Louis Vuitton has unveiled its latest exhibition, “White Canvas: LV Trainer in Residence,” which features the first series of artistic reinventions of the iconic LV Trainer. The Milan store at Garage Traversi will host the exhibition from February 24 to March 16, where visitors can see three renovated versions of the emblematic sneaker.
Curated by Sky Gellatly, the debut exhibition highlights works by Lady Pink, a graffiti artist born in Ecuador and raised in New York; Lee Quiñones, a subway artist from Puerto Rico; and the Estate of Rammellzee. The LV Trainer is the artists’ blank canvas, a white leather low-top sneaker originally designed by former Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh for the Spring/Summer 2019 collection. It combines the classic shape of a basketball shoe with the exquisite craftsmanship of the French fashion house.
The exhibition is an invitation for creative collaboration and expands on Louis Vuitton’s longstanding relationships with the artistic community. Visitors can purchase the limited edition exhibited trainers at the Milan store. The LV Trainer is now an essential part of Louis Vuitton’s Maison, available in both low-top and high-top constructions.
