Editor’s Notes: The second LV × NBA line’s apparel lineup again revolves around the idea of the three dress modes of a basketball player: travel, game, and press conference.

For travel, casualwear manifests in relaxed takes on suits such as a blouson and trouser quilted in Louis Vuitton's floral motif, as well as logo-heavy hoodies and shorts, a technical parka, as well as performance trousers.

Inspired by the on-court garments worn during the game, informal blousons, shirts, and shorts are adorned in graphic multi-color letters spelling out "Louis Vuitton" — each font referencing the typeface of an NBA team — while shorts are emblazoned with the House’s logo in a varsity-style font for additional sporty flair.

For the press conference wardrobe, formalwear further interprets a '90s sensibility by way of a boxy black suit and overcoat. A graphic embellished leather bomber is a nod to the varsity classics worn by basketball vets and newcomers alike.

For the 2021 NBA Finals champions, Louis Vuitton has again devised a monogrammed case for the Larry O’Brien Trophy, complete with two sizes of Virgil Abloh-designed basketball manufactured by Wilson to meet game ball standards.
