2 Years Ago, We Lost One of The Most Influential People in the Fashion Industry, Rest in Paradise, Virgil.
The renowned fashion designer was known for shifting the landscape of streetwear and luxury fashion, serving as both the founder and CEO of his successful luxury label Off-White™, in addition to being the first Black fashion designer to lead Louis Vuitton’s menswear line. Between the mixed sneaker, video game, clothing collabs and DJ sets blended with menswear collections, Virgil did it all. We were also lucky enough to shoot and party with Virgil Abloh for a very rare DJ set at SETTINGS° back in the day.
Here, Virgil announced his arrival in style, swinging from the roof of the club above the 360-degree steel DJ booth stage and dovetailed into a selection of tracks from his famous friends Kanye West, Travis Scott and ASAP Rocky, mixed in with eclectic selections from Radiohead and Tame Impala.
TRUE ICON BEHAVIOUR.
The iconic & influential Virgil Abloh is one of the greatest designers of his era, and a true visionary that broke barriers in the world of fashion. May his legacy live forever, long live Virgil.
Virgil’s advice to aspiring creatives:
1. Elevate the environment.
2. Avoid perfectionism.
3. Less is more.
