With sneakers being the new staple of every millennial, the Louis Vuitton Archlights have appeared to be the It shoe celebrities here and there have been buzzing about the past few months. They've only been in stores for two months now, but looks like many of our local celebrities have already bagged a pair. Who can blame them? There’s just something intriguing about the Archlights' futuristic-retro look. These thick-soled chunky sneakers have found an identity as everyone's new ugly-pretty sneakers of choice. You can only either hate them or love them, but you can’t deny the fact that their unique, never-before-seen design is on its way to being a sartorial hallmark of 2018.
And just when you think that it can’t get any better than that, Louis Vuitton surprises us with a new version. Can you guess what it is?
That's right, Golden Archlights—you read it right. They're not only dipped in gold, they're made of gold! And this time, it's the entire shoe and not just sections of it! Luxury at its maximum indeed. Seems too unreal to imagine, but you better believe it! Making their first appearance at The Flipside, a multi-sensory exhibition at the Old Selfridges Hotel in London, these golden babies are set to be the star of the show.
Designers like Thom Browne, Louis Vuitton, and Byredo are just some of those featured to demonstrate the essence of luxury at the event. As it has been described, this event will take flight as both an art exhibit and performance, with appearances to be made by Rambert and The HighLow in the coming weeks.
Explore through an exhibition of dystopian futures, sculptures, and rooms made to look like a music box, and experience the luxury translated through these works of art and intelligence.
The hype has certainly reached high levels, and there is no doubt that its aesthetic will be one that is pleasing to the eye. With top designers exhibiting their work, everyone is itching to see what new concepts are being brought into the realm of fashion and, of course, art. It’s going to be grandeur at the price of nothing: entrance is totally free for all! Watch out for their upcoming contemporary performances, and panel talks on the true meaning of luxury—it’ll surely be one for the books.
