The craftsmanship the French powerhouse is known for is very much embedded in Virgil Abloh‘s elevated streetwear collection. From the choice of materials (leather, ceramic, and plastic to name a few) to Wizard of Oz influences, the collection evokes luxe coolness.
Standout pieces from the collection include Wizard of Oz tops, the holographic keepall, embroidered shirts that almost pass as couture, reimagined sneakers, the never-been-done soft trunk, and the signature streetwear neon shirts. Must-haves!

Named Penetrable BBL Blue, the immersive art installation is made of suspended volumes of thin vertical rods. It is a revelation of the sensitive space where the impression of movement, generated by repetitions of shapes and colours, gives way to genuine optical illusions.
The art installation runs from now until May 12, 2019.
We concluded the trip with a photo shoot in the streets of Tokyo. Watch out for it in our February-March 2019 issue.
