Virgil Abloh has given the world its first look at the highly anticipated collection between Louis Vuitton and Nigo, dubbed "LV²."

Speaking with Vogue, he says that the collaborative process taught him about Japanese precision and generosity. The Artistic Director of Menswear for LV also talked about the inspiration of Americana and denim in the collection as well as Nigo's old school brand Ice Cream, which finds its influences dripping onto bags in the collection. Finally, Abloh says the collection is meant for all ages and took the time to clarify his "streetwear is dead" comment by saying it undergoes a cycle and process of death and reinvention.

Read the full Vogue interview here and check out the looks below. We'll have to wait and see when this collection releases and if there will be more collections in the future under the same "LV²" moniker. During Paris Fashion Week, Abloh teased an unreleased Off-White x Air Jordan 5 in beige.
