Explore New York City in Virgil Abloh and Louis Vuitton's retro-style video game Endless Runner

Louis Vuitton has released a retro-style video game called Endless Runner, which was inspired by Virgil Abloh's Autumn Winter 2019 show for the brand. The visuals for the game were inspired by 1980s graphics and revisits the New York City streetscape set that was built as part of Abloh's vision for the show earlier this year, where the designer recreated a corner of the city in the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris. The game sees the player control a third-person figure that runs against a parallax scrolling background built up of streetlights, shop fronts and brick walls. The small, orange glowing figure has to dodge obstacles typical of New York City such as bins, traffic cones and phone boxes and can retrieve hologram elements of the signature Louis Vuitton monogram to increase score and gain lives. To coincide with the release of the collection in stores, the brand has made the game available for you to play on their website.
