It seems Virgil Abloh is up to his old tricks. One of streetwear's founding fathers is the subject of an upcoming, retrospective exhibit at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art, and he's celebrating with an exclusive drop of Louis Vuitton menswear accessories. The goods will be available at a pop-up, reports WWD.

The collection consists of two carrot-colored bags with macing sunglasses, a monogrammed hat, a chain, belt, and sneakers. There will also be selected pieces from Louis Vuitton's Fall 2019 collection for sale.

The pop-up joins other festivities to ring in the exhibit, such as the NikeLab Re-Creation center, also put together by Abloh. The exhibit itself will feature bestselling pieces from Off-White.

Chicago is a natural fit for the designer's first museum retrospective; it's where he met collaborator and friend Kanye West, which was the start of Abloh's multi-disciplinary approach to fashion, music, and art.

The exhibit on Virgil Abloh opens next week on June 10th and is slated to run until September 22nd. The pop-up will be running from June 8th to July 7th in Chicago's West Loop.
