"There’s no limit... life is so short that you can’t waste even a day subscribing to what someone thinks you can do versus knowing what you can do"

- Virgil Abloh

When Virgil Abloh took his first bow for Louis Vuitton in June 2018, fashion changed forever. The newest addition to the Ultimate Collection, Louis Vuitton: Virgil Abloh honors the designer’s boundary-breaking creativity on and off the runways. With over 250 stunningly iconic images and personal reflections from Abloh’s inner circle, including Nigo, Naomi Campbell, Luka Sabbat, Kendall Jenner and Kid Cudi, the book is the definitive chronicle of a partnership that redefined not only dress codes but their very vocabulary. The Ultimate features a special-edition removable glossary highlighting the numerous sneaker collaborations Virgil Abloh spearheaded during his time at Louis Vuitton. 

This Ultimate edition of Louis Vuitton: Virgil Abloh is packaged in a carton box, available in four colors*, inspired by the container installation from the Louis Vuitton 2021 spring/summer menswear show in Miami.

Made in Italy, the Ultimate edition includes a clamshell in printed silk with foil stamping.

White gloves and a large signature canvas tote are included with each purchase from Assouline’s Ultimate Collection.

**Please note it is not possible to choose the color of the carton box.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR 

Anders Christian Madsen is a fashion writer who contributes to international fashion publications and has served as Fashion Critic for British Vogue since 2017. He works as a consultant to leading fashion houses and sits on committees devoted to emerging talent. Raised in Denmark, he graduated from the London College of Fashion in 2009 and began his career as Fashion Features Director at i-D Magazine. Madsen was a close collaborator of Virgil Abloh throughout his time as Men’s Artistic Director at Louis Vuitton from 2018- 2021. 

Assouline and Louis Vuitton are releasing the title with two collectible covers within the Assouline Classics Collection. One taken from the Louis Vuitton’s spring-summer 2022 spinoff show in Miami, with an image of a young child bounding towards a striking red Louis Vuitton hot air balloon, emblematic of the significance of youth in Virgil’s work. The other sports cartoon artwork by cultural icon/artist Reggieknow, who illustrated the now cult characters for Virgil’s spring-summer 2021 show (a video starring animated puppets dubbed ‘The Adventures of Zooom with Friends’)— the first time Louis Vuitton ever collaborated with a Black artist on the runway. The book will also be available in an Ultimate Collection; packaged in a collectible box referencing Virgil’s use of shipping crates in the spring-summer 2021 collection. The Ultimate also features a special, separate insert that serves as compendium for every single sneaker Virgil designed for Louis Vuitton, including this year’s new Air Force 1s.
