Virgil Abloh once again steals the limelight with the release of “The Giant” and more interesting pieces. Hold on to your horses because this one’s about to change the game.
LOUIS VUITTON NOTEBOOK MINI JULES - $250 (approximately PHP 12,500)
For those notebook and Louis Vuitton collectors out there, this product is definitely worth buying for (even if it costs a lot!). It is a set of 4 mini notebooks that has the Monogram canvas printed with stickers that were inspired by the world’s great cities. The pages are crafted from high-quality paper bearing the iconic LV watermark (I guess it will be quite hard to write on these pages)! It retails at $250 and its size is just slightly bigger than a calling card! Would you buy it?
LOUIS VUITTON COLORED PENCILS POUCH – $900 (approximately PHP 45,000)
Yes, you read it right! Louis Vuitton now offers a 40 - piece colored pencil set placed on a foldable pouch which bears the Louis Vuitton Monogram. Each colored pencil has a Louis Vuitton watermark (super fancy!) and a leather strap to keep the colored pencils in place. Also, the pouch comes with an LV Circle hanging ring. If you are planning to purchase the notebooks, might as well get this colored pencil set too! Why not use an LV colored pencil on an LV notebook? I guess, two LV’s wouldn’t hurt…or would it? (it’s up to your wallet).
LOUIS VUITTON MONORAM GIANT VOLLEYBALL - $2,650 (approximately PHP 130,000)
Here comes “The Giant.”
Abloh really steps up the game by releasing Louis Vuitton’s take on the summer beach volleyball. Well, this is not your ordinary volleyball because it costs over 150,000 pesos! Who will buy such luxurious sports item? Well, apparently, a lot of people wanted to lay their hands on this gem because it’s already sold out and they are planning to have it restocked! This volleyball carries an LV’s customary two-tone monogram print. It is made from leather, canvas and cotton. The Louis Vuitton Monogram Giant Volleyball also comes with a net bag with a black and white leather monogram carrying handle and purple mesh. The play of colors really makes it stand out aside from its whopping price. It looks so good that you might not use it for playing.
