Today we get a look at what Virgil Abloh has cooked up for Louis Vuitton‘s Pre-Spring 2020 men’s collection. For the new season, we find Abloh reimagining streetwear staples by implementing a touch of luxury for a new generation.
Examples of Virgil’s fine tuning come in the form of a saharienne receiving the savoir-faire treatment in leather, double-face safari jackets and coats appearing in camel and navy colorways, and cargo pants being outfitted with three-dimensional pockets. Furthermore, the designer’s signature harnessing can be paired with everything from a padded blouson and oversized shirt, to a puffer coat and shearling jacket.
Abloh also reinterprets one of streetwear’s go-to patterns in desert camouflage, applying it to a windbreaker and mink blouson. Chains, also heavily used in streetwear, then decorate a quilted sweatshirt and denim pants in print form, while a collage jacquard created from a Raphael painting brings a gilet, trench coat, and bomber jacket to life.
Rounding out Virgil Abloh’s Pre-Spring 2020 Louis Vuitton men’s collection are a parachute jacket and shorts featuring a trippy wood grain print, as well as a knitted jumper with a group portrait of the Louis Vuitton menswear studio.
