The NBA and Louis Vuitton have teamed up for a new capsule collection.

In honor of the crowning of the 2020 NBA Champions, Louis Vuitton has unveiled a men’s wear capsule collection by Virgil Abloh.

According to an exclusive report by WWD, the capsule is part of a three-year partnership with the NBA. The deal was originally revealed in January.

“Fashion muses aren’t predictable,” Abloh said in a statement. “Ideas of luxury can be found in the sports world and its champions as much as in traditional forms of artistry. This collection celebrates the cultural contribution of basketball and its diverse characters and the idea of relatability as a force of unity today.”

The collection includes shoes, bags, ready-to-wear and jewelry featuring the NBA logo. It is divided into three sections inspired by a player’s wardrobe:

  • Casual travel pieces like track suits;
  • Game arrival outfits like monogram jeans, T-shirts and leather jackets; and
  • Press conference, which features more tailored looks.

Along with the collection, Louis Vuitton has also created a matching double-door wardrobe trunk to house the line. The collection goes on sale Nov. 20.
