We’re taking the first exit off the Black Friday/Cyber Monday freeway this week, which means one thing and one thing only: ’tis the season to actually start thinking about what you’re gifting those nearest + dearest to you these holidays. Anyone looking for the most extravagant stocking stuffer should look no further than the Louis Vuitton “LV Archives” socks set.
As much as they’ve been memed into oblivion for various reasons which may or may not contain grains of truth, socks are a brilliant Christmas present for any functioning adult. The step above that are nice socks; and the step above that, of course, are designer socks. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs to get their shit together, start eating Special K for breakfast with a dollop of probiotic yogurt, and watch some Mad Men. Or put simply, grow up.
Presenting what is potentially the most practical Louis Vuitton product to date, the LV Archives Socks Set include six pairs in total, each one featuring a unique design referencing themes from the late Virgil Abloh’s early shows. If nothing else, this could very well be a subtle tribute to the highly-influential artist.
Spun from pure cotton and finished with special details such as the LV initials and woven Jacquard Louis Vuitton Paris Shows signatures, this assortment of delights arrives in a monogrammed plexiglass box resembling the iconic Boite Scott. Because it just ain’t an LV release without a cool trunk/case/whatever to carry it around in.
The Louis Vuitton Archives Socks Set is now available to purchase from global boutiques and the webstore for a red-hot $3,550.
