Virgil pioneering high end streetwear…

Previously I mentioned that Virgil was not only onto rising the bar for high end streetwear but was also a pioneer for his efforts through his Off-White brand to create a new fashion direction for the culture. Not only is a long time friend with Louis Vuitton previous sneaker designer Kanye West, Virgil has recently been appointed the Men’s Wear head designer for the world’s biggest high end brand.

In 2017 the brand was dubbed the world’s most desirable luxury fashion brand, earning Louis Vuitton with a $28.8 billion USD in net-worth and adding the recently and most previously Jimmy Choo and Nike Lab collaborator to his list of lead positions which will usher in a new era for the LV luxury business brand globally thanks to what Off White has achieved thus far. Via a brief interview with the NYT, Virgil expound on what working with the global brand meant to him…

“I feel elated,” Mr. Abloh said via phone on Sunday, adding that he planned to relocate his family to Paris to take the job at the largest brand in the stable of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the world’s largest luxury group. “This opportunity to think through what the next chapter of design and luxury will mean at a brand that represents the pinnacle of luxury was always a goal in my wildest dreams. And to show a younger generation that there is no one way anyone in this kind of position has to look is a fantastically modern spirit in which to start.”

Virgil has creative collaborations currently with Jimmy Choo, Nike, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami among other brands. What the streets is really worried about? Is how this new positions affects their NIKE/Jordan brand releases.
