After the departure of Kim Jones, we all wondered who would succeed him as the artistic director for Louis Vuitton menswear. Well, this morning the company announced that their new AD would be none other than the celebrity favorite, Virgil Abloh, creator and founder of Off-White. Following the announcement, the designer told Vogue UK: “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.” Virgil also posted this picture on his Instagram account to celebrate the beginning of this new adventure!
