Louis Vuitton is kicking off the New Year by announcing a series of men’s fashion events taking place in Paris throughout the month of January.

The initiative under the name “Louis Vuitton: Walk in the Park”, includes public, digital and physical experiences. The goal is to raise awareness of designs created by Virgil Abloh, Creative Director of the Maison, for the new men’s collection to be presented in January.

Pop-up in Rue du Pont Neuf

To this end, one of the first events has been the installation of a Temporary Residency at Rue du Pont Neuf, from January 8 until January 31, 2021. At this pop-up consumers will be able to purchase reissues and limited editions of sneakers, jewelry and sunglasses. Throughout the store, designs are color-coded with rainbow hues, a nod to Virgil Abloh’s debut runway show set for Louis Vuitton for the Spring-Summer 2019 collection.
