The legendary singer, late Michael Jackson will be honoured by one of the very high-profile, very pop culture-obsessed designer Virgil Abloh at the Fall 2019 menswear show. Last year, the artistic director of men’s fashion, Abloh announced that his second collection for the design house Louis Vuitton would be inspired by the man who gave Thriller, “Smooth Criminal” and moonwalk.

 

Abloh seems to be taking a rather literal approach to his style tribute. The designer chose to distribute a single embellished white glove to each guest signed by him, with the address of the venue printed on it. A Louis Vuitton-branded snap button closure completes the glove. He penned a long tribute to Jackson, “a universally relatable marvel” as the keynote to the collection, and posted a poem he wrote about him to his 3.4 million Instagram followers. The sparkly glove is, of course, a Jackson signifier and a small totem go with his giant, starry, untouchable persona.

Speaking to Interview magazine, Abloh said, “My next Louis Vuitton collection is going to be based on Michael Jackson, and when I have Michael singing in the background, it’s a different type of shirt, it’s a different kind of boot, it’s a different fit of pants. Music is key.”
