BTS are showing off their style as the stars of a new film showcasing Virgil Abloh's Louis Vuitton fall/winter 2021 menswear collection.

The designer surprised fashionistas on Wednesday with the release of a spin-off film dedicated to his latest creations, which featured members of the K-pop band.

Each member of the group wears one never before seen look from the new collection in the 10 minute movie, directed by Jeon Go-woon and Park Sye-young.

The show featured a scaffolding skyscraper in an industrial warehouse, made of metal framing with red staircases, with RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook strutting around the neon-lit structure, filled with mannequins dressed in Louis Vuitton, while modelling Abloh's latest looks.

In the film, RM donned a striking dark fedora and long coat with aeroplane buttons, as well as a dark green striped shirt and tie, while Jimin went for a lighter look with a beige coloured suit, completing the look with Louis Vuitton wraparound shades.

Most striking, however, was J-Hope who wore a dramatic LV Wax shirt and suit that has the brand's iconic logo in a pattern, featuring a map and two circles containing the words 'Louis Vuitton' spread across the torso.

Other members showcased the sharpest suits, coats and bags from the luxury French brand's latest line.

The group were announced as Louis Vuitton ambassadors in April, and Abloh, the fashion house's men's artistic director, has told Women's Wear Daily why he loves working with the Korean stars.

"Seoul has such unique energy and BTS embody this vibe completely," he said. "They add their spin to the collection, make it their own, and take it to new heights."

Within an hour of the video appearing online, it had racked up two million views.
