July 12, 2019: Virgil Abloh and Louis Vuitton are back with another unique retail experience. After hosting a shop in Chicago throughout June, Abloh and LV opened a New York pop-up today at 100 Rivington St. in the Lower East Side that will have fans feeling “green” with envy. The entire space has been enveloped in neon green, including the exterior and interior floors, walls and ceiling — even the furniture and decorative plants and props. The only items sans paint are the looks from Abloh’s fall ’19 LV apparel, footwear and accessories collection, including an updated version of the Louis Vuitton “Skate” Trainer. The shop will be open Monday to Sunday, from noon to 9pm, until July 21.
