This opportunity to think through what the next chapter of design and luxury will mean at a brand that represents the pinnacle of luxury was always a goal in my wildest dreams. And to show a younger generation that there is no one way anyone in this kind of position has to look is a fantastically modern spirit in which to start," said Abloh in a statement. The designer confirmed the appointment early this morning by posting a picture of a Louis Vuitton monogram trunk with the initials “LV” to his Instagram account, without a caption.
