A selection of key looks from the Louis Vuitton Men's Fall-Winter 2019 Show.
Presented at the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris, the Men’s Fall-Winter Fashion Show was Artistic Director Virgil Abloh’s follow-up to his Louis Vuitton debut last June. Expanding on the vocabulary established in the Spring-Summer 2019 Collection, Abloh elaborated on his vision of universality and inclusivity as it is rooted in the Maison’s travel DNA.
This season, the Artistic Director turned to Michael Jackson, whose extraordinary path from humble beginnings to international stardom provided inspiration from concept to set to silhouettes. For Abloh, by maturing in from of the world, Michael Jackson became the only recorded study of a man’s sense of dress from boyhood to adulthood to play out on a globally observed stage. The leitmotif of boyhood has been employed by Virgil Abloh to illustrate the time in a man’s lifespan during which he discovers his future wardrobe staples. For this latest collection, the progression of looks was a loose, non-linear, zip-zagging chronology inspired by elements of Michael Jackson’s sartorial signatures. Through military dress, sequinned finishes, sleek loafers, among other elements, the spirit of Michael Jackson reverberated from the runway.Virgil Abloh Show FW19 Fashion Show

Bringing the mood and emotion of New York City to the set of the Men's Fall-Winter 2019 Show.
Echoing the theatrical production value of Michael Jackson's short films, Virgil Abloh sought to elevate the fashion show concept to a level evocative of Broadway for his second Louis Vuitton show. The Men's Fall-Winter 2019 set imagines a New York cityscape, its dwellers meandering through the streets, their steps illuminating the sidewalk as a nod to the King of Pop's iconic music video.
