Gone are the days of the ‘It’ bag. This season, fashion’s collective focus has fallen farther south, specifically just below the ankle.
Meet Archlight – Louis Vuitton Archlight, a new shoe joining the special class of street style sneakers. These chunky runners strode straight off the Spring/Summer 2018 catwalks and onto to the feet of fashion editors and style influencers, including Dubai’s Diala Makki.

Using a mix of technical fabrics, an unusual design that features a low ankle contrasted by a prominent tongue, and a multitude of colourways from silver to the signature Louis Vuitton monogram the sneaker embraces Nicolas Ghesquière’s signature aesthetic: energetic, innovative and futuristic with a hint of nostalgia.

“We are all walking around in sneakers today and I thought it would be nice to pair them with extravagant ready-to-wear pieces?” Says Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière. “What better than mixing 18th century clothing from France and Britain?”
With its iconic design and growing celeb following, scoop up a pair before your favourite colourway sells out.
And they will sell out.
