Lead footwear designer for Louis Vuitton, Mathias Patillon, may have leaked possible Takashi Murakami collaborative items from the label’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection by Virgil Abloh. A video posted recently on Instagram by Patillon shows the Japanese artist drawing his DOB PANDA character on an LV luggage during a visit to the label’s Paris headquarters. Not to mention a multicolored duffle bag embellished with similar artwork is also observed in the backdrop.

Nevertheless, stay tuned for updates and look out for the label’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection to officially debut on June 21 at Paris Fashion Week.
