This piece was made to celebrate the vision behind the design in the new Louis Vuitton collection by Virgil Abloh.
As well as celebrating this the design featured elements such as orange chains which were present on pieces such as bags.
In this piece the subject is wearing the collection with the orange chains as straps but also to signify the control luxury items in the current age, hold so much power and define status which shouldn’t be the case. The disagreement with luxury goods defining status is expressed by the position of the subject, as if she is hiding from the fact.
