From the Nike collaborations and the legendary fashion houses to the upcoming fashion designers here are some of our favourite sneakers to add in your wishlist for 2019.
Virgil Abloh has just unveiled the theme for his Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2018-19 show, which will be presented in Paris in January 2019: Michael Jackson.
The American designer has already demonstrated his admiration for pop culture icons through his own-label as seen at the Off-White Spring/Summer 2018 show which presented colorful pieces inspired by the late Diana, Princess of Wales. The graphic themes, a nod to American graffiti artist, Dondi White, seen in Abloh’s Off-White collection the following year also spring to mind.
January 2019 will see the theme continued as Abloh is to present his second menswear collection for Louis Vuitton in Paris which will pay homage to the King of pop, Michael Jackson. In an interview with Interview magazine, Abloh revealed that “when I have Michael singing in the background, it’s a different type of shirt, it’s a different kind of boot, it’s a different fit of pants. Music is key.” The American designer also revealed other news in announcing that he’d like to design a spaceship someday. Mr. Abloh, you never fail to surprise us…

After months of waiting, the designer finally presented his SS19 collection as the artistic director of the Parisian house.
Numerous celebrities have attended the show waiting to see the new Vuitton aesthetic and collection.
After a small preview on instagram, today we had the opportunity see all the new collection and direction of the brand. As well as understated, futuristic white sneakers with day-glo laces, and utility-style harnesses with pockets throughout were some of the most bold elements and with the reimagination of the classic LV monogram to be on hero pieces of SS19.
Monochrome looks in total white, total red and more were some of the first strong combinations with mixed and match pieces to continue. Tailored suits with wide-trousers and double-breasted jackets, sportswear-influenced silhouettes, and utilitarian shirts were only some of the new proposals of the new artistic director and the new LV era.
A first glimpse at Louis Vuitton Men's Fall Winter 2018 Fashion Show by Kim Jones.
After 7 years at Louis Vuitton Kim Jones stepped down from his role as Men’s Artistic Director and the finale was remarkable.
The designer presented a collection rich in sportswear references including a series of jersey tops and parkas finished with dramatic crater prints, crocodile backpacks and double-faced cashmere baseball tops.
The nomadic mood, rodeo inspired flankman-shorts, the intarsia mink coats from Russia and Siberia and a 'greatest hits' o previous LV collections; were all there.
The finale was the perfect conclusion to Jones' incredible fashion journey with Louis Vuitton. His last time on LV runway was along with the super models Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss.
