UW-Madison Alumnus Virgil Abloh Capsule Collection and Exhibition

UW-Madison Alumnus Virgil Abloh, creative director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear since 2018, has released a capsule collection in conjunction with the Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition at the Louvre Museum in Paris. In the Designboom article, Abloh credits part of his inspiration for his collection to a senior year undergraduate course at UW where he learned about Da Vinci.

In the US, his exhibition Figures of Speech is currently on view at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta through March 8, 2020 and will be at the Brooklyn Museum of Art under the curation of Antwaun Sargent next fall.
