Off-White’s very own, Virgil Abloh experiences his first show as Louis Vuitton’s menswear artistic director.
Also, this is one of the most highly anticipated events since he was given the position at LV. The 37-year-old is the first black artistic director for the brand. Abloh made history back in March with this opportunity, a couple months after Kim Jones left the position.
This is an iconic and legendary moment for the designer. The front row at Louis Vuiton’s SS19 consist of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Travis Scott, Rihanna, ASAP Rocky and many more!
You’ll also see celebrity friends like Kid Cudi, Playboi Carti, A$AP Nast and Steve Lacy hit the runway.

The 56-piece collection fits the high class street aesthetic look we know Virgil for. You’ll see utility vest, sheer/mesh shirts, trench coats, loose trousers, jackets and hoodies. The accessories contain duffle bags, cross body bags, and croc-embossed chest rig.
Congratulations to Virgil Abloh for making history and a successful celebration.
