Building on the success of last year's Virgil Abloh-designed Aerogram bag, Louis Vuitton has launched three new colours in the collection of calfskin city bags: grey, orange and midnight blue.
Recalling the hues and portability of their namesake airmail envelope, the bags reference the history of craftsmanship in Louis Vuitton luggage-making through the bias-cut edges and monochrome grained leather process unique to their workshops.
Travel has always stood at the heart of the French house, with the first Louis Vuitton steamer trunk designed in 1858, over 150 years ago. The luxury house's most recent artistic director, the late Virgil Abloh, also explored themes of travel within his design practice, constantly looking towards his 'inner child' to fulfil his own journey of self-exploration.
There's no doubt the Aerogram range makes an authentic connection between Louis Vuitton's archive with Abloh's ability to constantly reinterpret the codes of Louis Vuitton leather goods.
Abloh's long-running interest in points of departure and travel could be seen most recently referenced in his A/W 21 menswear presentation, and these updated styles reflect the contemporary travel requirements of agility and adaptability.
