Sotheby’s LV x Nike by Virgil Abloh auction raises US$25M
This is just one more reason why Abloh is an eternal centerpiece in all that matters in design.
Sotheby's auction of the first 200 pairs of his Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 collab has just been completed, having raised US$25.3 million for Abloh’s Post Modern Scholarship Fund.
Each of the 200 pairs was bought for US$100K, except for the men's size 5 pair, wich was the highest-value item, selling for US$352,800.
If you're wondering why this silhouette has become so special, the LV AF1 is built with the brand's signature monogram in leather and printed with the Off-White logo on the soles and laces.
Those who bought a pair will receive the kicks in an exclusive orange LV pilot case, in addition to immortalizing an Abloh creation that can never be reproduced.
Anyway, the LV x Nike partnership announced that it intends to release new uppers soon, so stay tuned while you check your balance in the bank.
See how you can boost any look with the right kicks.
