Christine Centenera tapped by Virgil Abloh for Louis Vuitton debut
Christine Centenera, stylist and Vogue Autralia’s fashion director, has an impressive new side gig. The fashion creative has been tapped by Louis Vuitton’s new menswear artistic director Virgil Abloh to consult on the his first collection as well as style his first show which will be presented at Paris Fashion Week Men’s this week.
Centenera has been back and forth on the project since April, and left for Paris on Friday as part of the final preparations for the show as reported by WWD. While Centenera’s main job is at Vogue Australia, she has built an impressive styling career for herself having worked with Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and Estée Lauder. Centener and Abloh connected when they were both working with Kanye West.
We’ve recut & re-issued our Release 01 Tailored Wardrobe. I’m wearing here. For a limited run until May 7. Go to www.wardrobe.nyc @wardrobe.nyc
Centenera has worked with Kanye West on his runway shows since his debut spring 2012 womenswear show, when Abloh was creative director of West’s creative agency Donda.
Abloh clearly has love for his friends down under. Australian stylist Stevie Dance, who has been a longtime collaborator of his, will be styling the Off-White show. This Paris Fashion Week Men’s will certainly have its flair of Australian flavor.
