Louis Vuitton’s latest accessories collection for men, the V Line is designed for the young and stylish city crowd with a busy lifestyle. Made from comfortable to wear and water-proof leather, the bag collection consists of the Pulse backpack, the Move messenger style bag and the Start holdall. To promote the innovative bag range, the French fashion house invited digital artist Ryoichi Kurokawa and pro skater Alex Olson to front the advertising campaign.
In a press release Louis Vuitton said “Personalities Ryoichi Kurokawa and Alex Olson embody these specific features; their lifestyles involve quick-paced and dynamic rhythm. Ryoichi, a digital artist specialized in multi-screen installations and immersive holographic works, and Alex, pro skater but also active photographer and artist, are both at the confluence of the different source of urban energy reflected in the V Line collection.”
