NIGO and Virgil Abloh have returned for the latest LV² collection for Louis Vuitton, continuing their collaboration from last year. The Pre-Spring 2022 collection is inspired by the two’s diverse cultural roots, as well as NIGO’s own personal collections of British subcultural dress.

The collection is a nod to Western tailoring from the 1950s and ’60s as much as it refences Japanese culture. Stand-out features include color-blocked workwear blazers, denim suits in a Monogram camouflage and a rowing blazer that sports the lining of Louis Vuitton trunks. Additionally, items throughout reference NIGO’s Human Made label, particularly through tiger head and red heart graphics.

Additionally, the LV² Pre-Spring 2022 collection extends to accessories — such as Japanese-inspired bags, and jewelry in the images of the duck, tiger and heart — and footwear. For this collection, NIGO and Virgil Abloh have updated the LV Trainer with all-over graphics and another colorway that mixes grainy leather with denim details.

Take a look through the lookbook in the gallery below.
