The most anticipated show of the season, Louis Vuitton showed its SS19 menswear collection today, the first from new creative director of menswear, Virgil Abloh.
With a long rainbow runway and an exclusive t-shirt left on the seat of every guest, it was a nod to Abloh’s more humble beginnings. Held at the Jardin du Palais-Royal, guests – including the household names from Virgil’s friends such as Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Kylie Jenner, A$AP Rocky and Takashi Murakami.
The show ended with West and Abloh hugging on the runway in tears of joy. A perfect end for the fashion outsiders who were interning at Fendi only a few years ago.
What are your thoughts on the collection?
