Louis Vuitton’s 2054 Vision
The historic French maison looks to the future for its latest collection.
Luxury is looking to the future, and in a follow up to its initial 2054 collection Louis Vuitton has presented a second look at how luxury fashion is going to look in a few decades.
It’s a playful take on imagining the French maison’s wears two centuries after its founding in 1854.
The collection lands with the hopes that skiwear will be a must – maybe hinting at an atomic winter or, more positively, a slowing of global warming. More likely the latter as the graphics speak to themes of global warming with thermo-sensitive heat maps of the world appearing on sweaters and T-shirts.
Further, technical wear makes its mark with black sneakers, space grey tights, ergonomic waterproof bags, an assortment of metallic nylons and a 3-D attempt at the iconic monogram.
Perhaps in the future we won’t even have accessories, with LV’s collection blending garments and bags together – as exhibited in the monogrammed T-shirt (above) which sees it fused with a crossbody bag.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
