Louis Vuitton pulls Michael Jackson-themed items from collection

LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE-owned Louis Vuitton is pulling Michael Jackson-themed items from its 2019 summer menswear collection following the release of a documentary featuring allegations of child abuse against the late pop star, Reuters reported March 16, citing a company spokeswoman.

The new collection is expected to launch in stores in June after being featured in January at the Paris Fashion Week, but a spokeswoman for Louis Vuitton said that Jackson-themed pieces would not be up for sale, Reuters said.

In a statement released exclusively to Women's Wear Daily on March 14, Louis Vuitton Men's Artistic Director Virgil Abloh said: "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."

The luxury brand also said it will no longer produce any item "that directly features Michael Jackson elements" and that the collection that will ultimately reach stores would "purely reflect the true values of the brand and of our artistic director," WWD reported. It added that at the time of the Paris fashion event, it was not aware of HBO's "Leaving Neverland" documentary, in which two adult men narrated detailed accounts of Jackson's abuse.

Pulling the Jackson-themed items should not have a major impact on the Louis Vuitton brand as the menswear unit is a relatively small part of the brand's business, according to the Reuters report.
