This Graphic Artist Has Just Stunned Everyone With His Louis Vuitton Braids

Exploring into the complex structure or pattern ideas of interlacing your hair strands, might be a time-consuming task, as there are gazillions of braid hairstyles you could try. Not to mention the endless possibilities of flexible materials such as textile yarns, beads, wire, and whatnots, you can embellish your braids with.

Talking about braid accessories, I am sure most of you know the Louis Vuitton logo. I mean, you don’t have to be particularly fashion-forward to recognize it. You may ask, what do braids have to do with Louis Vuitton’s logo? Well, you will get the answer to this from the aspiring designer and rapper, Magnus Juliano.

The 27-year-old graphic designer from Columbus, Ohio, has taken the signature design of the Louis Vuitton brand and turned it into something out of the ordinary; braid accessories. He has used 3D printing to create the colorful look. According to Magnus, it’s not only about trendy hair accessories; it’s about honoring African American roots.

What an impressive way to showcase the brand through locks!

Magnus shared photos of his extravagant hairstyle on Instagram and it resembles a look not everyone could pull off.

Using a 3D printer, the 27-year-old graphic designer created a collection of large, colorful Louis Vuitton logos, and enlisted hairstylist Ciera Jackson to style his hair in box braids. His braids then were transformed into a masterpiece with colorful beads and the logos threaded in.

Magnus posted his pictures on social media on New Years Day and tagged Louis Vuitton’s artistic director Virgil Abloh in the post.

He captioned his post:

Hey @virgilabloh can I earn an internship? I have ideas!

He went on sharing a range of photos, showing his cool and colorful braids, which he adorned with the interlocking LV monogram or one of the floral icons of the band.

In an interview with Vogue, Magnus revealed he came up with this idea in June last year, but due to the intricate designs he wanted to create, it took six months to put his idea into reality.

He said:

I failed in production a few times, so I had to keep restarting again and again. It was discouraging and I almost walked away from it, but [fortunately] I regrouped.

To create these LV accessories, he collaborated with 3-D-printing collective Eat Crow Studio, which was co-founded by Juliano’s former college professor Sarah Crowell, and her husband John.

Virgil, a brilliant black streetwear creative, is helming one of the biggest fashion houses in history. That representation makes me feel like the sky is the limit!

You definitely deserve that internship.

One wrote:

Virgil would be a fool not to get in touch with you. But if that does happen, don’t stop and keep producing. You have so much talent and authenticity you cannot be ignored. And this can work for so many other brands.

Another one added:

I can’t get over the brilliance here.

While another tagged Abloh and commented:

hire him! This is fire

Let’ wait and see if Juliano will be ‘hired’ after showcasing such creative designs!
