Louis Vuitton Announces Virgil As Creative Director

Virgil Abloh, the founder of the haute street wear label Off-White and a longtime creative director for Kanye West, will be the next artistic director of men’s wear at Louis Vuitton, one of the oldest and most powerful European houses in the luxury business. - NY Times


This is definitely one for the books. Being that Virgil will be Louis Vuitton's first black artistic director. There aren't many African-American designers in luxury fashion houses. Olivier Rousteing at Balmain and Ozwald Boateng at Givenchy ('03-'07) are the only ones to achieve such success. Congratulations to Virgil and those who've helped him get to this point. Lets take a look and appreciate Virgil's past endeavors and contributions to the "culture".
