When Louis Vuitton announced their League of Legends collaboration back in September, the worlds of gaming, and fashion, were shook.
Having just dropped the collection online yesterday, the French fashion house has officially made its mark in the gaming world.
Designed by Nicolas Ghesquière, the collection is a celebration of the insanely popular game. Taking inspiration from Ghesquière’s personal interests, and the League of Legends universe, this inaugural collab pays particular homage to the characters Qiyana and Senna.
The first drop includes a new iteration of the iconic Monogram canvas bag, with a touch of the video game imprinted on it. They’ve also revisited other Louis Vuitton classic bags, including the Neverfull, Speedy and the Boite Chapeau Souple.
As for ready-to-wear, technical fabrics like scuba jersey were used as an ode to the skins worn by the League of Legends characters themselves. The collection also includes everything from accessories to shoes, with a logo-heavy Louis Vuitton Archlight sneaker, and League of Legends-branded watches.
The collection is proof that the fashion house (which counts YouTuber and certified VSCO girl Emma Chamberlain as a fan) isn’t shying away from the interests of Gen-Z.
The Louis Vuitton x League of Legends capsule collection is now available for preorder online.
