With temperatures soaring in the French capital, Louis Vuitton held an outdoor presentation celebrating the end of the global pandemic and a return, of sorts, to normality. 

Taking their front row seats on a colourful playground themed set, guests were treated to a first look at the designer’s forthcoming line in male dress-wear, with an emphasis on soft colours and relaxed tailoring. 

With the new collection in mind, rapper Tyga opted for a pair of generously cut white slacks beneath a garishly embellished varsity jacket from the French designer. 

The 32-year old added to his look with a pair of chunky lilac high-tops, while a matching cap rounded it off.

Thursday’s dreamlike show, which followed the tragic death of Vuitton designer Virgil Abloh in November 2021, began with the emergence of an all-black marching band from Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Florida.

The opening prelude, titled Strange Math, saw the troupe transported from a pre-recorded alternate reality Paris to the live event, during which they marched the specially erected circular stage upon which guests were seated.
