The spotlight was on Louis Vuitton this year at Paris Fashion Week Mens Resort 2019.  With Virgil Abloh recently dubbed the first African-American director of Louis Vuitton, his debut collection for LV is history in the making.  His Off-White influence was clear as the collection revealed many white, off-white, and beige outfits.  Virgil continues to ever surprise us, however, as the collection also displayed a rainbow of colours including, greens, reds, pinks, blues, purples, and oranges.  He selected some of his famous friends for his modeling cast including, Kid Cudi, Steve Lacy, A$AP Nast, and Playboi Carti.  A star-studded attendee list included Rihanna, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Travis Scott, A$AP Rocky, Luka Sabbat, and Bella Hadid.  His collection title "We Are The World" sums up how he is influencing the fashion world to further embrace multiculturalism and diversity.  This menswear collection showed a strong theme of streetwear, yet kept the traditional Louis Vuitton class.  It is safe to say that the LV Brand is making a major move to embrace modernism and the changing of the times.  The best move a fashion brand can make.
