DETAILS

The Louis Vuitton and Nike “Air Force 1” by Virgil Abloh exhibition is an interactive exhibition rooted in the spirit of collaboration. Through the lens of creativity, both Louis Vuitton and Nike are celebrated as cultivating and inspiring forces for youth culture, which were fundamental principles to Virgil Abloh. As a high-fashion designer born out of a streetwear community shaped by hip-hop, Abloh erased the borders between the two spheres and used his platform to celebrate the historical influence of Black subcultures on mainstream fashion. His work was, above all, about humanity and unity.

The immersive exhibition will offer an in-depth view of the sneakers through the designer’s own inimitable lens. For example, drawing on the surrealist ideas central to Abloh’s practice, the 47 editions of the Louis Vuitton and Nike “Air Force 1” dialogue will be exhibited in motion on magnetised walls and in animated holographic displays with cues to breakdancing. A treehouse will pay tribute to Abloh’s affinity for the childlike mind.
