Louis Vuitton Opens New ‘White Canvas: LV Trainer in Residence’ Exhibition in Milan

Louis Vuitton has opened an all-new exhibition, titled White Canvas: LV Trainer in Residence, dedicated to the first line in a series of artistic reinventions of its LV Trainer.

On view from February 24 to March 16, the exhibition launches inside Louis Vuitton’s Milan store at Garage Traversi with three renovated editions of the emblematic sneaker. Curated by Sky Gellatly, the initial installment features iterations made by Ecuador-born, New York-bred graffiti artist Lady Pink, Puerto Rico-hailing subway artist Lee Quiñones and the Estate of Rammellzee. An invitation for creative collaboration, the exhibition expands upon Louis Vuitton’s deep-rooted relationships in the artistic spheres.

The ongoing project, which was initially formed by former Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh, provides artists with an all-white leather low-top LV Trainer as their blank canvas. The silhouette, which Abloh originally designed for Spring/Summer 2019, merges classic the basketball-shoe shape with the savoir-faire of the French fashion house. Now a Maison essential, the sneaker is available in both low-top and high-top constructions.

Take a look at Louis Vuitton’s inaugural White Canvas: LV Trainer in Residence exhibition above. The exhibited trainers will be available for purchase in limited quantities, exclusively at the Milan store.
