Achievement
This year we saw Virgil Abloh turn the fashion world on its head when he took over Louis Vuitton as Artistic Director. Just recently delivering his first collection, the Chicago is undoubtedly going to change the landscape of fashion as we know it next year. Taking a quick look at his achievements this year, Virgil dabbled in just about everything. Aside from his art shows with Takashi Murakami, the modern day renaissance man has been touring the world under his Flat White DJ moniker and releasing collaboration after collaboration. As we have seen, practically everything Virgil touches becomes hyped. In 2019, we can expect more Off-White™ x Nike sneakers, RIMOWA suitcase and just about anything else you can imagine.
