$10,000 USD Backpacks and $2,000 USD Jenga Sets: Louis Vuitton Fall 2019 Accessories
We went inside the fashion house’s seasonal showroom.
There’s much to-do about Virgil Abloh’s Fall 2019 collection for longstanding luxury label Louis Vuitton, with news breaking this afternoon that Vuitton will not produce any of the range’s Michael Jackson items. Despite the French fashion label’s all-or-none approach to handling the Leaving Neverland controversy, there’s still a wide assortment of premium goods launching as part of the seasonal release; some of the choicest bits were scoped when we visited the Louis Vuitton Fall 2019 showroom.
Key among the goods is an enormous backpack crafted from the same grey fleece as the Fall 2019 collection’s bulky outerwear and beefy sneakers, emblazoned with a jacquard print of Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram pattern. The huge carryall is big enough to sleep inside, with a bevy of substantial pockets and dangling straps to add even more visual appeal. Adjustable pinhole snaps ensure that the pack maintains sturdy closure, while heavy-duty silver LV logo dangles across the rear. Retail price? $10,000 USD, the same as the outerwear.
For a (slightly) more affordable prize, there’s the Louis Vuitton Jenga set at $2,000 USD, which comes with red, blue and transparent rectangular blocks. A transparent carrying case and blocks all sport minute Louis Vuitton branding, with the monogram etched on the rear of each block and the LV logo on the front. The case’s leather strap completes the premium motif.
