Kanye West Rumored to Succeed Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton

The Louis Vuitton Don is rumored to take over as the Louis Vuitton Don as The Sun reports that Kanye West will succeed Virgil Abloh as the Creative Director of Louis Vuitton, less than two weeks after his untimely passing after a two-year battle with cancer. Take it with a grain of salt, as The Sun is basically a tabloid and extremely unreliable, ask any soccer/football fan.

According to the piece, Kanye and Virgil had this in place before Virgil’s passing. A source to The Sun stated “Kanye is devastated about Virgil’s death because they had been friends for years and worked together a lot. They shared a similar vision and now Kanye feels he owes it to Virgil to continue his work at Louis Vuitton.”

Kanye has stated his previous jealousy of Virgil and his position at LV early on but has always been an avid and vocal supporter of Abloh, most notably when they shared a heartfelt moment and hug at Abloh’s first LV show for S/S ’19 at Fashion Week in Paris.

Only time will tell if this is true or not, but we’re going with the latter.
