Give Virgil Abloh the wheel and he’s going to drive at max speed. The Off-White designer and newly minted Louis Vuitton Men’s Artistic Director made his debut on Thursday in Paris at the Palais Royal, and boy, did the American DJ-turned-fashion industry unicorn give us plenty to unpack with the spring-summer 2019 collection.
First up? The celebrities. In case you didn’t know, Abloh has served as a “creative collaborator” (not the creative director) to Kanye West for years, and the two are super tight. In true bro form, they hugged it out at the end of the show, with Abloh running into West’s arms once the final model hit the runway.
The front row also included Calabasas’s finest, aka Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Travis Scott.
