The Louis Vuitton charms were made with a 3D Printer in Eat Crow Studio and his hair was styled by Ciera Jackson. Juliano said that it took six months and multiple tries for his idea to become a reality.

Juliano told Vogue that his look pays homage to his African-American roots as well as Vuitton designer Virgil Abloh: “African American roots are rich in hair jewelry and headdress—it’s our fabric. I chose [to pay tribute to] Louis Vuitton because of the impact [the brand has] had on art and design, but from the perspective of designers like Dapper Dan, who didn’t have access to [luxury brands], yet still made hip hop couture using their likeness.” Adding, “Virgil, a brilliant black streetwear creative, is helming one of the biggest fashion houses in history. That representation makes me feel like the sky is the limit!”
