Virgil Abloh’s hiring at Louis Vuitton has shattered the glass ceiling on what is possible for streetwear designers in the current and future fashion industry climate. No longer confined to a proverbial bubble…the stigma or preconceived notions are non-existent. The Abloh x LV partnering for the men’s SS19 collection is a boyhood-to-manhood journey to be told in three chapters.
Connected through the tale of the Wizard of Oz; Alieyth (3 years old) and Jack (2) depict the innocence of childhood and the purity of said innocence. While Leo James David (7), Evan Rosado (12), and Luke Prael (16) illustrate the boyhood adolescence and the leading of the dreams and desires of a generation. The collection can be previewed below while the vastly expansive collection is available currently on Louis Vuitton.
