Artistic visionary Virgil Abloh dead at 41

Virgil Abloh, CEO of Off-White, artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear collection, and DJ/producer, has died at the age of 41. Abloh was diagnosed with cardiac angiosarcoma in 2019, a “rare and aggressive form of cancer.” He “chose to endure his battle privately since his diagnosis…undergoing numerous challenging treatments, all while helming several significant institutions that span fashion, art, and culture,” his team wrote in a November 28 statement announcing his death from the disease.

The visionary is survived by his wife Shannon Abloh, his children Lowe Abloh and Grey Abloh, his sister Edwina Abloh, and his parents Nee and Eunice Abloh.
