Paris Mens Fashion Week – Who Will Be Louis Vuittons Next Creative Director?

Paris Men’s fashion week is coming and Louis Vuitton’s successor question is at the heart of it. Men’s fashion week looks set to return with full force this season, ending in Paris from  June 21st to June 26th, 2022.

After the last heartfelt tribute to late designer Virgil Abloh, showcasing his final collection for the house. A big question is at the heart of t

The upcoming event. Who will be the long-awaited Louis Vuitton’s successor for Paris Men’s Fashion Week 2022? While the new artistic director has yet to be announced, the menswear show collection will be designed by the brand’s design studio. But the mystery and the expectation are felt.

The fashion rumour mill has been in overdrive about Abloh’s successor since the 41-year-old designer died of cancer on 28 November 2021. Fashion insiders and people close to LVMH’s thinking told Vogue Business among the possibilities are Jonathan Anderson who has revived LVMH-owned Loewe with acclamation for both men and womenswear. Nigo, who has recently been hired at Kenzo, is another possibility.

Ronnie Fieg, who founded Kith, and Sacai founder and creative director Chitose Abe, who have both built successful brands, were also mentioned.

Emerging designers’ names include young British designers Grace Wales Bonner, Jerry Lorenzo, and Samuel Ross, (both friends and collaborators of Abloh’s), as well as Casablanca founder of Charaf Tajer. 

Rumour has it that Kanye West is also being lined up to take over Louis Vuitton’s artistic direction and follow Virgil Abloh’s legacy. 

Speculation is high, and we suspect the reveal may come at the show! 

One thing is certain the successor will be a creative who reaches beyond the world of fashion.
