Virgil Abloh Passes Away

R.I.P. Virgil Abloh

The music and fashion world is mourning the loss of Virgil Abloh.

On Sunday (Nov. 28), the designer for Louis Vuitton and Off-White passed away after a private battle with cancer. He was 41.

“We are devastated to announce the passing of our beloved Virgil Abloh, a fiercely devoted father, husband, son, brother, and friend,” read the post on his Instagram account. “He is survived by his loving wife Shannon Abloh, his children Lowe Abloh and Grey Abloh, his sister Edwina Abloh, his parents Nee and Eunice Abloh, and numerous dear friends and colleagues.”

For over two years, Virgil battled a “rare, aggressive form of cancer, cardiac angiosarcoma”. “He chose to endure his battle privately since his diagnosis in 2019, undergoing numerous challenging treatments, all while helming several significant institutions that span fashion, art, and culture.”

Virgil founded the Off-White in 2013 and served as Kanye West’s creative director. In 2018, he was named artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear ready wear line, becoming the first African-American artistic director of the brand. Earlier this year, he released his single “Delicate Limbs” featuring lectro-soul musician serpentwithfeet.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Virgil’s family and friends,
