Assouline Coffee Table Book Louis Vuitton: Virgil Abloh (Classic Balloon Cover)
When Virgil Abloh took his first bow for Louis Vuitton in June 2018, fashion changed forever. The newest addition to the Classics 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.
Made in Italy, the Classics collection editions are available in two different silk hardcovers. One cover features a cartoon artwork from Virgil’s spring-summer 2021 show by cultural icon and artist Reggieknow, and the other cover is taken from Virgil Abloh for Louis Vuitton’s spring-summer 2022 spinoff show in Miami.

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.
