A Louis Vuitton x NBA collaboration is on its way

Louis Vuitton’s list of successful (read: sold out) collaborations is impressive and apparently, it’s not done surprising us just yet.

The Parisian fashion house has just announced what might be its most sought-after collaboration since Kim Jones’ game-changing Supreme moment: a colossal, first-of-its-kind multi-year collaboration with the NBA.

“We have done other collaborations with other fashion houses before, but nothing at this level and at this scale,” Marc Tatum, NBA’s Deputy Commissioner explained. “We know from social media that our fans follow collabs and are big fans of the Louis Vuitton brand. We know that they’re going to be excited about this new partnership and collaboration.”

Spearheaded by Virgil Abloh, the collection will feature luggage, clothing and accessories for the basketball brand. According to Mark Tatum, the items will be inspired by the three defining moments in an athlete’s life: the press conference, the match and travel.

While the majority of the line-up is currently under wraps, the storied French fashion house did unveil a custom trophy case for the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy, complete with brass fixtures and wrapped in the always-recognizable Monogram canvas.

For anyone wanting to get their hands on a piece; mark your calendars for October and start saving, like yesterday.
