Tyler The Creator Provides Soundtrack To Virgil Abloh Paris Fashion Show: Look + Listen

For the Men’s Fall-Winter 2022 Collection during Paris Fashion Week, Tylerthe Creator provided the music on behalf of the late designer Virgil Abloh.

As the Louis Vuitton fashion show took place, the rapper/lyricist took to social media posting behind-the-scenes photos and a video from the event, acknowledged conductor Gustavo Dudamel (who led the Chineke! Orchestra,) arranger Arthur Verocai, and musical director Benji B for the 20-minute presentation, which doubled as a tribute to Abloh, who died in Nov. 2021 at the age of 41.

Following Abloh’s passing after a private battle with cancer, Tyler was among the many artists who paid tribute to the designer that had a significant impact on hip-hop, stating:

“Sir Abloh was a true geek about things. Passion seeped through everything he did. Whether a random set of songs we’ve never heard or what pantone the wing of a plane should be, he always meant it. “Sometimes, part of us sharing our wild ideas is to get approval from our peers to keep it pushing, but virgil was ALWAYS a cheerleader. For everyone. That hand of his opened doors, lead people in and tossed the keys outside for the next person to have. i wish i was able to see him see what his helping hand did for me. his spirit is around tho. i feel it. he’ll see it. i’ll keep pushing and trying things while leaving the door open. he’ll shake those pom-poms. we’ll keep that on loop.”
