The Dropcast cover 3 00 Elon Musk Louis Vuitton Virgil Abloah

After the recent big announcement of Kim Jones going to Dior, the fashion industry feels like its approaching an NBA trade deadline with all these big power trades. This week is no different.

In the second episode of the Highsnobiety Dropcast, hosts Jeff Carvalho, Noah Thomas, and Jian DeLeon share voicemails from the hotline weighing in on Virgil Abloh’s appointment as Louis Vuitton’s new artistic director of menswear, before weighing in with our own takes. Then, they talk about Nike’s Air Max Day and recent foray into the women’s sneakerhead market with Unlaced. Also, Elon Musk is making life-sized Lego bricks from concrete. It’s no flamethrower, but still a must buy. Who else is gonna cop?

Want to weigh in on today’s show or share some thoughts about what you want to hear in the next episode? As always, leave us a voicemail at 833-HIGHSNOB. That’s 833-444-4766. Yes, there’s an extra letter. But it’s fun to dial that last “B” anyway. Try it. You’ll like it. And you might end up in next week’s episode.

Listen to The Dropcast‘s second episode, “Air Max Day is Now Virgil Abloh Day” above.
