The Creator Creates

Louis Vuitton (LV) and Tyler, The Creator have produced a men’s capsule collection that serves as a demonstration of the LVERS community: a global artistic network connected by an appreciation for the discernment and craftsmanship core to the French maison.

It is an instinctive union between the visual universe of Tyler, The Creator’s preppy sophistication with the elegant dandy dressing established by LV Men’s Creative Director Pharrell Williams.

The emblem of the collection is a Craggy monogram handdrawn by the artist himself. Rendered in chocolate, vanilla and pastels, it evokes the creamy colours and liquefied textures found in the patisserie. Hidden within LV Flowers are representations of daisies and Airedale terriers, recurring motifs of the artist.

The monogram is seen in elegant iterations such as a chocolate down jacket, a vanilla windbreaker, a denim jacket with matching denim pants and denim dungarees. A custard raincoat integrates details from the maison’s trunks, while a leather varsity jacket is embroidered with a blooming logo.

Collegiate knitwear materialises in a baby blue cable knit jumper, a preppy blouson, a blouson with a knitted contrast collar, a jacquard logo cardigan and a pink fair isle-style vest. Classic chinos and shorts with pleats and fold-ups appear alongside dandy-esque shirts adorned with graphics. Golf-inspired pieces crafted in Damier with a magnified texture in pink or grass-green take shape in a reversible windbreaker, a technical anorak and a zip cardigan and a green grass-effect fleece jacket features the Craggy monogram.

The grass-green Damier pattern is applied to the bag icons of the house embellished with pink floral-shaped leather charms and Airedale terrier-motif lining, while shoes interpret the themes of the collection.
