Take a Look at Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2022 Fashion Show

The collection was captured through a new fashion show/short film ‘Amen Break’, directed by Mahfuz Sultan

The Off-White CEO Virgil Abloh brought Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2022 men’s collection to life with the assistance of collaborators GZA, Goldie, Saul Williams, Issa Perica, Caleb Femi, Unknown T, JIM JOE, Kandis Williams, Thelma Buabeng, Octavia Burgel, Lupe Fiasco, Julian Eugene Tsukasa Williams, Damian Eugene Nagisa Williams, Shabaka Hutchings, Malik Le Nost, and more.

According to a press release the 16-minute film is built on an “abstract interpretation” of the story of Lupe Fiasco — whose father organized a martial arts studies on the South Side of Chicago as a way for young people to stay out of trouble. The title of the fashion show/short film, ‘Amen Break’, comes from one of the most sampled and identifiable six-second drum breaks in music history. The break first appeared on the song “Amen, Brother” by the Winstons but didn’t achieve cross-genre ubiquity until decades later.

Also featured in the Spring/Summer 2022 short film/fashion show is the showcasing of a number of previously unseen Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1s.
