With Off White’s Virgil Abloh becoming Louis Vuitton’s artistic director in March 2018, his first LV designer debut release was hugely anticipated, and it did not disappoint. A popup in Tokyo proved that the line is going to be a huge hit, as the sales went up 30% compared to the brand’s previous best-selling 2017 Supreme collaboration. The collection was inspired by Wizard of Oz and celebrated its 80th anniversary. Like any great artist, his work is far deeper than honouring a film and showing us great clothing that is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. His pieces delve into the meaning of the Yellow Brick Road and what it symbolises to him. He is Louis Vuitton's first black designer, who never went to fashion school. After interning at Fendi with Kanye West his success in the industry grew, yet he never expected to be where he is today. During the show there was a sense of all his dreams coming to life. Models began coming out in all-white, but the mood lifted as bursts of colours started filtering into the outfits; it was inevitable that the star-studded runway show was a huge success. With neon-coloured outerwear, head-to-toe white, tie dye two pieces and bright and playful prints being some of the very on-trend designs that hit the catwalk, we are predicting that it’s going to be nearly impossible – or affordable – to get your hands on your favourite pieces that have just dropped only in allocated stores.

So, we have put together an edit of some inspiring alternatives that will allow you to channel these iconic Virgil Abloh Louis Vuitton looks, some for a whole lot less.
