Prior to the show, Louis Vuitton gave a behind-the-scene look at Abloh’s first LV collection on IGTV. In the clip, Abloh says (H/T Complex):
“The elephant in the room is that I come from a different place, into this, like, storied lineage fashion. And what I wanna do is, I wanna be like in those Western movies where there be like one black cowboy. You’re like ‘I don’t understand where you came from.’ …] I kinda wanna deliver a message; be like, ‘Yeah, I come from this place.’ And this place has been usually labeled as streetwear.”
