Fashion designer Virgil Abloh has made puffer jackets covered in Paris landmarks and well-known skyscrapers as part of the Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter menswear collection, which debuted in a Barcelona Pavilion-informed set.
In one scene Williams enters a large room where two models stand on plinths dressed in puffer jackets covered in 3D models of buildings.
Reflecting the fact that the physical show took place in Paris where Abloh lives, one model was wearing a piece called the Paris skyline puffer jacket, which was adorned with models of the city’s best-known buildings.
The jacket has the Notre-Dame cathedral on its front along with models of other historic buildings, including a red version of the Eiffel Tower, the Arch de Triumph and the Panthéon.
The look also included two modern buildings – Chinese-American architect IM Pei’s Le Grand Louvre pyramid and a section of the Centre Pompidou designed by Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano.
Informed by Chicago, where Abloh studied architecture before becoming a fashion designer, the second model was wearing a jacket wrapped in 3D models of skyscrapers. Although the skyscrapers appear to be from multiple cities, the piece is named New York City skyline puffer jacket in the show notes.
Among the most recognisable buildings in the piece are the John Hancock Center in Chicago by SOM and the Bank of China skyscraper in Hong Kong by Pei.
