Louis Vuitton’s renowned artistic director Virgil Abloh has provided a sneak peak of what is to come in the run-up to the highly anticipated fashion month.
The American fashion designer has taken to social media to document a glimpse into the artworks that will accompany the fashion powerhouse’s SS19 collection influenced by the fantastical Wizard of Oz. Revealed in his latest Instagram posts, those of us who aren’t lucky enough to reside in New York, are treated to the visual feast that is the 12-story artwork created by Louis Vuitton’s ideation studio.
In addition to the colossal psychedelic sculptures that stand at Harajuko Station and New York’s LV headquarters, Virgil himself will spray paint a red X to mark “exactly where to stand for all the angles to work.”
