French Fashion House, Louis Vuitton made an announcement naming BTS as their newest house ambassadors. BTS had earlier made a stylish appearance at the Grammy’s with their custom Louis Vuitton and it now looks like, maybe it was a subtle announcement.
In a press release, Louis Vuitton called BTS, “one of the most renowned and influential groups in the world,” adding that “BTS’ ubiquitous popularity resonates worldwide and Louis Vuitton is very happy to share news of their new role within the House.”
The Luxury Fashion Brand also tweeted the announcement alongside a new picture BTS sporting pastel-hued LV looks.
Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Artistic Director, Virgil Abloh also stated that he had spent time with BTS to go over creative visions and ideas for the brand and said, “I am delighted BTS are joining Louis Vuitton today.” He further added, “I am looking forward to this wonderful partnership which adds a modern chapter to the House, merging luxury and contemporary culture. I can’t wait to share all the very exciting projects we are working on.”
In response to the news, BTS stated, “Becoming global brand ambassadors for Louis Vuitton is a truly exciting moment for us”.
Louis Vuitton later released more images of BTS and few individual pictures.
Besides their music, BTS is also known for their fashion sense and they have been seen wearing various luxury brands like Dior, Gucci, Saint Laurent but this is their first time partnering with a Global Luxury Brand.
As part of this new partnership, BTS will be teaming up with Louis Vuitton on a number of special projects and are expected to be outfitted in LV in upcoming performances and appearances.
Congratulations to BTS, Louis Vuitton and Army!
