“Black imagination manifesting itself in real life” is how Virgil Abloh described the Louis Vuitton Men’s SS21 show. One of the few houses to schedule a physical show post COVID-19, the LV show took place on a dock at the port of Shanghai, with music by Lauryn Hill and a live band.
The collection started off with a series of tailored suits, but Abloh’s offering quickly shifted, with each outfit becoming increasingly more abstract. Cut-outs, vibrants colours and high contrast patterns were seen, military jackets were reimagined in bright pink hues, and the cloud theme, reminiscent of past shows, was presented on tracksuits, tailored jackets and accessories.
Vivid plaid patterns, along with yellow and cobalt suits gave the show an overall 70’s feel, and the show’s playfulness was cemented by inflatable LV animals attached to garments.
Some of the pieces may have looked familiar, as some garments were reissued, and materials were recycled from past shows.
The show ended on a positive note, with Lauryn Hill announcing the donations that Louis Vuitton and Abloh will be making to Black businesses.
