Paying homage to the late great Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton’s temporary residency in Sydney will bring back some of the brand leading designs from Spring-Summer 2019 to Spring-Summer 2022. The space will house a floor to ceiling statue of Virgil, and mark the return of over 40 pairs of LV Trainer sneakers, including a special 1 of 100 samples exclusive to the Sydney boutique. Other exclusives available throughout the pop-up include 1.1 Millionaire Sunglasses in Purple and the famous Monogram Kite. Visitors are invited to experience the collections from the 15th of December, but you’ll have to be quick as these pieces never hang around for long.
Louis Vuitton Temporary Residency Sydney
Date: December 15th, 2021 – March 15th, 2022
Address: 138 Pit Street Sydney, Australia

The special edition LV Trainer sneakers that headline the event are made exclusively from upcycled LV Trainer material, and it’s visible in the shoe’s use of mix and match bright colours and highlights. An ideology that stays true to Virgil’s Summer 2021 campaign where upcycling was brought to the forefront in each design.
Alongside the exclusive sneaker, a brand new silhouette will debut. Dubbed the LV Runner Tatic the shoe will be available in a special green colourway for launch with luxurious suedes, leathers, and meshes used throughout the construction. A large reflective Louis Vuitton Monogram Flowers on the heel.
Over 20 colourways of the 1.1 Millionaire Sunglasses return, taking inspiration from those worn in Al Capone’s Chicago – the stomping ground of Virgil Abloh, Kanye West, and Don C. Also returning is the famous LV Kite, featured in Virgil’s very first show in Paris and the most recent show in Miami. Six are available and House admirers will appreciate the technical nylon construction featuring an all-over Monogram print, along with the embossed Monogram canvas carry case presented in a standout red shade.
