image of a young child bounding towards a striking red Louis Vuitton hot air balloon, emblematic of the significance of youth in Virgil’s work. The other sports cartoon artwork by cultural icon/artist Reggieknow, who illustrated the now cult characters for Virgil’s spring-summer 2021 show (a video starring animated puppets dubbed ‘The Adventures of Zooom with Friends’)— the first time Louis Vuitton ever collaborated with a Black artist on the runway. The book will also be available in an Ultimate Collection; packaged in a collectible box referencing Virgil’s use of shipping crates in the spring-summer 2021 collection. The Ultimate also features a special, separate insert that serves as compendium for every single sneaker Virgil designed for Louis Vuitton, including this year’s new Air Force 1s.
