When it comes to fashion, we love a good debut, especially when a newly appointed Artistic Director is in the mix. There was Maria Grazia Chiuri for Dior, and Raf Simons for Calvin Klein, but all pale in comparison to the sheer exhilaration for Virgil Abloh's first Louis Vuitton Men's Spring 2019 collection. It was the kind of fashion moment we needed now more than ever. Yes, the model casting was diverse and the front row celebrity roster was inspired, but it was the collection itself (and the man who envisioned it) that was the real shining star. Abloh's gritty and sometimes clinical design aesthetic was beautifully translated into the brand's practical sensibility, where impeccable cut and subversive accessories were the name of his game. His subtle implementation of the house's logo, embossed and grained leather, and iridescent PVC, all wrapped up in a Wizard of Oz dream theme. It marked a new dawn (and a new day) not only for Vuitton but for the fashion world, as well.
