These LouisVuitton accessories, and one coat, were inspired by moving blankets — and luxed up with a shimmering monogram.

The accessories, and one coat, were inspired by moving blankets — and luxed up with a shimmering monogram.

The new Felt Line, which was teased in the film for Louis Vuitton’s men’s collection in January, consists of three bags that bring to mind Joseph Beuys sculptures, but with the LV monogram shimmering into silvery life on the surface when viewed from certain angles.

Lurex tufting is the secret to the now-you-see-it, now-you-don’t pattern, while the robust-looking felt backdrop is comprised of 43 percent organic cotton, 20 percent recycled wool and other fibers, with a lining of 100 recycled polyester sourced from the brand’s existing stocks. Chains and corners on Soft Trunk models were produced using 70 percent recycled plastic, while the leather straps and handles are certified for an environmental method of tanning.

Prices for the items, which are expected in Vuitton stores on July 16, range from 2,000 euros for an extra-small Keepall to 4,100 euros for a full-sized weekender. A tailored coat in the same fabric that featured in the collection film will also be available in limited quantities at 4,100 euros.

For spring 2021, he unveiled LV Trainer Upcycling sneakers in five colorways — all crafted entirely from upcycled LV Trainer material.

“We also target the use of existing stocks of raw materials, in order to preserve natural resources. This is often done by Virgil Abloh in his collections,” said Christelle Capdupuy, Louis Vuitton’s global head of sustainability. “Today, we’re furthering our commitments by extending our sustainable development approach to all of raw materials with the goal of reaching 100 percent responsibly sourced raw materials by 2025.”

She noted that by the end of 2020, 52 percent of Vuitton’s raw materials were already responsibly sourced and among them, 80 percent of the leather used came from LWG-certified tanneries and 67 percent of cotton was certified.In addition, Vuitton aims to recycle or reuse 100 percent of materials used for its fashion shows, and it reached a 93 percent threshold last year, Capdupuy added. headtopics.com
