Louis Vuitton Appoints Virgil Abloh As Its New Men’s Artistic Director of the fashion label Louis Vuitton.
“American designer, DJ and stylist Virgil Abloh came to prominence as Kanye West’s creative director. He has since made waves in the fashion world with his luxury streetwear label, Off-White, culminating in his appointment as artistic director of menswear at Louis Vuitton in March 2018.”
The 37-year-old will become, alongside Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing, one of only two people of color in charge of a major fashion house. He replaces Kim Jones, who left in January to become men’s wear designer for Christian Dior.
