With the Winter Olympics currently underway, there couldn’t be a better time for the collection to drop. The three-time gold medalist revealed the collaboration was formed in partnership with Virgil Abloh with the luggage set, including a snowboard and guitar case – neither previously created by the Maison – as well as a Keepall and Horizon hard side carry on. There’s a commemorative hand-signed snowboard from the American snowboarder’s brand ‘Whitespace’.

The pieces were developed at Louis Vuitton’s atelier in Marsaz (France), where six artisans worked over 250 hours to complete the job. The project required around 100 steps to assemble, much of which was done by hand.
