Louis Vuitton menswear artistic director and Off-White brand founder Virgil Abloh died on November 28, 2021 after a two-year battle with a rare form of cancer. The fashion industry froze, because he did for her what had previously seemed impossible. Teen Vogue has dedicated a new cover to the famous designer.

The sister edition of fashion magazine Vogue not only released a special January cover, but also collected the memories of those who knew and worked with Virgil Abloh. The portrait of the legendary fashion designer was painted by a Ghanaian artist Otis Kwame Chie Quayco.

Perhaps most importantly, Abloh has changed those who the industry as a whole can take seriously. He was a young black guy who broke all the rules and influenced a generation with his instinctive talent.

He was the “gateway” to the whole culture.

– said Kervin Frostwho worked with Abloh.

True to his roots, Abloh created his label Off-White, which was not a typical luxury brand – it was a high-fashion streetwear brand and a new genre in the world of luxury.

The name Off-White was created for a reason. It “defined a gray area between black and white”. In its earliest stages, Off-White relied heavily on bold industrial graphics of arrows and crosswalks, similar to the signs seen in cities. As the brand has grown, Abloh has expanded the range and redesigned the aesthetic to be more refined.

Abloh “infiltrated” the world of high fashion, a world that “was not made for him.” His presence in the high fashion world then led the industry to take streetwear, black style, and other young black designers more seriously.

– told Aria Hughes, Associate Style Editor for Complex Magazine.
