After a three month hiatus from fashion, Virgil Abloh is back with his latest Menswear collection for Louis Vuitton. Having just shown his latest for Off-White in Paris yesterday, today his Fall 2020 Menswear offering titled “Heaven on Earth” hit the runways, signaling a pivot for the designer.
In comparison with the surrealist stage design of luminous clouds and oversized Alice in Wonderlandesque objects by PLAYLAB, INC, the collection was resolutely pared back. Featuring sleek tailored double-breasted suiting, oversized leather trenches, and traditional workwear. Abloh was quoted backstage stating “the collection is about being open-minded and free, even in the constructs of formal menswear.”
