Ahead of its digital appearance at Paris Fashion Week, Louis Vuitton has given a preview of its Pre-Spring 2021 Collection. The Virgil Abloh-designed collection is themed around his interpretations of nuance, which is described as a way of “communicating core humanitarian values through poise, style and grace.” Through nuance, Virgil Abloh and Louis Vuitton are representing “the core values of diversity, unity and inclusion.”

This view of nuance is interpreted through the mixing of luxury fashion with references to every day wear which is described as the “re-appropriation of elitist codes into symbols of inclusivity” in the collection notes. Referencing the idea of day-to-day essentials, the collection includes a focus on cold-weather outerwear including a green gilet featuring a new circular flower monogram and a windbreaker covered in a leaf monogram that further nods to the utilitarian theme through its likeness to camouflage.

Other features include tailoring inspired by workwear and pyjamas — further blurring the lines between the luxury and the quotidian — while an intarsia sweater is a reference to a classic cable knit, and a printed T-shirt features instructions on how to knit it.

In terms of footwear, Pre-Spring 2021 will also see Louis Vuitton introduce a new sneaker silhouette, which features a semi-transparent and shock-absorbent sole. Additionally, new Derby and Chelsea boots will be introduced along with archival runners constructed from suede and mesh.

You can preview the collection in the gallery above, with a full lookbook set to arrive later this month. The Pre-Collection will then release in a series of drops between November 13 and February 20. Separately from this collection, Louis Vuitton will also reveal its Spring/Summer 2021 collection with a digital presentation on July 10.

In other fashion news, Raf Simons is reissuing 100 archival pieces.
