Today, Louis Vuitton made a very important announcement concerning Virgil Abloh. The Off-White founder and designer will be the new Artistic Director of Men’s collections at Louis Vuitton, replacing Kim Jones–and we couldn’t be more excited. Why, you ask? Abloh will be the first African American in this position at Louis Vuitton, a huge deal for the black community.

In addition to that, Abloh is just a fashion genius. The 37-year old is constantly taking his brand to another level, forging his empire and taking us along with him. Abloh said earlier in the year, “My trajectory is to update and provide something new in the fashion industry by way of creating a project and using it as a case study on how to update a luxury house.” This man will definitely take Louis Vuitton Men’s collections to another level and I can’t wait to see what he has in store.
