Since taking over as Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director, Virgil Abloh has blended high fashion with his trademark streetwear for a style that’s arguably more relevant to the modern man than what the renowned fashion house has designed in recent years.
Following his runway debut in Paris, Abloh’s SS19 accessory collection is an abundance of style. When I say abundance, I mean there are literally hundreds of accessories. Sunglasses, travel bags, backpacks, belts, necklaces, bracelets and more. Each of the new Louis Vuitton accessories is available from January 18, 2019.
What may surprise you about Virgil Abloh is that the Off-White founder has no formal fashion education. Instead, he has a degree in civil engineering and a masters degree in architecture. What may not surprise you is that Abloh is the first African American Artistic Director for the french fashion house.
Whether you love his work or see him as a Kayne of the fashion world, there’s no denying that Virgil Abloh knows his stuff. Enjoy highlights from the SS19 men’s accessory collection. You can see select items below.
