Kanye West Rumored To Take Over Virgil Abloh’s Creative Director Role at Louis Vuitton
Previous to his part at Louis Vuitton, Abloh and West were longtime collaborators. The brace served as interns at Italian luxury brand Fendi, back in 2009, marking the morning of their decades-long fellowship. The Sun reports that the brace “manipulated” their successes in the creative assiduity together, latterly cementing Abloh as one of the most fat contrivers of this generation.
In 2010, Abloh came the cultural director to West’s company, Donda, turning all of West’s ideas into reality. Abloh also worked with Ye and JAY-Z for the Watch the Throne reader. A source told The Sun, With Ye and Abloh’s history, it isn’t surprising that the rapper feels this way. Away from being the long-term collaborator of West, Abloh piloted his own designs and cultural vision with the launch of his own brand Off-White ™ in 2013. In 2018, Abloh came to the first Black American creative director to sit at the part at a French luxury fashion house when he was appointed the leadership part at Louis Vuitton. Louis Vuitton is presently valued at nearly $50 billion USD with $15 billion USD in global deals.
West’s history with the Louis Vuitton house takes the assiduity back a decade ago when he collaborated with them on a line of extensively successful lurkers. The sneakers, which firstly vended for $1,100 USD in 2009, are now worth over $30,000 USD. Since also, Ye has also made swells in fashion assiduously with the launch of his Yeezy marker in 2015.
It remains to be seen if this scuttlebutt will be conceded.
