Louis Vuitton unveils Virgil Abloh's final collection at Paris Fashion Week
Virgil Abloh's Men’s Fall/Winter 2022 for Louis Vuitton was presented on Thursday as part of Paris Fashion Week.
It is the last collection made by fashion designer and artistic director of Louis Vuitton menswear, Virgil Abloh, who passed away of cancer in November aged just 41.
His last show was built around the concept of the "Louis' Dreamhouse" and broke the gender norms of masculinity in the designs by including dresses and skirts to the men’s collection.
Abloh is quoted in the show notes saying: "I don't believe in gender, I believe in design," which was a message reflected on the runway.
Throughout the show a Tyler the Creator soundtrack played with arrangements by Arthur Verocai and creative direction by Benji B.
Tyler wrote eight new pieces for the show and tweeted the word “blessed” whilst also sharing an Instagram story writing “I love y’all,” with an image of the musicians at the show.
