Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Designer Kim Jones Collaborate with Nike with a Collection

Louis Vuitton’s men’s designer Kim Jones Collaborate with Nike into reality with a collection of brightly colored sneakers, a travel-friendly Windrunner Jacket, and a few other pieces of packable apparel.

The resulting pieces are comfortable, stylish, and (most importantly) conducive to a mobile life. And now the collection, called “Packable Sport Style,” has revealed a second iteration. It’s a much friendlier version of what we got before.

Jones’ appreciation for sneaker and streetwear culture reaches back to his childhood, and he’s incorporated those influences into his work at Louis Vuitton. Few looks are as iconically street as a tracksuit. All the way back to the days of Run-D.M.C. and before, it’s acted as the perfect canvas to mix high fashion and accessible style.

Run-D.M.C. owned it by throwing on crispy kicks and heavy chains, but in 2016 we can accessorize with even more opulent and diverse offerings. This part of the collection features riffs in gray, pink, and blue. Each piece features Nike’s famous Tech Fleece with a uniquely blended “space yarn” to offer a near-iridescent quality to the color. Jones worked with Nike to keep the styles as minimal as possible, boasting single piece construction, bonded pockets, and reverse coil zippers.

Reversible bombers will also be available as a part of the collection. There’s one in black with a dark gray reverse face, and one in a dark navy with bright blue as the alternate. Both have a built-in strap to help pack them down and hold their shape for easy transportation.

On the sneaker front, the NikeLab x Kim Jones Air Zoom LWP returns in the black-and-white colorway, along with a new colorway that features a white upper with hits of beige and an icy outsole.

Perhaps the most heartening aspect of this collection is that every style in every color is available in both men’s and women’s sizing and shapes. Although our bodies are all shaped differently, we should all have access to the same killer looks. Jones is giving all of us the dope shit and trusting us to make the choices that are right for ourselves. That’s effective and responsible design.
