Virgil Abloh, the artistic director of Louis Vuitton, is making yet another bold (colored) statement with the launch of the brand's new collection: an exclusive all-orange collection of pieces that may inevitably have you reconsidering your favorite color list. Featuring Abloh’s long-teased sneakers showcasing an orange insole and laces, chunky frames sporting matching orange lenses, monogram-printed leather caps and chain belts, as well as two soft trunk bags spotlighting the head-turning hue with complementary leather straps, zipper plackets and D-ring accents, the one-off limited edition capsule presents ready-to-wear accessories suited to your summer fits. While orange isn't necessarily the first color that comes to mind when it comes to piecing together your daily fit, it's the very exclusiveness, oddity and conspicuousness embodying the sunset shade that encapsulates the very nature of Virgil Abloh's near-mystical designer powers. Besides, with a whole set of accessories and outfit thought out for you, it’s a no-brainer that you’ll want to keep it simple while standing out as your unaverage Abloh. The collection will be sold at a pop-up in Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, showcased amongst other works belonging to the talented designer for his Virgil Abloh: 'Figures of Speech' exhibition running from June 10 to September 22.
