After Gucci triumphed above Balenciaga and others as 2017’s most bought and searched brand according to Lyst’s Index report with Business of Fashion, it looks like Louis Vuitton will have to try and come out swinging in 2018 if they want to be crowned the industry’s leading label. However, with a closer look at Nicolas Ghesquière’s – the house’s creative director – take on the chunky sneaker trend we might be able to tell if the luxury retail company is on the right tracks for the rest of the year.
The Archlight sneaker that comes as a part of Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection experiences a caricatured upper that sits beneath a heavily exaggerated tongue but above the soon to become signature shaped outsole. As for visuals, we see the pair embrace a wide array of colours such black on black, futuristic greys mixed with pristine whites, and even a white base coat adorned by the renowned Louis Vuitton monogram.
Take a look at the sneakers below, if you like the look of them then save up $1,090 and head over to Louis Vuitton’s flagship locations, as well as this the pair will be available at a few other select retailers so stay on the lookout.
