Ghana’s Virgil Abloh Is Louis Vuitton’s New Menswear Designer

The 37-year-old Ghanaian designer Virgil Abloh has just been named the menswear Artistic Director for Parisian luxury house, Louis Vuitton.

Virgil takes over from his friend, Kim Jones who stepped down from the role in January.

Before now, Virgil has been floating his clothing line, Off-White, which he will continue to work on after he assumes his new role at the LV headquarters. He’s also worked as Kanye West’s creative director.

Speaking on his appointment, the Ghanaian-American designer said, “It is an honour for me to accept the position of men’s artistic director for Louis Vuitton. I find the heritage and creative integrity of the house are key inspirations and will look to reference them both while drawing parallels to modern times,”
