Ever since Louis Vuitton named Virgil Alboh its new menswear designer last month, we’ve been left only to speculate what the OFF-WHITE founder will cook up for the luxury fashion house. Now, courtesy of famed Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, we get a glimpse at Virgil’s first Louis Vuitton product.
Showcased in a pair of Instagram posts, we see Abloh sporting a small cross body bag, complete with monogrammed Louis Vuitton print. The body of the accessory is done up in bright blue leather, as it is complemented by brown LV accents.
There is no word on if this is an official Louis Vuitton item or not, but be sure to leave us your thoughts on Virgil’s recently-spotted cross body bag.
