The first stop of Louis Vuitton’s menswear tour was in Shanghai, where Virgil Abloh described his collection as a “Trojan horse for the mind”. Now, he’s brought his brain-altering spectacle and outsize animals to Tokyo, where films by Takashi Miike and Caleb Femi were cut with footage of jazz musicians in the studio. Atop Tokyo’s International Cruise Terminal, the Abloh presented a colourful homage to his many inspirations. Chikashi Suzuki was there to document the evening.
