Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton SS 19 Debut: Streetwear
Virgil Abloh—who was hired in March as the new artistic director of menswear at Louis Vuitton—debuted his first collection for the fashion house in Paris.
The Ghanian-American and Off-White founder is the first Black artistic director at Vuitton, so this marked a historic collection, an ode to diversity and streetwear.
This season the casting included the below talents:
ASAP NAST, BAKAR SHARIFF, BLONDEY MCCOY, DEV HYNES, KID CUDI, LASH, LUCIEN CLARKE, LUCIEN SMITH, OCTAVIAN ESSIE, PLAYBOI CARTI, STEVE LACY and THEOPHILUS LONDON.
