Louis Vuitton showcased its FW20 men’s collection at Paris Fashion Week on Thursday, with Highsnobiety making it along to yesterday’s re-see for a closer inspection of the offering.
Inspired by the idea of heaven, the garb was, undoubtedly, Virgil Abloh’s most tailoring-heavy to date (more about that here). While the sky-print suits and waistcoat-slash-shirt hybrids dominated the post-show chatter, there were plenty of other intriguing creations that flew under the radar.
Above, we can take a closer look at the wild derby shoes that arrive ensconced in a harness, as well as mid-top sneakers finished with diamonté-like detailing (big Y2K energy) and monogram leather, respectively. Other highlights include a crocodile-print bag (how long until we see Bella Hadid clutching that baby in a paparazzi photo?) and a pilot bomber jacket that will no doubt cost considerably more than your last paycheque.
“I was inspired by when you go to a financial district and you see a young kid who works in a business and they’re breaking down the male dress code,” said Abloh following the show. Don’t blame him when you get sent home early on Monday for violating the company uniform policy.
