Louis Vuitton "Virgil" MIAMI 21'

Louis Vuitton has payed their respects to Virgil Abloh in light of his recent passing at Art Basel 2021


A Louis Vuitton runway show meant to mark the opening of a gleaming new men’s wear store in Miami’s Design District became a moving tribute to Virgil Abloh, as friends, collaborators and fans paid their respects under fireworks and a drone light show.

On Tuesday, as the sun set over Miami’s harbor, around 1,500 guests piled onto Louis Vuitton-branded speedboats and ferries, and made their way to the Miami Marine Stadium, a former water sports arena. The causeway was dredged to accommodate the runway barge, which was decorated with birch trees and black paper airplanes, a recurring theme in Mr. Abloh’s work.
