An army of full on grey looks opened the Louis Vuitton show on Thursday. Proof that Virgil Abloh had stepped away from the more streetwear inspired looks and turned to real menswear tailoring and dressing. Suit jackets were oversized, pants were roomy and perfectly pleated. The looks had structured, 3D details to them, some even looked completely 3D, like a short puffer inspired coat with the LV monogram pressed into it. Or a cropped body warmer worn over a tailored suit jacket. Looks with metallic/silver tones, a series of purple looks and quite a few nude/camel ensembles followed up. As the finale existed of a flag printed (including flags from all the people in the office) outfits. Everything took place in a show area turned into a New York sidewalk, the exact set from Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean as this show was an ode to Michael Jackson. Or as Virgil Abloh put it “Not to make costume, but to take him as backdrop, to make a point about the humanity in his vision. I wanted humanity in the forefront”.
Oversized, roomy and XL; LV makes sure you’re more than ready to beat the FW2019 cold.
