Find out what inspired @virgilabloh's move to @LouisVuitton.

On LV’s Instagram stories, Abloh describes how Pharrell inspired his first Louis Vuitton purchase — the Wapity wallet — as he toys with bag prototypes. Later, he describes that his inspiration comes “from things I see on the street, and my friends.” For Abloh, inspiration is seemingly everywhere: indeed, “a delivery worker had a cool pair of jeans on, that gave me an idea. That was twenty seconds ago.” At Louis Vuitton, the designer aims to “establish a new vocabulary … that’s youthful, modern, but at the same time, hinged on the past.” Finally, Abloh notes that the most exciting thing about joining the pedigreed label “is the ability to create with this level of craftsmanship and luxury.”
