American fashion designer and artistic director at Louis Vuitton, Virgil Abloh, says he is going to design a collection of fashion items based on Michael Jackson. In a recent interview he stated;
“I can’t work in my studio without music. I don’t like silence. I’m listening to John Coltrane. I’m listening to Miles Davis. But I’m also listening to whatever new rap is coming out that week. I have teams in Milan, Italy, London, and America, so as long as I have a fully charged iPhone, I feel like I can change the world. I’m talking on that phone, but I’m also constantly listening to music. 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.”
Virgil Abloh entered the world of fashion in 2009 at Fendi, alongside Kanye West.
He is also known for his work as a music producer and DJ.
