Tyler, the Creator has designed a collection with Louis Vuitton for Spring/Summer 2024. The legendary link-up serves as a continuation of Pharrell Williams’ vision for the House. 

The standalone collection designed by Tyler, the Creator exercises the savoir-faire of Louis Vuitton through the musician and artist’s distinct creative lens. It builds on the ongoing relationship between the brand and Tyler, who composed the soundtrack for its Fall/Winter 2022 show. 

The union sees Tyler, the Creator’s signature preppy sophistication popularised by the artist, front and centre and comprises trans-seasonal silhouettes founded in the colours and functions of Spring. Tyler’s take on Louis Vuitton can be seen in a Craggy Monogram hand-drawn by the artist himself. The motif comes in Chocolate, Vanilla, and Pastel colourways and appears across a Chocolate Down Jacket, a Vanilla Windbreaker, a denim jacket and pants set, and dungarees.

Classic chinos and shorts with pleats and fold-ups, dandy-esque shirts adorned with graphics, and gold-inspired pieces, including a towel and club cover, feature the classic Damier print used by Pharrell in his “For Lovers” collection. The focus of Tyler, the Creator when designing the collection was to craft clothing that he would wear daily. “My main focus was making things I would wear all the time. I dress the same in a meeting as I do a performance or grocery store trip, so hand drawing the monogram felt like the perfect balance to me.”

In true Tyler, the Creator style, the collection features a Tyler-approved take on the LV Dandy loafer, reimagined in Chocolate and black embossed leather. Caps and accessories also feature graphics from the collection, perfect for a sun-shielding addition to your summer wardrobe. 

Pharrell shared what the collaboration means to him. “Tyler has been my close friend and collaborator for years, and we’ve always connected on music and design. This collaboration is unique to Louis Vuitton because it’s a natural extension of our LVERS philosophy, building on our network of incredible artists and creatives. There are so many elements specific to Tyler built into these pieces, and it’s been inspiring to see him hone in on his craft and collaborate with him for this Spring collection.”

The Tyler, the Creator and Louis Vuitton collaboration sees Men’s Creative Director, Pharrell continue to fuse the worlds of fashion and music. This cultural recipe has seen the brand capture the zeitgeist with his distinct vision for the Maison. 

The Tyler, the Creator x Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2024 collection will be available to shop via the Louis Vuitton website
