As Louis Vuitton’s newly appointed creative director, Virgil Abloh instituted his inaugural collection at the Domaine du Palais-Royale gardens today in Paris.
It initiated with “accessomorphosis” which Virgil described as a portmanteau which facilitates the transformation of an accessory into a garment. This term formulated the basis of the 56-look collection donned, “Colour Theory.”
A double-breasted wool-mohair blazer fused with a white leather bib, a pencil-case pouch; a leather vest, embossed with the fashion house’s signature monogram, contained protruding structured pockets and anoraks cut away at the back to make way for an attached bum bag.
Additionally, Virgil created the first ever monogram-less trunk with significant black detailing which resembles a portable guitar amp.
Much of the process became streamable via Instagram’s new long-form launch of IGTV. Virgil became one of the first, if not the first, major influencer to utilize this medium of Instagram.
