Thanks to Louis Vuitton‘s Instagram Story, we have a look at designer du jour Virgil Abloh settling in to his new position at the storied fashion house. On his very first day on the job, Abloh settles in to his monogram-emblazoned office, begins work explaining his design impetus, and gathers the team around a selection of product imagery (blurred out, of course). “The biggest goal … is to start so people can understand the new vocabulary.” the designer notes. “I wanna introduce a hardware that’s native to the garment.”

Watch Abloh in action below.

Most recently, Abloh was granted a spot on Time Magazine‘s 100 list.
