Just like in Wave 1, the second wave of the Louis Vuitton Squared collection sees Nigo and Virgil giving the London Mod-era dandy-inspired pieces a Tokyo twist. This second drop, which is slated for August 28, comprises ready-to-wear apparel, bags, accessories and footwear. Here’s a rundownof every item within the collection, including their retail prices.
Wave 2 offers a selection of leather goods that includes a mini tote, soft trunk and backpack that return with refreshed paneling and design. Selected pieces receive cartoon animal charms, a design aesthetic we have come to expect from this collaboration. The “dripping” leather patchwork is a firm nod to Billionaire Boys Club and Icrecream, brands Nigo co-founded with Pharrell Williams.
The apparel collection stays true to the London subculture stylings of the Mod-era dandy. You won’t miss the oversized LV Damier checks and monogram pattern all across the ready-to-wear apparel collection. In this Wave, the collection offers Mod suits, duffle coats and a fishtail parka. The flight jacket bearing a Mount Fuji print with the “LV Made” logo and “Louis Vuitton” in Human Made brand typography is a fitting ode to the collaboration.
A new wave means new accessories. Wave 2 offers a wider range of silver jewelry for those looking to add some bling to their wardrobe. With options ranging from S$715 to S$2,070, you are bound to find a piece that fits your budget and style. Wave 2 also sees the introduction of a bear emblem, another ode to Nigo’s Human Made.
Footwear from Wave 2 has gotten much more rugged. This time you can get a series of boots with uppers featuring sporty Damier leather or denim bearing the Louis Vuitton monogram.
Selected sold out items from Wave 1 will be making a return as well. Most notable is the Giant Damier Waves Monogram Denim Jacket in black and blue, which will be restocking in limited quantities.
Wave 2 of the Louis Vuitton Squared collection drops on August 28. Shop the pieces at Louis Vuitton stores or at www.louisvuitton.com.
