Off-White stores around the world including London, Hong Kong, Paris, Seoul, Miami, New York, and Tokyo have removed the merchandise off their shelves to make room for floral installations in memory of their founder and CEO Virgil Abloh.

“In a world where kindness is rare, where hierarchies still carry weight and where fashion can change the rules but sometimes ends up creating new ones, there was you,” reads the caption from the collective Off-White team. “Your extended family is heartbroken. We will miss you, Virgil. Your words constantly inspired us and gave us the courage to dare, to dream, to create. We’ll miss your WhatsApp messages, your laugh, your pure soul. We love you, Virgil.”

In addition to the spread of flowers, graffiti artwork, and “VIRGIL FOREVER” quotes line the walls and digital billboards in and around the stores. Virgil’s fans have also left behind heartfelt sticky notes expressing love and gratitude toward the prolific designer.

Take a look through the commemorative installations from the Off-White stores below.
