Louis Vuitton Steps into Summer with LV SQUAD and LV SUNSET
Sporty-chic comfort is what we’re all craving these days when it comes to post-pandemic footwear, and Louis Vuitton’s take on its Pre-Fall 2021 collection sets the laid-back tone, infused with a dose of its signature sleek sophistication. That effortless, wear-with-everything pair you reach for, no matter what you have planned? Meet the LV SQUAD and LV SUNSET, your go-to it-shoes for those lazy days of summer.
Artistic Director of Women’s Collections Nicolas Ghesquière reinvents the iconic sneaker and the easy slide-on mule with the brand’s stamp of unparalleled luxury. The LV SQUAD sneaker, which comes in low or hi-top versions, keeps casually cool in black, pink, or white cotton canvas, printed with a bold “Louis Vuitton” logo and set on a funky oversized white rubber platform sole. A third version also features a white canvas and leather top, popped with playful blue, green or pink laces and a matching colorful rubber tag. Meanwhile, the LV SUNSET takes cue from the classic slide, crafted in smooth calfskin brightened up for the season in a choice of punchy green, blue, violet, black or white. Also sporting a rubber Vuitton label, and outfitted with an anatomically-minded footbed and oversized padded Velcro strap make for an ultra-comfy stride – wherever the summer takes you.
The collection is shown off at its best in the brand’s new campaign, frolicking in the sun-soaked streets of LA on the feet of two shining digital superstars: Emma Chamberlain, Louis Vuitton’s Friend of the House, LA-based comedian, and internet phenomenon among her many titles; and Charli D’Amelio – pioneering content creator, entrepreneur and social advocate, crowned “the reigning queen of TikTok” by the New York Times. The LV SQUAD and LV SUNSET are available in all Louis Vuitton stores worldwide.
