The shockwaves surrounding the sudden death of fashion designer Virgil Abloh have yet to subside, Abloh is once again making his presence felt with his final collection. Today's Louis Vuitton Menswear Show with the Spring/Summer 2022 collection will be held In Memoriam to one of the fashion industry's greatest iconic figures of recent years. There will also be unseen looks that the designer was the last working on.
An emotional au revoir with timing that Virgil Abloh should keep, by the way, in view of his imminent passing:
"At the request of Virgil Abloh and his wife Shannon, the presentation of the Spring/Summer 2022 collection in Miami will celebrate the life and legacy of the creative genius," according to a Maison's press release.
How did he design his last collection and what messages did he convey in it? These are the questions one asks oneself in advance since Abloh has become known for his striking messages. And this is also manifested in the title of his collection: Virgil was here.
The show starts on 30 November 2021 at 23.30 (CET).
