On Thursday, Louis Vuitton showed its final designs by the late Virgil Abloh, who died in November at the age of 41.
Staged in Paris, the Louis Dreamhouse set featured parts of a house scattered around the runway, with a staircase separate from a dining table, roof and chimney. There was also a clock stopped at eight — a nod to Abloh’s eighth and final collection for the French fashion house.
Music composed by Tyler, the Creator played while the rapper himself rode a red bicycle around the set.
Naomi Campbell, a close friend of Abloh’s, posed for photos with his wife, Shannon, and also hit the catwalk in a long white coat and matching suit.

Campbell posted a clip of her runway walk on Instagram, dedicating it to “angels” Abloh and André Leon Talley, the longtime Vogue editor who died earlier this week.
“Was an honor and a privilege to be apart of this beautiful show; paying tribute to Virgil.This is just the beginning of what’s to unfold of your vision & legacy,” Campbell wrote.
Other celebrities in attendance included Venus Williams, Dave Chappelle, Victor Cruz, Evan Mock, Luka Sabbat and J. Balvin.

Abloh’s sudden death last year followed a private two-year battle with cancer, but fans can still get their hands on his fashion creations.
Earlier this week, Louis Vuitton and Nike announced a limited-edition drop of the late designer’s Air Force 1 sneakers, which will be auctioned at Sotheby’s and later released in Vuitton stores.
