In celebration of Virgil Abloh’s debut collection as Men’s Artistic Director for Louis Vuitton, the Fifth Avenue store now has on display a 12-story piece of art! The oversized figure stands inside the store creating an optical illusion that extends onto the street and throughout the store. Abloh’s collection drew inspiration from the classic 1939 film “The Wizard of Oz.” The window installations the accompany the giant art piece draw on the same aesthetic themes with technicolor skies, fields of flowers and the yellow brick road. There is also a short residency inside Chrome Hearts in the West Village which will feature a range of tailored to casual ready to wear pieces, shoes, leather goods and multi-colored accessories from Abloh’s debut collection in an exclusively designed and conceptual space.
To celebrate the launch of the Women’s Spring/Sumer 2019 collection, Louis Vuitton has also installed “Postcards From the Future” at the Fifth Avenue store. These digital window installations, created by Es Devlin under the artistic direction of Nicolas Ghesquière, represent different cities as live postcards “from a moment not yet lived.”
