The fashion world mourns another heavyweight loss as it bids farewell to Virgil Abloh. The 41 year old founder of Off-White and Louis Vuitton's artistic director sadly succumbed to cancer, which he had privately battled since 2019.

The shocking announcement of his passing was made by @louisvuitton@lvmh and @virgilabloh via Instagram.

Dubbed one of fashion's most prolific and visionary creatives, Abloh amassed a cult following for his fusion between high fashion and streetwear. His innovative streaks for Off-White clearly didn't go unnoticed, as he then helmed the role of LV's first colored artistic director. 

Abloh's direction garnered a wider fanbase for the French label, particularly among hypebeasts. Some might say his handiwork were a bit on the weirder spectrum, but that's what Abloh was notorious for. 

Some of his most head-turning designs for LV: 

Cityscape Jackets

Yes, these jackets are wearable and functional! Dubbed the Paris Skyline and New York City Skyline Puffers, Abloh's walking 3D architectures were designed with the intention of altering people's perception toward dress codes.

Harness

Timotheé Chalamet grabbed headlines when he donned this harness look on the red carpet. While critics weren't feeling the design (some called it a bib), fashion devotees sang nothing but praises!

Light Up Keepall

Fancy a luggage you can control by a smartphone app? Abloh took travelling style up a notch by designing a Keepall which you can literally turn the lights on and off. When on, the glow-in-the-dark piece displays a luminescent version of the signature Monogram motif.

LV x Nike Air Force 1

Keeping true to his streetwear roots, Abloh  engaged two fashion forces in a collaboration of the century.

Carrot and Lemon Pouches

Abloh proved that fashion doesn't always have to be serious. Case in point? He came up with these pouches to serve as a playful reminder.
