Virgil Abloh’s off-white brand has made major waves in the fashion industry and beyond. The multitasking rapper has also collaborated with brands such as MCA and Louis Vuitton. Recently, Abloh released his first original production with Berlin-based producer Boys Noize. Over the past few months, Abloh has branched out into music and fashion as well, launching a Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music.
In 2009, Abloh served as an intern at Fendi, a fashion label owned by Kanye West. Abloh was tapped by the rapper to work on his designs, and soon after, became the creative director of DONDA, Kanye West’s creative content company. He also worked on Kanye West’s “Watch the Throne” album and even worked with the rapper as the artistic director. Abloh holds an architectural master’s degree, but he learned his craft in Chicago graffiti and hip-hop.
After the success of his first clothing line, Virgil Abloh went on to launch a second line: Off-White. The brand has gained widespread fame and is now marketed to a prestigious clientele. Abloh’s pieces are easily recognizable, thanks to hazard tape, zip-ties, and quotation marks. In August, Virgil Abloh’s Off-White clothing line debuted at Paris Fashion Week, and he was named a finalist for the LVMH Prize for his work. The brand’s success has earned him a spot on the list of best menswear designers.
Virgil Abloh’s legacy has spanned multiple genres, including streetwear, menswear, and accessories. His work has been recognized by celebrities and designers alike, including Kanye West and Travis Scott. Previously, Abloh was the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear line. After the show, Abloh and West shared an emotional embrace.
Virgil Abloh’s debut collection for Louis Vuitton
Virgil Abloh, who was named the menswear artistic director at Louis Vuitton earlier this year, has debuted his first collection for the French brand. A native of Chicago, Abloh made history by becoming the first African-American to lead the company’s menswear line. Abloh’s debut collection was attended by celebrities and a thousand students.
The collection was inspired by his lifelong obsession with graffiti and skateboarding. Virgil Abloh’s debut collection for Louis Vuitton’s menswear division is a bold and innovative statement about the future of fashion. Abloh’s designs made a splash on the runway, with leather bibs, tie-dye, and neon harnesses. He also reimagined the iconic Louis Vuitton bags and accessories.
Abloh’s collection also echoes the philosophy of surrealist painter Rene Magritte. The collection was described as a metaphysical space of possibility with wiggly models, painted clothes, and oversized paint cans. The collection was shot with a fisheye lens and several surreal elements. Even the packaging had an element of surrealism, including a wooden woodpecker toy.
Virgil Abloh’s vision is unmatched, and his new position as artistic director at Louis Vuitton is a testament to his unconventional approach to the industry. His collection was punctuated with paper planes and other playful elements. In his own words, he “spreads across the arts with a childlike wonder.”
Virgil Abloh’s eponymous label’s name will be forever engraved on the brand’s iconic luggage. His debut collection for Louis Vuitton will be sold at several stores around the world, including the ION Orchard store and Takashimaya. He also released a fanzine, which will commemorate the Miami show. The zine will be available for purchase at 0FR, which was Abloh’s favorite bookstore.
The collection’s design concept is “Faison”, two-way worship of the designer and his clients. Despite the lack of collaboration between the two entities, the collection is nevertheless a striking and impressive debut for Abloh. With his first collection, he showcased his signature rainbow catwalk populated by Paris students, a model from every continent except Antarctica.
