Virgil Abloh's next collection for Louis Vuitton will be based on Michael Jackson.
Abloh confirmed the news in a recent conservation with Interview magazine, in which he spoke at length about creativity with rapper Young Thug.
"My next collection is going to be based on Michael Jackson," Abloh said. "When I have Michael singing in the background [in my studio], it’s a different type of shirt, it’s a different kind of boot, it’s a different fit of pants. Music is key."
Back in 2017, the Off-White label owner also collaborated with Berlin’s Boy Noize for his first official music release. Read about it here.
