Louis Vuitton and Nike joined forces with 47 bespoke editions as part of the Louis Vuitton Men Spring Summer 2022 Collection.
As light as air. A sneak peek at one of the new Louis Vuitton and Nike “Air Force 1” by Virgil Abloh sneakers.
Originally designed by Nike in 1982, the “Air Force 1” by Louis Vuitton is the first time the shoe is crafted outside of a Nike factory. An emblem of the streetwear community that raised him, Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh (1980-2021) considered the Nike Air Force 1 to be a cultural symbol in its own right. Now two icons join forces to create the most authentic high-end sneaker.
Fashion transcends to an objet d’art symbolic of subculture with a little magic and innovation.
From May 21-31, 2022, the exhibition Louis Vuitton and Nike “Air Force 1” by Virgil Abloh takes place at the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse in Brooklyn. Open to the public, the expansive showcase charts the creative dialogue between Nike and Louis Vuitton envisioned by the Maison’s Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh for the Spring-Summer 2022 collection prior to his passing on November 28, 2021. The 47 editions of the Nike Air Force 1 sneaker created by Virgil Abloh in partnership with Nike for Louis Vuitton are displayed in physical and virtual form in immersive spaces reflective of the designer’s domains of creation and presentation. Coinciding with the exhibition, a number of corresponding installations are taking place around New York City and the world.
