Louis Vuitton showcased its spin-off Fall/Winter 2021 collection in Seoul. The looks, created by Men’s Creative Director Virgil Abloh, consist of 34 new designs that expand on the earlier men’s fall/winter 2021 collection, released in January.
The group’s seven members, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook, modelled seven looks from the collection, as the K-pop group strutted in vivid greens, eye-catching reds, aeroplane-embellished suits and metallic brief cases.

Directed by the Korean director Jeon Go-woon, the fashion film stages a conversation between space, movement, and global connectivity central to our moment in time, and explores the city of Seoul through the lens of diversity. The soundtrack featured an original score written and produced by CIFIKA, Kim Kate ad NET GALA.
The spin-off show echoes ‘The Voyage’ format initiated by Virgil Abloh in 2020, wherein collections and shows travel to the destinations of Louis Vuitton’s global community, meeting clients in their own parts of the world. Throughout ‘The Voyage’ – which transcend traditional seasonality – collections transform in ex-changes across cultures and nations, observing the core values of diversity, inclusivity and unity key to the practice of Abloh. ‘The Voyage’ additionally lends itself to the multi-faceted ‘Upcycling Initiative’ launched for Louis Vuitton men’s collections in 2020.

Earlier this year, BTS made history as the first Korean pop group to be nominated at the Grammy Awards for best pop duo/group performance. In February they spoke to USA TODAY about their historic nomination for their chart-topping English-language hit, “Dynamite.”
“We’re still figuring out what to make of it. But we do know this is a great honor and we’re deeply thankful. We’re trying our best to deliver a great performance to return all the support we received from our fans,” group member Jimin said via an interpreter.
