It’s been over a week since Virgil Abloh made his debut as artistic director of Louis Vuitton's menswear line and yet, we’re still not quite over the momentous fashion show.

Apart from the clothes, many fashion fans took note of the eye-catching accessories that went down the runway. Here are some of our picks from the debut show.

Louis Vuitton took guests over the rainbow with the multi-colored runway.

The catwalk stretched over 650 feet and was set up in Palais Royal at the Place Colette in Paris, France.

Several of Abloh's friends turned up for the fashion show.

Both artists were wearing clothes from Abloh's collection for Louis Vuitton.

Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian West, and Kanye West were also in attendance.


Abloh famously shared an internship with Kanye West in Fendi back in 2009.

Actors Alexander Skarsgard, Chadwick Boseman, and Rita Ora also sat front row.

As did supermodel Natalia Vodianova and LVMH's Antoine Arnault.


Louis Vuitton's classic Keepall appeared in many different variations.

The Keepall was launched in 1930 and has been done in almost every color and pattern, but this is the first time the style has been released in transparent vinyl.

If you're more into subdued pieces, this all-white Keepall will surely suit your style.


We also got a closer look at Abloh's debut sneaker for Louis Vuitton.

Abloh previously described the sneaker as what he thinks "is a classic sneaker."

All of the bags were adorned with coated chains.


The belt bag remains a strong accessory for the season.

Neon, one of Abloh's signature colors, appeared on the accessories.


Louis Vuitton's Christopher backpack was done in white mink fur with green accents.

What's a Louis Vuitton show without a trunk?


Unlike previous trunk designs, this one was done in black with matte black hardware.

Another Louis Vuitton signature, the Steamer, appeared in a supple-looking embossed leather.

We're particularly taken with this striking trunk-style bag.
