BTS Leads Louis Vuitton Men's FW21 Runway in Seoul
Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook stun in Virgil Abloh’s latest designs.
For the first time, the House’s global brand ambassadors BTS took part in the show, adding an extra dimension to the moving-image performance. “[The collection] investigates the unconscious biases instilled in our collective psyche by the archaic norms of society. Predetermined perceptions, they imbue our outlooks with manmade myths connected to the genetics of people, ideas and art,” the show’s notes stated.
Directed by Jeon Go-woon, the collection’s film stars none other than Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook dressed in the label’s latest designs. The 41-look spin-off features 34 new looks, which BTS showcased two different fits each. Standouts include RM in a green striped shirt and tie under a long boxy shouldered coat featuring airplanes as buttons. Elsewhere, Suga is seen in a blazer version of RM’s coat with a statement white and green bag with the phrase, “SAME PLACE AT THE SAME TIME.” Meanwhile, J-hope stunned in a grayish-blue suit covered in an intricate pattern along with graphics of the Egyptian pyramids.
