Virgil Abloh Goes Fiber Optic With New Louis Vuitton FW19 Bag and Sneakers

Virgil Abloh’s second collection for Louis Vuitton proved to be an exemplary infusion of retro-vintage inspiration, with the designer channeling his inner Michael Jackson for the uniquely designed runway show. While the clothes were packed full of unique cuts that donned a refined finish, the fiber optic-infused monochrome bag and light-show-bearing sneaker stole the show.

In a unique power-move for the designer, one part of the show included a black-out of the venue’s runway lighting, with 5 models stacked in a diamond formation showcasing the collection’s new monochrome-print bag and newly created sneaker. As spotlighted in a recent Instagram post from the brand, the new high-top shoe totes a color-changing detailed upper with a tongue that hosts a morphing Louis Vuitton logo.

The new pieces ought to catch a few eyes, and being one of the highlights of the show, will most likely fetch a hefty price as well.

Shopping - September Issue

Hello guys!

As you may already know, I love shopping! I try always to find unique pieces for my closet but also things that will fit in really easy.

I was looking for a great pair of white sneakers for the longest but I wanted a really unique piece! Thank god I found those Etro white leather sneakers! I can easily where them from day to night and the most important you will not see everyone wearing them. Go check them! I highly recommend them.

Balenciaga is so hot at the moment. Last year I bought the sock trainers and I really loved them. For this season I though why not to go for the Triple S. The ugly shoe trend is still on and even though they are really heavy, they look amazing.


Last but not least I wanted to buy a new backpack for everyday use. I wanted a classic piece that I could also travel with. So Louis Vuitton was definitely the one! I bough the Christopher PM and it is really comfortable and stylish.
