Notably as part of Virgil Abloh’s inaugural SS19 collection for Louis Vuitton, slated to kick off on Thursday, June 21 at Paris Fashion Week, the usual monogrammed variation of the trunk is now brandless, but instead flaunting a more understated approach with its entirety draped in black, and detailed with matching leather handles, matte metallic drawbolts, and a sturdy clasp.
You can expect to see this featured piece, and the full SS19 range from Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton’s fashion presentation on June 21. For more, here’s everything you need to know about Virgil Abloh’s first LV show.
