While Louis Vuitton‘s Spring/Summer 2021 collection and show caused plenty of controversy for its designer Virgil Abloh, the luxury label’s Pre-Spring 2021 collection looks to be a more subtle affair.

This time around, Abloh mostly steers away from bright colors and bold patterns by delivering crisp, clean cuts and looks served in palettes perfect for that winter-to-spring transition — just like those that we saw in the brand’s teaser earlier this year. While there are prints — botanical leaves are mixed with the Louis Vuitton monogram for a brown-toned camouflaged effect on numerous pieces, including trousers and a shearling collar jacket — these prints are not too loud, and are in fact, just right.

The prints compliment other pieces in the collection such as the accessories. Bags synonymous with Abloh’s vision for Louis Vuitton are finished with gold-toned hardware and similar mottled camouflaged prints, while berets and soft-brimmed bush hats also appear with gold-toned hardware.

There’s an undertone of being a explorer that runs throughout the collection, and this can be seen through pieces such as the LV-monogram-padded liner in khaki green, the denim two-piece, the brown pea coat, and more. However, later on in the collection, we find contrasts with full looks that are covered in a multicolored watercolor take on the LV monogram, delivering everything from shirts, hoodies and trousers to miniature bags and duffles.

Tailoring appears heavily throughout the Pre-Spring 2021 collection, with standouts including a petrol blue two-piece finished with LV pocket detailing, and another suit that combines elements of workwear and utilitarianism into its design thanks to the full-button-up placket.

In terms of shoes, Louis Vuitton has put a focus on formal pairs such as Oxfords and Derby’s finished in high-shine black or with the LV monogram, and it also showcases more of the upcoming Lucien Clarke sneaker. Take a look at Louis Vuitton’s Pre-Spring 2021 collection in the lookbook above, and expect pieces to filter into stores in the coming months.
