Louis Vuitton Releases $37K USD Crochet Leather Jacket
First seen in the brand’s SS23 runway show.
The brand’s official name for the garment is a “Crochet Leather Overshirt.” At its center, the overshirt/jacket is seemingly inspired by chore coats, with a four-pocket chest, button closure and wide collar. However, the materials are about as far from workwear as you could imagine, with the chest and top third of the sleeves made from supple black calf leather, while the rest of the sleeves are covered with vibrant hand-crocheted patches that offer a homespun take on LV’s famed monogram flower print. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also a wide crocheted collar with a large flower affixed to its left side.
If you’re looking to score one of these jackets, you’ll have to be willing to shell out a pretty penny and be tapped in to the LV network as well. The jacket retails for $37,000 USD, and isn’t available in stores — it’s made to order, so you’ll have to contact the brand itself for purchasing info.
