This week, Louis Vuitton presented its Autumn-Winter 2022 menswear showcase at Paris Fashion Week, rolling out the final collection created by Virgil Abloh before he passed away at age 41 in November last year.
Marking a fitting end to a glorious era in the luxury fashion house’s history, the collection titled ‘Louis Dreamhouse’ was unveiled on a stage with a full orchestra performing from an extended dining room table, with other remnants of a home like an empty bed and a clock stopped at 8:00pm on display.
There were nearly 90 models and dancers who brought the show to life and showcased the pieces, which included Virgil hallmarks like spike-eared hats, varsity jackets and colorful editions of the House’s signature Keepall duffel bags.
Virgil was at the helm of Louis Vuitton’s menswear for eight seasons and imbued it with a streetwear sensibility since he joined as the creative director of menswear in 2018.
