Dear gamers, your favourite game has gotten a chic makeover. Louis Vuitton has partnered up with video game developer Riot Games to produce a capsule collection in a league of its own, inspired after the universes of the action-strategy video game League of Legends. Featuring both original references to the game characters and unique elements that personally inspired Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women’s Collections, this unisex collection lets you fly your inner nerd flag high. And proudly.
Fronted by a unique Monogram Louis Vuitton x League of Legends canvas specially designed for this collaboration, the monogram can be seen across some of the house’s iconic and New Classic bags in various styles, from the contemporary Neverfall tote to the coveted Boite Chapeau souple crossbody bag and versatile Bumbag Dauphine beltbag. Fans of the game can also look forward to the collection’s sleek ready-to-wear looks in scuba jersey and structured cotton and accessories emblazoned in the eye-catching monogram, paired with the brand’s emblematic Archlight sneakers, Star Trail ankle boots and recent favourite, Beaubourg platform derby shoes.
And that’s not all. Following the October release of the first Louis Vuitton Prestige skin designed for League of Legends’ champion assassin Qiyana last year, the capsule introduces a new Louis Vuitton tri-pointed signature inspired by Qiyana’s ring blade, reproduced in silk print scarf versions and as keychain pendants on bags and bracelets. For those looking for something a little more subtle, look to the collection’s watch, which features a leather monogram strap and the ring blade-inspired signature across its chromatic bronze dial.
If that hasn’t got your little gamer senses tingling, then we’re sure this next part will. The capsule also unveils the second long-awaited Prestige skin envisioned for Senna, showing the League of Legends enchantress and marksman decked out in the maison’s emblematic interlocking four-petal flower pattern. You know you love it.
The Louis Vuitton x League of Legends capsule collection is now available online and in Louis Vuitton boutiques across Singapore.
