As some of you may know Virgil Abloh of Off-White was named the Creative Director of Louis Vuitton Menswear and boy am I looking forward to his first collection which occurred at some point today.
Louis Vuitton recently tweeted some sneak peeks and WOAH!!!! I’m currently in love with this holographic Keepall. It does keep to the traditional Keepall duffel shape and all but the material is iridescent and mostly clear which has me jumping at the bits to see it in real life. I’m also loving the added touch of the oversized chain strap. I knew Virgil would bring his own style to Vuitton and this is exceeding my expectation.
Off-White’s success is due to its mix of tradition and streetwear plus the use of industrial materials e.g. seat belts as shoulder straps to bags…GENIUS….! I was hoping he would continue this with Vuitton and so far it looks like he has.
This Keepall iridescent bag looks to be available in blue too…
Some more sneak peeks of Virgil’s first collection. It looks like the oversized chain will be a theme throughout this season…cannot wait!!!!
What is this material?? 😱 😱
Hope everyone is as excited as me to watch his collection in full. In the meantime here is a preview video Louis Vuitton has done.
See you next time. The expat xx
