When you return to the office, are you going to make a grand entrance with a statement? What better way to do that than rolling with the look of an NBA player walking into an arena in front of the television cameras on game night?
The Louis Vuitton–NBA collaborative, the LV x NBA men’s fashion collection, is here for you. The line went on sale this weekend, so you can start to piece together an outfit featuring the NBA logo on a $3,400 suit jacket; a $1,210 pair of trousers; some $1,280 chunky-soled, lace-up leather shoes; the $790 gold sunglasses; and the classic touch of a $2,060 chain with a Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy pendant.
You may have a boss, but you could enter the workplace like a boss with that look filled with items that feature the NBA logo on familiar Louis Vuitton designs. French fashion meets American baller.
“Fashion muses aren’t predictable,” Louis Vuitton Artistic Director Virgil Abloh said in a statement. “Ideas of luxury can be found in the sports world and its champions as much as in traditional forms of artistry. This collection celebrates the cultural contribution of basketball and its diverse characters and the idea of relatability as a force of unity today.”
There will be more to come, with Louis Vuitton and the NBA pairing up for a three-year partnership, which was announced in March and teased last month when the real NBA championship trophy was delivered in a Louis Vuitton trunk.
For now, rock that $6,100 blue leather jacket with a $5,350 backpack – or a more reasonable $3,800 one so that you can get the $2,430 phone box.
