Virgil Abloh was much more than the Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton Menswear and the founder of Off-White.
Abloh was a visionary, a mold-breaker, a creative genius, a fashion icon, a groundbreaker, a trailblazer, a disrupter, and a harbinger of change.
But most importantly, he was a devoted father, son, brother, and friend.
Abloh made the impossible possible.
He pioneered an entirely new sector of fashion: high-fashion streetwear.
He made space for Black designers in an industry heavily dominated by white voices.
He redefined the creative limits of our generation and inspired future generations to do the same.
We honor Virgil’s remarkable life by reflecting on his work that will define our cultural zeitgeist for eternity.
