Connotations of masculine luxury included an enormous floor-length fur coat, matching marbled suit jackets and pants, ribboned top hats, and floor-sweeping wool overcoats in black, white, green, denim, a milk chocolate velvet, and green checkered plaid. These archetypes of pre-Abloh Louis Vuitton design language mixed with elements of Black culture incorporated through design, dance, music, and poetry make for a truly important collection. Abloh was criticized over this past summer on Instagram by young followers for not appropriately showing his support for the BLM protests taking place across the nation. With this assembly he has cemented his stance on the matter. Abloh intends to be the hand holding doors open for future generations of Black creators.
