French maison Louis Vuitton has opened a temporary residency in Sydney.

The two-level boutique, located on the corner of Pitt and King Street in Sydney’s CBD, will offer a three-month immersion into the Louis Vuitton men’s universe including the LV trainer sneakers, sunglasses and accessories.

The event is part of a global series of men’s fashion events dubbed Walk in the Park — rooted in the inclusive values at the heart of the late Virgil Abloh’s work.

After launching in Paris, the showcase travelled to New York and Shibuya before landing in Sydney and features a bold, colourful fit out —a reference to Abloh’s first Spring Summer 2019 show in Paris.

For the first time, clients will be given the opportunity to rediscover and obtain the iconic Louis Vuitton men’s sneakers established under the artistic direction of Virgil Abloh.

The latest LV trainer upcycling collection will be available, including an exclusive Sydney colourway issued in a total of 100 pairs. True to the upcycling ideology conceived by Virgil as part of the Spring Summer 2021 collection the sneakers are crafted entirely from upcycled LV trainer material. Other exclusives include a pair of 1.1 Millionaire sunglasses in purple and a meaningful Monogram kite that featured in Virgil’s first and last show.

 

Further, the residency will celebrate Virgil Abloh’s creativity and legacy with a 7.5-metre 3D sculpture of the late designer featuring predominately in the space.
