Louis Vuitton, homage to Virgil Abloh under the Great Vault of the Carreau du Temple in Paris

Louis Vuitton wanted to pay homage to Virgil Abloh, who passed away last November, with the incredible parade of his latest collection, which took place under the great vault of the Carreau du Temple in Paris.

A video preceded the show, a collection of creative ideas contained in the mystical world of Virgil Abloh that slowly descended from the door of Heaven to the World of men, transforming themselves into garments worn by artists, dancers and wearers.

There are all the outfits that we used to see in previous seasons, when the maison’s men’s wardrobe was linked to the concept of “fluid”, of a present that mixes the top and the bottom, elected as the new voice of luxury.

Louis Vuitton’s autumn / winter 2022 is made up of sartorial balances and high quality fabrics, to create a street style wardrobe that reminds us of the nineties: super soft teddy sweatshirts paired with Bermuda shorts with long socks with cuffs up to the knee underneath, or impeccable tailored three-piece suits with jacket, waistcoat and trousers, combined with white shirts and tie, all in shades of white.

The only provocation, but perhaps also a game, is the insertion of tulle, which we find in long multilayer skirts or baseball cups that hide the face, covered with diamond baguettes or the LV monogram.

Another concession to cross dressing is the “cartoon” hat reminiscent of some childhood fairy tales, certainly destined to become one of the cool pieces of next winter’s wardrobe.

Sneakers are worn on the feet, while bags, backpacks and other accessories of all shapes and sizes are playfully created in all colors through pop inserts or LV figures embroidered, printed or in relief.

A testimony of the value of Virgil Abloh, who since his first collection for the maison has focused on individual freedom of expression, so that every single garment can take on a meaning, a value and a thought according to who it is worn.
