Welcome to Cool Pants. Here are 3 things that happened in streetwear this week:
1. HERON PRESTON
FACTORY STEEZ. San Fran’s Heron Preston debuted his self-titled SS19 collection with a performance/runway show based out of an old metal factory in Paris. Matching the venue, Preston had his models literally assembling his finale as they walked down the runway. Preston’s collection featured a work-wear aesthetic featuring a special sunglasses collab with Nike. Check out the video below to here Heron explain his vision further.
2. LOUIS VUITTON x VIRGIL ABLOH
Virgil & LV put on a show. On Thursday, Louis Vuitton’s newly appointed creative director had his very first runway show. With celebs in attendance (and some modelling), this was by far Paris Fashion Week’s biggest attraction. The 15 minute show took place outdoors and featured over 50 models from all over the world. Pieces like the one above were featured amongst many all-white outfits as well as Abloh’s first LV sneaker design. The vibe was pretty crazy for this one. Check out the whole show below.
3. UNDERCOVER x JUN TAKAHASHI
That's it for the week. See you in 7 days.
Warrriorrrrs. Japanese fashion designer Jun Takahashi put on a damn show in Paris. Showing under his brand UNDERCOVER the streetwear vet channelled the vibes of a Cult Classic film...1979’s legendary crime thriller ‘The Warriors”. This was not your typical runways show, with Takahashi presenting different styles in the form of 8 different ’gangs’ of models. It was pretty wild. Check out the whole show below.
