After the death of his great friend Virgil Abloh, Kim Kardashian’s ex can take over …
Following the death of Virgil Abloh, the former creative director of Louis Vuitton, his close friend, rapper Kanye West is said to become the creative director of the menswear brand, in his place.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “Kanye is devastated by Virgil’s death because they had been friends for years and worked a lot together. They shared a similar vision and now Kanye feels he owes Virgil to continue his work at Louis Vuitton. ”
Before the death of Virgil, who lost his battle with cancer last month, he and West had been chatting about Kanye’s new role at the fashion house.
The two were great friends. They met at Fendi in 2009 when they began learning about fashion, and the following year, Kanye’s friend became creative director of his company Donda.
Virgil was diagnosed in 2019 with a rare form of cancer and heroically continued working in fashion while going through ‘numerous challenging treatments’. He leaves behind his wife Shannon Abloh and their two sons, Lowe Abloh and Gray Abloh.
