Louis Vuitton shared a video of the footballer getting excited to attend their ‘Men’s Spring-Summer 2024 Show’ on their Instagram page. Marcus admitted in the video that the event was his “first big show” despite having always been an influential fashion figure to his almost 16 million Instagram followers.

Marcus said: “Usually when they're on, it’s when we’ve got games and the season is in full flow.  So you never really get the opportunity to go to them. For me it’s Interesting, I’ve always been interested in fashion, especially LV’s.

“At home, I’m usually wearing Louis Vuitton and for me Louis Vuitton is just a step ahead of the rest of them. There’s so many outfits that you can put together, it’s ridiculous.”

The star revealed that he prefers to wear t-shirts that are “in the middle” rather than being fitted or oversized. He explained that he chose to wear Louis Vuitton’s Cotton Coach Jacket in green because he wanted to add a “pop” of colour to his outfit.

Marcus continued: “People who wear their stuff, we don’t need to necessarily understand the vision but for some reason when something drops it connects to a lot of people. I know a lot of my friends are wearing LV right now as well, so it’s a good time for Louis Vuitton.”

The Manchester United Forward joined celebrities including Jay-Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian and Lenny Kravitz in showing support for Pharrell at the sunset show. He was named the successor to the late Virgil Abloh in February, despite having not been formally trained as a fashion designer. The American musician, whose most memorable songs include ‘Happy’, ‘Get Lucky’ and ‘She Wants To Move’, has previously collaborated with Marc Jacobs, Moncler, Adidas and Chanel.

Marcus said: “Big, big congratulations to Pharrell. He’s a great person and he deserves all the success he’s going to get, which I’m sure him and LV will be a very, very successful partnership."

Marcus was sat next to equally stylish football player Jude Bellingham during the Paris Fashion Week show. He added that seeing Pharrell’s family join him on the catwalk after the show was the “best moment” because the musician has been working hard for a “long, long time.”

Pharrell, who has won 13 Grammy awards, showcased over 70 looks, a full orchestra and a gospel choir. According to CNN Style, Pharrell shared a tribute to the late Virgil Abloh describing the late artistic director as a “giant” in his show notes. The ‘Beautiful’ singer had previously paid tribute to him following his death at age 41, following a battle with cancer. 

“Virgil has always been a brother in spirit. Now, that is literally what we work with here,” Pharrell added in a press release. “He left a lot of hits with the House. As far as I’m concerned, I’m collaborating with his spirit. I’m honoured. When he got this appointment, I was really, really happy for him… It was crazy what the connections were, and the respect he had for us, and which we continue to have for him. I can tell you that Virgil and me being here has to say to kids who look like us, ‘Oh, I can do anything. I can be anything.’”
