What Virgil Abloh’s First Louis Vuitton Collection Means for Streetwear
On this week’s edition of The Dropcast, hosts Jian DeLeon and Noah Thomas are joined by Alec Leach, Atip Wananaruks, and Corey Stokes, forming a veritable fashion Voltron.
The guys weigh in from the menswear mecca that is Paris Fashion Week, shortly after seeing Virgil Abloh’s debut show for Louis Vuitton. Spoiler alert: Jian cried. They discuss what this means for the line that used to exist between fashion and streetwear, and where it could go from here.
Some of the other landmark shows discussed include Jun Takahashi’s first UNDERCOVER menswear show, Raf Simons’ return to Paris after a few seasons in New York, and how much more chill it is to line up for limited-edition sneakers in Paris. Listen to the full episode above.
