Louis Vuitton Land of Oz

The fictional Land of Oz is a magical country first introduced in the classic children’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. As inspiration for the Louis Vuitton men’s collection SS/19 it was also Virgil Abloh’s first show (2019), as Artistic Director of the men’s collections at the House.

The collection starts with all-white silhouettes followed by an explosion of colors, Virgil Abloh associates modern influences with formal attire and launches the idea of “accessomorfose” in which a accessory becomes a garment.
A nice mix of international models ran the rainbow catwalk in LV Skate-sneaker boots, derbies or vintage LV Runner sneakers, “very eye pleasing”.
