Tyler, the Creator Composes Soundtrack For Louis Vuitton Runway Show
Louis Vuitton presented its Men’s Fall/ Winter 2022 collection by Virgil Abloh in Paris on Thursday, soundtracked by an original score composed by Tyler, the Creator.
The show was available to stream in full via Louis Vuitton’s YouTube channel and website. This comes days after a temporary SoHo residency honoring Abloh’s life and legacy was announced.
Ahead of the livestream aired on Thursday, Louis Vuitton shared a prelude to the show at the Carreau du Temple featuring a collection designed by Abloh, who died last November at the age of 41.
Tyler responded to a fan’s Twitter inquiry about his involvement with the show’s music, offering a simple “bingo” when asked if he composed the soundtrack.
In a recent interview with Fast Company, Tyler expressed his appreciation for Abloh’s support and contributions when he was in the early stages of launching his luxury clothing line Golf Le Fleur.
“I wanted him here so bad to see like, ‘Hey, look what I did,’” the Call Me If You Get Lost artist said. “Because I wanted him to just say, ‘Fire.’ And I wanted him to know.”
