Whether it be a crisp white tee, a pair of denim, or a peacoat, we all have the wardrobe essentials that we keep going back to. For Louis Vuitton’s fall-winter 2019 pre-collection, the fashion house sees the launch of Staples Edition, a new lime developed by men’s artistic director Virgil Abloh. The collection aims to refine the wardrobe staples and accessories that form our day-to-day outfits.

The menswear items arrive in a range consisting of hoodies, suit jackets, coats/puffers, denim jackets all elevated with Louis Vuitton’s craftsmanship and design. The detailing of the fabrication is what sets this collection apart, only the finest materials were sourced for each piece. Looking at the camel colored hoodie and peacoat, it is made from cashmere with 'LV' branding stitched onto a button. A raincoat, trousers, cargo pants, chinos, shorts, sunglasses, bags and more will round out the complete Staples Edition by LV collection when it launches on May 3. In the meantime, you can pre-order items at LV stores.
