The duck is a recurring and important creature in NIGO’s design vocabulary. It references his favorite duck restaurant in Tokyo which has served a very traditional style of cooking for over 300 years. When the inevitable NIGO X Virgil X Louis Vuitton juggernaut-of-a-collab came to fruition in 2020, this was one of the pieces that emerged. On the surface, it is a whimsical reimagining of a classic Louis bag, but at its core, it is so much more. It represents Virgil’s profound ability to connect disparate cultures, and both he and NIGO’s shared ability to articulate it. It is a symbol of an unprecedented and unrepeatable partnership that reflects how luxury can relate to a new generation.
