CONTINUING the exciting week of fashion shows and era-defining unveils is LV Men’s Fall Winter 2019. Staged in the lush Tuileries Gardens – that’s the green expanse between the Louvre and Place de la Concorde – the anticipated show will commence on 17th January, Thursday, at 2.30pm Paris time (that’s 9.30pm SGT).

There’s been little made known to the public so far, but you can’t possibly not recognise the sequined glove in the teaser image. That’s a Michael Jackson signature. The fact that invites to the show were handed out as single gloves (with a cryptic message from Abloh scrawled on them) just brings home the theory.

Considering Abloh’s last show referenced The Wizard of Oz, a theme which did indeed translate to the clothing elements, we wouldn’t put it past the creative director to introduce looks that draw inspiration from the King of Pop’s regalia.

It’s anyone’s guess if MJ tracks will substitute runway music, or if they’ll somehow shock the world with catwalk choreography. What a thriller… As if we needed more reason to be glued to the stream tonight.
