The Men’s Spring-Summer 2021 show in Tokyo featured a bespoke soundscape of live music designed by an all-star ensemble, recorded in London’s Church Studios. Portrayed in an atmospheric film, the performances are layered with the poem “Brother” written and read by Caleb Femi. Screened during the show, the cinematic experience captures the Black Imagination at the core of Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh’s work at Louis Vuitton.
