Virgil Abloh presented his fourth collection as Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton today at Paris Fashion Week.

Fall/Winter 2020 had a lot to live up to following a beautiful kite-inspired Spring/Summer 2020 collection. The presentation and details didn't disappoint as the invitation itself was a backwards spinning clock.

The show itself was based off the concept of "Heave on Earth" and an ode to the freedom of thought. In order to create the perfect set, Louis Vuitton teamed with PLAYLAB INC. for a larger than life stage that featured all the tools of the trade including scissors, yarn, sewing needle, paint brush, axe, keys, pencil sharpener, pencil, pins and more.

To fully bring everything together, pieces in the collection included various suiting options that prominently featured a larger gold pin button as the top button of the suit jacket as well as a variety of pants and exaggerated arrow-point dress shoes. The most eye-catching pieces featured a cut-up design that makes each piece look like a puzzle being put together as well as a coat with a suit jacket and tie sewn on. Plenty of fur and leather options on outerwear was also presented with the latter half of the show giving way to numerous pieces with frills and a blue and white pattern mimicking the sky and heavens as well as sunglasses and face accessories.
