If there is a recurring element that accompanied Virgil Abloh in his role as creative director of Louis Vuitton, then this is probably the kite. Symbol chosen as an expression of total freedom and fun. He was seen several times appearing during the spring / summer 2020 collection show, which had an exclusive green kite as an invitation given to guests at the end of the event. And perhaps not everyone will remember that the first time it was inserted in the context of the French maison dates back to June 2018 on the occasion of the first line designed by Abloh for the brand. In that event, the designer was captured in an iconic photo as he launched a kite on the catwalk at the gates of the Palais-Royal in Paris. The manifestation of the beginning of a new era in which everything is possible.
Well, with great amazement, the brand has recently released a kite on its official website. It is undoubtedly an unusual object for a fashion house, but it actually reflects very well the heritage of LV. The history of the brand in fact has its roots on the experience of travel and therefore on outdoor activities, with a healthy dose of carefree. The accessory has been reinterpreted with a professional structure made up of technical nylon entirely covered with the timeless LV monogram. THE monogram also covers the elegant case to contain it.
The Louis Vuitton kite presents itself as exactly the perfect gift for any self-respecting luxury lover and collector. But in addition to the choice of proposing a product of this type, another factor that is making people talk is without a doubt the price. A cost of € 7050.
