Virgil Abloh‘s debut for Louis Vuitton will be showing in a few hours time and the anticipation is at a fever-pitch. The French house has decided to showcase a few of the accessories ahead of the show, alongside a tiny glimpse at the clothing.

Utilizing the standard Vuitton shapes, the key difference in these accessories is the continuation of the clear theme first seen in Abloh’s collab with Rimowa. The holdall also used clear chain links, which also appear on the blue clear backpack — both of which seem ideally made for Instagram.

Elsewhere there’s an attaché case, tie-dye effect coat and trunk, all of which prominently featuring the LV logo throughout. Take a look through the gallery above to see more. Abloh’s first show for Louis Vuitton will take place on June 21 at 8.30 a.m. EDT.
