The Michael Jackson documentary “Leaving Neverland” has created so much noise that Louis Vuitton has pulled a collection from Virgil Abloh.
Fashion house Louis Vuitton has decided to pull a collection by Virgil Abloh which was inspired by the late singer Michael Jackson.
The fall 2019 menswear collection which was debuted in Paris back in January featured pieces that made reference to Jackson’s iconic sense of style.
However, following the release of HBO’s Leaving Neverland docuseries, that has all come to a screeching halt.
Earlier this week, Abloh broke his silence of the collection and the documentary saying;
“I am aware that in light of this documentary the show has caused emotional reactions. I strictly condemn any form of child abuse, violence or infringement against any human rights,” he told WWD.
“My intention for this show was to refer to Michael Jackson as a pop culture artist. It referred only to his public life that we all know and to his legacy that has influenced a whole generation of artists and designers.”
Since the release of the film, Jackson’s family has said they want to take legal action to defend Michael since he passed back in 2009.
