Virgil Abloh, creative director of the men's line of Louis Vuitton and founder of Off-White, has died. He was only 41 years old.

One of the most influential designers of our time, Virgil Abloh, has been battling oncology for several years.

This is stated in a statement by LVMH.

“We are all amazed at this terrible news. Virgil was not only a brilliant designer and visionary, but also a man with a good soul and great wisdom,” said Bernard Arnault, head and CEO of LVMH.

Abloh joined Louis Vuitton in March 2018 and his first show in June 2018 marked a new chapter in fashion history: the moment street fashion smashed the sacred halls of luxury brands.

September 2019 of the year, the designer said he was taking a break from work as directed by a doctor. He never specified the nature of his illness.
