Virgil Abloh, the man behind the Off-White debuted his first-ever collection as Louis Vuitton’s men’s artistic director. You can check out the Spring/Summer 2019 show here or at the label’s official website.
After the even, Abloh spoke to WWD about his new role with the label and what the meant to him.
“To me, this is like my first show. Everything was sort of leading up to this. This is ‘life’s work’ territory, to distill, to be metaphoric in a poetic way,” he said, before comparing the show to Martin Margiela’s game-changing debut. “For me it’s the same, but I gotta find myself, so this is myself on display and it’s simply about letting people see my silhouette.”
This is a monumental moment not only for the entire fashion industry. Virgil Abloh, the 37-year-old creative became LV’s first black artistic director within the label’s 164-year history.
