The guessing game is over, Louis Vuitton has appointed its new men’s creative director, nearly 1,5 years after the passing of Virgil Abloh
Louis Vuitton has finally announced what has been secretly held behind the curtain all these times. After speculating on the possible names — including Kidsuper’s Colm Dillane — the answer is beyond our guess. Louis Vuitton is delighted to welcome Pharrell Williams as its new Men’s Creative Director. His first collection for Louis Vuitton will be revealed this June during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris.
Pharrell Williams himself is no stranger to Louis Vuitton, citing his successful collaborations with the house both in 2004 and 2008. “I am glad to welcome Pharrell back home as our new Men’s Creative Director. His creative vision beyond fashion will undoubtedly lead Louis Vuitton towards a new and very exciting chapter.” declares Pietro Beccari, Louis Vuitton’s Chairman and CEO.
Beccari believes that Pharrell’s creative universes and her persona as a cultural and global icon can help Louis Vuitton break boundaries across various worlds. Here, he is free to explore what aligns with Louis Vuitton’s status as a Cultural Maison, reinforcing its values of innovation, pioneer spirit and entrepreneurship. We believe he will bring another great era for the house.
