From June 8th to July 7th, Louis Vuitton opens its exclusive Menswear Fall-winter 2019 Chicago Residency to the public, in celebration of Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection. The residency will be housed at 1100 West Randolph St. in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood, just south of Abloh’s “Figures of Speech” exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary Art.

The collection includes limited-edition apparel and accessories, all colored a monochromatic orange and designed exclusively for Chicago. The hue of these pieces match the color of the bold, radical residency space itself. The bright orange is designed to pop in an otherwise plain store, reflecting the colorful pigment of urban life.
