We know we’re late to this Virgil Abloh fashion show.
In March, Louis Vuitton announced Ghanaian-American, Virgil Abloh as the artistic director of men’s wear. Furthermore, LV is one of the oldest and most powerful European houses in the luxury business.
Virgil’s first-ever show with Louis Vuitton was the talk of the fashion world. The show was for the SS19 fashion line and it was “The vocabulary according to Virgil Abloh.”
Moreover, he did a pamphlet to explain the line. Therefore, in the pamphlet Virgil provides insight into himself and the collection via a list of definitions for terms such as “collaboration,” “designer,” “graphics,” “millennial,” “normcore,” “production,” “streetwear,” and beyond. He also breaks down various fashion items ranging from bags and denim, to jewelry, sunglasses, sweats, and timepieces.
ASAP Nast, Playboi Carti, Kid Cudi, Steve Lacy were some of the big faces that modeled for Virgil‘s first Louis Vuitton collection.
