Virgil Abloh posthumously presents the Louis Vuitton Men’s Fall Winter 2022 show in Paris. The eighth chapter in Abloh’s arc at Louis Vuitton, the collection is dedicated to “seeing the world with the unspoiled eyes of a child…The mind of a child knows no limits; no prejudice. The ideology informs a collection that tears up and transmutes the dress codes popularly tied to societal archetypes – tailoring, sportswear, dresses – and patchworks them in new ways.”
A cinematic prelude directed by Caleb Femi, below, imagines a metaphysical space of possibility: a mind-expanding interior of ideas, prospects and encouragement, which opens a door to the runway.
“In the coming-of-age story central to Virgil Abloh’s inspirational and aspirational premise at Louis Vuitton, his boy hero experiences a rite of passage: a passing-of-the-torch, a triumph, a resolve.”
“We are a generation that’s searching for what rules you can break.
Or, which rules are the real ones.”
“The world produces waves. Surf or drown, you decide.”
