Louis Vuitton wrote in a press release that the K-Pop group’s “ubiquitous popularity resonates worldwide and Louis Vuitton is very happy to share news of their new role within the House”. This wouldn’t be the first time the boy group wore suits from the brand, BTS wore the F/W 2021 menswear collection designed by Abloh at the 2021 Grammy Awards earlier this year.
