The latest collection by LV is still influenced by an athletic inspiration. The oversized sportswear style has been embraced by the French luxury brand, which has drawn inspiration from American football. The pieces arrived just in time for the NFL season to conclude, and they're decorated with a variety of jersey-like attire.
This intarsia football pullover is one such example. It's a loose fit in a black and yellow motif. The LV logo is weaved jacquard style on the front, with a jersey-inspired design for “Vuitton” and the number “OO” on the back. The jersey design is kept to the letter, with a raised rubber graphic on the chest.
Louis Vuitton's classic Monogram Canvas is transformed into football leather with calfskin suede lining for another item, while there are more styles including a slim-fit tracksuit, camo pants and a jersey dress.
Louis Vuitton has always been a stylish brand, but these latest pieces from the collection look like something you would wear for a trip to the gym.
The athletic trend has been a long lasting one for this season and Louis Vuitton is clearly not going to be left behind – no matter how ridiculous it may seem – as they continue to take inspiration from anything that's fit for the current trends.
Athletes have already been spotted wearing the collection, but the real question is whether or not it will reach a broader audience.
Now that football season is over, it's time for basketball to take its place in the ring. One can only wonder what sport LV will be inspired by next year.
However, the big question remains: would you wear these pieces?
The sweaters are now available via Louis Vuitton’s website for $1,930 USD each.
