The FW2021 collection gives off kind of a schizophrenic vibe. Without looking into its roots, you may even think Louis Vuitton’s creative director Virgil Abloh has lost his mind completely, as he brings about a parade of archetypal figures including a hobo and a hotelier, an art gallery owner and an artist, an architect, a student, an athlete and many, many more. Yet there’s a strong single idea behind all this: our society judges a book by its cover way too often, be it our clothes, our hairstyle or the colour of our skin.
Fighting these stereotypes is all the FW2021 collection strives for. The result is a cultural melting pot adorned with a compilation of colours, skirts, man purses for both travel and everyday wear, flowers or the iconic Louis Vuitton Monogram motif.
The power of minimalism and all-time classics
Looking at this collection, the first thing you’ll see is the clash of luxurious elegance and relaxed streetwear style. Here at LP-life.com, our fashion editors' choice would clearly be the long, bright red coat combined with a sensible carryall, button-up shirt and tie and shiny black footwear. Less really is more sometimes.
Another look worth mentioning is the timeless pinstripe suit that you cannot go wrong with. Just grab a cup of coffee-to-go, your favourite newspaper and off to a meeting you go!
Hit the streets!
All of this sophisticated elegance meets its opposite in relaxed streetwear pieces popping up all over the FW2021 collection. Baseball caps, athletic sweatshirts, wide-leg jeans, quilted jackets, sweaters or sneakers? Bring it on! And if you miss the good ol‘ nineties, now’s the time to bring them back – in your wardrobe, that is.
