American designer and Louis Vuitton men's artistic director, Virgil Abloh has designed a capsule collection of accessories for the French fashion house, finished entirely in orange, Women's Wear Daily (WWD) reports, Wednesday, June 5. The creations will be sold at a pop-up in Chicago during the designer's retrospective at the city's Museum of Contemporary Art.



The "Virgil Abloh: 'Figures of Speech'" exhibition runs June 10 to September 22 at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art and is devoted to the work of the famous multi-talented American designer. To accompany this retrospective, the designer -- who founded the Off-White label -- is opening a pop-up store featuring exclusive Louis Vuitton creations.

The pop-up will open June 8 to July 7, 2019, on West Randolph Street, in a lively neighborhood of the city. As well as the Virgil Abloh for Louis Vuitton all-orange capsule -- notably including sneakers, sunglasses and a backpack -- it will also feature the fashion house's fall 2019 men's collection.

Virgil Abloh will be in the spotlight at the forthcoming Paris men's fashion week, where he is scheduled to present new collections for Off-White (currently slated for June 19) and Louis Vuitton (slated for June 20).
