First off, Louis Vuitton’s first drop of their Pre-Fall 2023 men’s collection by creative director Pharrell Williams has finally arrived. This is the creative director’s latest pre-fall collection for the French fashion brand. Meanwhile, rapper and fashionable dad A$AP Rocky has casually dropped new merch to coincide with his impending album Don’t Be Dumb. 

Next, sneaker brands Reebok and JJJJound have joined forces again for a collaborative sneaker. The new shoe offers a “quiet luxury,” street style energy.

Louis Vuitton Unveils Its Pre-Fall 2024 Collection 

Pharrell William’s first pre-collection with Louis Vuitton has been unveiled. The Pre-Fall 2024 men’s collection by the creative director follows the theme of traveling. Williams has worked with this theme once before with his Resort 2024 collection. The connective power of travel through nautical themes is experimented with in this collection featuring pieces like structured balloon-shaped trousers in black and tan with matching zip-up collared jackets and striped suits with sailor caps. Other stand-out pieces in the collection are a blue and white varsity jacket with an LV script motif, button-down short sleeves with a Louis Vuitton signature logo, and a monogram checkered light salmon suit. Accessories include carry-ons in bright quilted yellow, printed handbags, and a mini duffle-shaped bag.

Michael Kors Hosts A Paris Pop-Up

Fashion brand Michael Kors is bringing its Spring 2024 campaign to life in Paris for an immersive pop-up. Hosted in the Marais district, the pop-up features three rooms focused on sensory experience with the images in each room photographed by Mert Alas. The Colby bag is a new release under the Spring collection and is highlighted in the pop-up. According to WWD, this new event was created to target aspirational shoppers. The first room in the pop-up features multiple screens with a clouded light to represent the California weather. The second room is for the new bag with it on display while the third room features effects to visualize a swimming pool. 

“We wanted to bring the sunny, graphic energy of Los Angeles, where the campaign was shot, to another one of my favorite cities, Paris, as we celebrate the spirit of the next-gen jet set around the world,” Kors said to WWD.
