The collection, titled “Spaceship Earth: An Imaginary Experience” and streamed live in 100 windows across Paris, at the Galeries Lafayette department store and on TikTok, included a variety of typical Virgil Abloh pieces, between casual or athletic elements and evening wear. According to the show notes, they were “designed by Virgil and made by the creative teams and collaborators he worked with“.
But the big news was the launch of the “High Fashion” line, with a show of 28 looks. This was haute couture for the Gen-Z set, underlined by the casual attitude.
