Virgil Abloh Debuts His First Louis Vuitton Collection

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.
