The former Crack Magazine cover star soundtracked Virgil Abloh’s second collection for Louis Vuitton yesterday (17 January).

The artist confirmed the news via Instagram, stating that he worked with Ian Isiah, Mikey Freedom Hart, Jason RC, Abloh and Benji B on arrangements and the live performance.

Furthermore, Octavian – who Crack Magazine cited as one of 25 artists shaping the future of music – modelled LV’s AW19 collection. It’s not the first time the south London artist has walked the runway for the French fashion house, having made his catwalk and Louis Vuitton debut at last season’s show.
