In response to allegations of pedophilia after a documentary show on Michael Jackson in the United States, the Louis Vuitton brand decided to remove the mention of his collection in January, which was announced in January.
The luxury brand said on Thursday that it would sell "products that include a direct mention of Michael Jackson" in a statement released on Women's Wear Daily (WWD).
The Autumn Winter collection designed by Virgil Abloh was dedicated to the singer of "Thriller". The first black designer, who was invited to direct the French luxury lion, sent gloves covered with crystals like a pop singer.
Burgl Abloh has long praised the singer as a "childhood and symbol of adult life". He was "a boy who grew up in the slums of Indiana and became a symbol of the planetary union."
Asked by AFP, Vuitton did not send press releases to two media: WWD, a press release considered a fashion bible, and The Telegraph, a British newspaper.
"When I look at the documentary, I know that the parade has an emotional response," said Virgil Awwo, WWW. "I strongly condemn the forms of child abuse, violence or human rights violations."
This 4-hour documentary, aired on HBO on the US channel in early March, voices two men who talk about sexual abuse of a minor singer over the years.
These pedophilia accusations occur about 10 years after the overdose of the singer. They encouraged radio stations in Canada, Australia and New Zealand to stop making Michael Jackson titles.
This is not the first time Michael Jackson has been charged with child abuse. However, the format of the documentary, with its long and sophisticated testimony of the camera confirming each other, illuminates the artist under a brighter light than ever before.
