It has been a pleasing year for Virgil Abloh and all of his endeavors, mostly with his debut As Louis Vuittons – Men’s Creative Director and his debut SS19 Collection for the Fashion House. The time has finally come where we’ll be able to grab some of those Runway pieces we all swooned so heavily over and Re-grammed the hell out of.
Hosted by New York’s Chrome Hearts flagship store, the Fashion House has announced a stateside pop-up shop. Although a “temporary residency”, the store will include a limited selection from the forthcoming collection. The collection was not only inspirational, but full of emotion as the pressure was truly on for such a big moment for Abloh, in which he full delivered. Renditions, and depth meanings, of The Wizard of Oz’s Yellow brick roads plastered over a crewneck sweater. Dorothy laying calmly in a bed of delicate roses, and that already famous Metallic Silver poncho Playboi Cardi sported down the Runway.
It’s not certain which pieces will be included – yet see for yourselves at the Chrome Hearts flagship beginning January 10 for the curated collection pre-global launch.
