Virgil Abloh presented his latest collection for Louis Vuitton during a livestream event on YouTube early Thursday, showcasing the brand’s menswear Fall/Winter 2021 offering in a collection he named ‘Ebonics.’
“Usually I have run-on sentences for days,” Abloh wrote on Instagram, “but today I don’t. My whole being has been poured out into this film here. The only thing important to me right now is that the names in the credits and every member of my team feels their genius. It’s not just fashion or films we make, it’s space for new stories and artworks to be placed.” Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton designer.
“Within my practice, I contribute to a Black canon of culture and art and its preservation. This is why, to preserve my own output, I record it at length.”
