French luxury brand Louis Vuitton has launched its £1,980 ‘Paint Can Bag’ from late director Virgil Abloh’s final collection. Ever the collection went live online, it has drawn mixed reactions from fashion fans on social media.
According to the brand, the LV Paint Can Bag has room enough to hold two phones and other personal items, and comes in “six-eye grabbing colours from designer Virgil Abloh‘s signature palette” – Blue, red, yellow, green, purple and orange.
The bag, which first debuted at the late designer’s posthumous Men’s Fall/Winter 2022 runway show in January, has a coated canvas and cowhide leather along with microfibre lining, silver-colour hardware, and a removable and adjustable strap. The collection is described as Abloh’s “boy ideology,” paired with a note that reads “dreams can come true.”
