Chicago fashionistas waiting to get their hands on Virgil Abloh’s inaugural effort for Louis Vuitton will finally get their chance this Friday, January 18, when the brand’s Michigan Avenue store joins a handful of select North American markets (New York, Los Angeles, Miami, and Vancouver, Canada) offering the eagerly awaited Men’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection prior to its official launch.

The collection, a crave-worthy mix of ready-to-wear garments, accessories, leather goods, and more, oozes with the inimitable edge for which Abloh’s been lauded. The storied French label announced the appointment of the Off-White creator—a Rockford, IL native and Illinois Institute of Technology alum—as men’s artistic director in March 2018.
