For the first time, Louis Vuitton launches a capsule collection entirely devoted to skiing.
This collection features a complete wardrobe, suitable for the slopes or chalet, from morning to evening: limited edition ready-to-wear, accessories, shoes and skis.
Whether on the piste or on a walk, style encounters performance. Sporting a brand new LV snowflakeshaped Flocon logo, specially created for the occasion, all the ready-to-wear pieces were designed with comfort in mind, without ever compromising on technical details or style. Puffer feather-lined jackets display printed alpine landscapes at sunset and come with matching nylon leggings and pullovers. Reversible parkas in wool and silk are ideal for enjoying a breath of fresh air, while the pieces dedicated to skiing — jackets, salopettes and trousers — are cut in a stretch material and are completely waterresistant.
With hoods lined to provide warmth and softness, some parkas also boast rope belts and snap hooks inspired by rock climbers. Protective inner cuffs, multiple pockets, zipped trouser bottoms… A wide range of technical details to enable wearers to take full advantage of the snow at top speed.
Glimpses of Monogram appear here and there:
on the fleece fabric of a gilet, on the lining of a leather jacket, or even on the hood of a puffer jacket in ECONYL®. ECONYL® is a unique recyclable material made of 100% recycled nylon fibres, fully in line with Louis Vuitton’s circular creativity approach.
Ideal for a winter at altitude, sweatshirts – with and without zips – mini dresses, textured knitwear, chrome jerseys and soft furs complete the collection. Technical jersey ski trousers, as well as shiny satin jogging trousers, adapt to all winter occasions, day or night.
As for accessories, fox fur mittens and gloves are combined with woollen Monogram caps, brushed
silk and cashmere scarves, as well as hats in a variety of colours. An oversized scarf with a large
Monogram can be wrapped several times around the neck, like a cocoon.
The collection also showcases a variety of shoe models to be worn for après-ski. Inspired by rubber boots and available in two different heights, the TERRITORY boot features a notched sole, a metallic clasp, a Vuitton rubber label and beautiful Gommato leather. As for the POLAR ankle boots, they come in water-proof lined nylon or in Gommato leather, and are set on a wedge heel that’s perfect for a walk in Gstaad or Courchevel.
Last but not least, the collection unveils an innovative ski design. Available as numbered 200-piece limited editions, this pair of skis is made of a wooden core covered with an aluminium alloy sporting the iconic Monogram. As suitable on the slopes as they are off-piste, the skis are inspired by a trip to Courchevel. The alpine summit prints — which are also featured on certain ready-to-wear pieces — cover the base of the ski, topped by the new LV Flocon design.
To complete this exquisite technical set, a pair of high-tech ski boots have been designed, with the expertise and craftsmanship of Tecnica, for high performance results. Available in two shades and adorned with a gradation Monogram embossing and a Monogram canvas strap, the boots are equipped with a thermal heating system, supplied by a rechargeable lithium battery; Bluetooth control, and a soft and comfortable Merino wool lining.
Available in Louis Vuitton stores from the 26th November 2021.
