Celebrating "life and legacy."
Honouring the memory of the incomparable Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton recently announced they’d be dedicating the label’s Spring/Summer 2022 menswear show in Miami to the “life and legacy” of the beloved designer who passed away yesterday.
Simultaneously debuting a short video titled ‘Virgil Was Here,’ the news is accompanied with a statement from Chairman and CEO of Louis Vuitton, Michael Burke:
“It is with profound sorrow that I learned of the passing of Virgil Abloh. Virgil was not only a friend, great collaborator, creative genius, visionary and disruptor, but also one of the best cultural communicators of our times. He paved the way for future generations. As a devoted supporter of his community through his charities and passions, he was an eternal optimist who believed anything was possible. In this same spirit, we at Louis Vuitton will proudly continue to celebrate his legacy with a final show in Miami, per his wishes. I am honored to have called him my friend. My deepest thoughts are with his wife, children, parents, family and the entire community that was touched by his greatness.”
The show will take place tomorrow, 30th of November at the Miami Marine Stadium.
