January's run of menswear fashion shows in Paris were graced by the spirit of Michael Jackson Thursday, with designer Virgil Abloh paying homage to the King of Pop in his second runway collection for Louis Vuitton, one of this season’s most highly anticipated shows.

The Louis Vuitton runway show was a loving tribute to Jackson, staged days before the late singer will be the center of a much different kind of public event, next week’s Sundance Film Festival premiere of “Leaving Neverland,” a controversial new documentary in which two men accuse Jackson of molestation and misconduct.
