Louis Vuitton introduces a new collection that looks into the future of clothing. Led by Virgil Abloh, the “2054” collection fast-forwards to the year 2054 — 200 years after the founding of Louis Vuitton Malletier — and imagines what type of garments the house could potentially offer.

The contemporary collection capitalizes on futuristic techniques for manufacturing as well as the latest innovations in fabrics and materials. Acting as the luxury label’s take on techwear, the collection comes predominantly clad in black and sees jackets, pants, shirts, bags, vests, and even footwear. Key pieces include the iridescent technical utility vest, 3D pants and shirt that have been treated with a debossed rainbow camouflage monogram pattern, and rainbow camo Keepall.
