Continuing his exploration of boyhood, Virgil Abloh staged his Spring-Summer 2020 Fashion Show as an ode to the typical idea of childhood bliss. Against the backdrop of the postcard-perfect Place Dauphine, accented by childhood symbols such as kites and balloons, the latest Louis Vuitton Men's Fashion Show was presented while the Heritage Orchestra, directed by Chris Wheeler and conductor Tom Richards, performed a medley of tracks live under the musical direction of Benji B.
Florals - both real flowers "foliaged" onto mid-layers, hats and bags, as well as embroidered and crocheted motifs - provided the overarching inspiration as a naturally occurring metaphor for diversity. The collection's palette is rooted in the colours of the garden: jessamine yellow, sage, moss green, forget-me-not blue, heirloom lilac, peony pink, fuchsia, etc. Other horticultural inspiration includes straw gardening hats, wellington boots and functional gloves.
