Livestream Louis Vuitton Men's SS19 Show Right Here
Get a live look at Virgil Abloh’s debut collection.
Virgil Abloh‘s highly anticpated debut show for Louis Vuitton Men’s is finally upon us. Arriving right in the middle of Paris Fashion Week Men’s Spring/Summer 2019 programming, info on the inspiration behind the collection is currently scarce, although we have seen a sneak peek of a new Louis Vuitton sneaker that’s been teased prior to the show.
In a recent Financial Times interview where he discussed his intentions for his work with Louis Vuitton, Abloh stated:
“I’ve talked myself around to stopping and thinking in the turbulence. The most important message is to let me just focus on making the most beautiful norm core clothes, but as luxurious as possible. … “The very first thing I made here was a T-shirt. What’s the perfect weight? Why are fashion T-shirts usually so tiny? For me, there’s a subtlety in focusing on the right shape of T-shirt and pant. I recognise that it’s boring, but the idea is to catch people off-guard and reward in some valuable way.”
The show commence at 8:30am EST today, June 21 – stay tuned to HYPEBAE to watch it unfold live in the video above. In related news, did you hear that Abloh tapped Vogue Australia’s Christine Centenera to consult on his debut Louis Vuitton collection?
