Watch the Louis Vuitton Men's Fall/Winter 2021 Spin-Off Fashion Show Live
This evening in Seoul, South Korea, Louis Vuitton is showing its fall/winter 2021 collection with the help of the fashion house's ambassadors and pop icons BTS. We know what you're thinking: didn't Louis Vuitton just present its spring 2022 collection? You're right. And, if you know your fashion calendar, you probably also know that Virgil Abloh sent down his fall 2021 collection at the start of the year.
This time, however, Louis Vuitton is presenting the fall/winter 2021 collection as a spin-off that will feature 34 new looks. Then, of course, there's the new stage as models will walk down Art Bunker B39, an art and culture space just outside of Seoul. The biggest highlight is a moving-image performance by BTS directed by Jeon Go-woon. As the fashion house describes it, the film "stages a conversation between space, movement, and global connectivity." Naturally, BTS will be dressed in Louis Vuitton looks for the art film.
In case you need a refresher: for fall/winter 2021, Abloh reprogramed dressing codes as he drew inspiration to his architectural roots. Abloh looked into archetypes that personified our dreams and aspirations as children like the artist, the salesman, the architect, and the drifter. It's these characters' archetypal uniforms and dress codes that Abloh wanted to challenge for the season.
The whole thing kicks off at 6:00 p.m. local time. It's a big event that we all wish we could attend in person, but there's still something to be said about enjoying Louis Vuitton and BTS from the comfort of our own home (preferably in sweats... Louis Vuitton loungewear, perhaps?). Enjoy.
