To further commemorate the release of Virgil Abloh‘s Spring/Summer 2019 debut collection that was inspired by the 1932 classic film The Wizard of Oz, Louis Vuitton has installed a psychedelic window installation at its New York 5th Avenue space and Los Angeles Rodeo Drive. Standing 12 stories high, the eye-grabbing artwork portrays a multi-colored model inside a display box. “In the spirit of the collection, the windows consist of technicolor skies, fields of flowers and the yellow brick road. Additionally, an oversized, colorful figure stands inside the store creating an optical illusion that extends onto the street and throughout the store,” said the label in a statement.

Accompanying the stateside installations is a massive sculpture at Japan’s Harajuku station that mimics the likeness of the window piece and is created in a crouching pose. Check out our photos of the window installation at the NYC outpost above and Abloh’s photos of the sculpture below.
