It could even be Kanye West, according to reports from the Daily Mail, Virgil Abloh’s successor who passed away last November 28 at the age of 41, at the creative direction of Louis Vuitton menswear. The two, longtime friends, met in 2009 as Fendi interns in Rome, and their relationship has never ceased since then. Kanye West appointed Virgil Abloh creative director of his company Donda in 2010 and there have been numerous stylistic collaborations over the years.
