Tyler, the designer scored a Louis Vuitton fashion show hosted by the late Virgil Abloh – watch the full show from Paris this week below.

The Fall/Winter 2022 menswear show was held at Carreau du Temple this week (January 20) and ended with an appearance by Tyler himself, cycling down the catwalk.

A synopsis of the new collection read, “The 𝓛𝓸𝓾𝓲𝓼 Dreamhouse™️ presents the Men’s Fall-Winter 2022 collection, consolidating themes and messages from the eight-season arc created by Virgil Abloh for Louis Vuitton. Imagining a metaphysical space of possibilities, the Carreau du Temple in Paris transforms into an interior of ideas, perspectives and encouragement that expands the mind.

“Through the lens of Virgil Abloh’s Central Ideology of Childhood®, seeing the world through the eyes of a child, the collection transmutes dress codes typically tied to societal archetypes and quilts in new ways. Through materials and techniques, surreal gestures take shape, abstracting the familiar and expanding our horizons.

Virgil Abloh died on November 28 last year after battling an aggressive form of cancer for more than two years. “Virgil was not just a genius designer, a visionary; he was also a man with a beautiful soul and great wisdom,” LVMH Chairman Bernard Arnault said in a statement confirming Abloh’s passing. Abloh had been the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear line since 2018.

The death of Abloh – who collaborated extensively with Kanye West as creative director and also worked on visual design elements for Lil Uzi Vert and Westside Gunn – was met with an outpouring of tributes from the music world , fashion and culture.

West dedicated an edition of his Sunday Service livestream to Abloh, with the Sunday Service Choir performing a cover of Adele’s “Easy On Me” as a tribute. Others who have paid tribute to Abloh include Drake, BROCKHAMPTON’s Kevin Abstract, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and many more.

Following Abloh’s death, Tyler, the Creator shared a lengthy statement honoring the creator. He wrote: “Sir Abloh was a real connoisseur of things. Passion seeped into everything he did. Whether it’s a random set of songs we’ve never heard or the pantone that an airplane wing should be, he always meant it.

“Sometimes part of us sharing our crazy ideas is getting approval from our peers to keep pushing, but Virgil has ALWAYS been a cheerleader. For everyone. This hand of his hand opened the doors, led people inside, and threw the keys outside for the next person to have.
