You can't miss the latest pop-up experience in the West Loop. No, really—the building at 1100 W Randolph Street is painted a shade of orange that's impossible to ignore. Louis Vuitton will open the technicolored doors to its first-ever Chicago pop-up on Saturday, June 8. The space is a living, breathing celebration of the men's Fall/Winter 2019 collection, designed by Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton's men's artistic director.

The storefront is open to the public and will feature a limited-edition collection of ready-to-wear accessories that were designed exclusively for Chicago. The entire line is bright orange—just like the building's exterior—including sunglasses, a leather cap, sneakers and a chain belt. Each piece is emblazoned with Louis Vuitton's signature initials.

You'll see more of Abloh throughout Chicago this month, as the Museum of Contemporary Art debuts its highly anticipated exhibition Virgil Abloh: "Figures of Speech" on Monday, June 10. The show explores the designer's career—including his time as creative director to Kanye West and his popular streetwear company Off-White. He's also teamed up with NikeLab Chicago on the Re-Creation center, which will host workshops and an arts-focused mentorship program.

Take a look around the Louis Vuitton pop-up residency below—and peep some of the orange-hued products you can find inside, too. The store is open through July 7; stop in Monday through Thursday from 11am to 7pm, Friday and Saturday from 11am to 8pm and Sunday from noon to 6pm.
