Louis Vuitton will present its first-ever fashion show in Hong Kong next week, with creative director Pharrell Williams unveiling his second men's collection.
About the show: In partnership with billionaire Adrian Cheng’s K11 MUSEA, the debut Hong Kong show will be held on a section of the iconic Avenue of the Stars at K11 Victoria Dockside in Tsim Sha Tsui, according to a press release. It will showcase Williams’ men's pre-fall 2024 collection, his second collection with the brand after spring/summer 2024 at Paris Fashion Week in June.
The upcoming show will also mark the first time the French luxury brand showcases a men’s pre-fall collection on a runway. It is also the first pre-fall collection designed by Williams.
A win for Hong Kong: Williams, 50, was named Louis Vuitton’s creative director for menswear in February, taking over the highly coveted role from the late Virgil Abloh after his death in November 2021. In a statement, Cheng said the upcoming event will help strengthen Hong Kong’s status as “a thriving cultural and economic hub.”
