We’ve already given you a behind-the-scenes look at Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton FW19 show, but now we’re taking an even closer look at the details in the designer’s impressive collection. For his second outing at the fashion house, Abloh paid homage to Michael Jackson, which was reflected in a graphic tee, “Human Made” knitwear, and pieces referencing Jackson’s 1978 movie The Wiz, among others.
Flags were also a common theme, with the American and Ghanaian flags representing Abloh’s background. On the footwear side, Abloh’s signature high-tops came with glow-in-the-dark accents, and skate shoe-inspired chunky sneakers came in a rich purple and all-black colorway.
The accessories included a range of bags, which included rainbow-accented suitcases, various takes on Louis Vuitton’s signature monogram leather bag, and a satchel covered in flags.
Elsewhere, the collection featured Michael Jackson-inspired gloves and a translucent Jenga set.
