Louis Vuitton named Virgil Abloh its creative director of menswear not even a year ago, in March of 2018. After debuting his first collection for Spring Summer 2019, Abloh's impact is already undeniable. Taking over New York like he did Paris, Abloh has announced a Manhattan residency to display a selection of his first collection for the French maison.

Louis Vuitton's temporary residency in the West Village

The Louis Vuitton collection lodges in Chrome Hearts's West Village quarters, as the designer shares a relationship with the brand of high-end jewelry and edgy housewares. The space, refashioned to host its new guest, features exclusive, conceptual design with selects from the collection ranging tailored formalwear to casual prêt-a-porter. Also in the mix is, of course, the season's signature accessories that walked the runway.

Open just until January 17th, make your way down to the Vuitton bunker to get your dose of Spring Summer 2019.
