Building on the youthful foundation established by Kim Jones, Virgil’s surprise appointment as Louis Vuitton’s artistic director is welcoming a new set of design sensibilities. Set to be one of the most talked-about Paris Fashion Week shows this year, insiders are expecting the Spring/Summer 2019 collection presentation to ring in a new era for the luxury fashion house. Although there is not too much info to go on at the moment, we currently do know that the range is titled “COLOR THEORY” and will see a mix of bright tones expressed on Louis Vuitton’s unfaltering classics.
Also, at 12:31, Abloh walks to Kanye West and gives a hug. The two begin to weep in celebration of Abloh’s LV debut. A closer look at the moment can be seen below via Takashi Murakami‘s Instagram post.
