On April 18, French Maison Louis Vuitton unveiled its first-ever Voyager Show (Pre-Fall 2024) at the Long Museum West Bund in China. Creative director Nicolas Ghesquière has revealed his inter-season collections all around the globe for years. However, this installment marked the debut of the “Voyager” concept for pre-season collections. 

Once Louis Vuitton docked in Shanghai, pop star Jackson Wang was ready to showcase his fashion adroitness. A fire get-up, black gloves, and a fuzzy animal beanie were key points of Wang’s eclectic garb. 

Jackson’s A-plus Look 

From the color blocking to the unique silhouettes, Jackson’s outfit nodded to the colorful universe showcased in Louis Vuitton’s Pre-Fall 2024 runway — vibrant colors and joyful prints created in collaboration with artist Sun Yitian enlived the catwalk. 

The combination of dark orange clothes and black tights tied back to his iconic suit from Coachella 2023. To further enhance the ensemble, Wang sported the funkiest accessories. Aligning with men’s beauty trends, the Hong Kong native matched the look with midnight gloves and tiny frames

Finally, an animal wool beanie bestowed the look with the perfect quirky touch. Cute but stylish, the pointy ears subscribed to the feline aesthetic spotted on Louis Vuitton’s show, where animated animals such as leopards were incorporated onto the clothes. Sat atop his bleached frock, the hat evoked the “Cheetah” vocalist’s cutest streetwear affinities.
