A little over a week ago we announced a new release of the collaboration between Nike and Louis Vuitton. An exclusive selection of sneakers designed by Virgil Abloh himself.

Now, Louis Vuitton brings us closer to the trainer than ever before. Through a BTS-style video, we can see all the details of the creation process that the exclusive Nike Air Force 1 x Louis Vuitton undergoes. From the last chosen to establish the shape of the silhouette to the breakdown of the different elements that make up the sneaker.

The Louis Vuitton and Nike “Air Force 1” exhibition by Virgil Abloh will be held from 20 to 31 May 2022 at the Green Point Terminal Warehouse in New York. This monumental event is open to everyone and will highlight the creative dialogue between the two brands. Virgil Abloh devised this collaboration in his Spring-Summer 2022 collection, which was presented before his death on 28 November 2021. The 47 models of the Nike “Air Force 1” trainer signed by the Artistic Director for Louis Vuitton‘s men’s collections in collaboration with Nike will be exhibited physically and virtually in immersive spaces that reflect Virgil Abloh‘s own mode of presentation and realms of expression. There will also be a series of installations in New York and other cities around the world.
