If I showed you the picture above and told you that the dude on the far right was going to eventually be named the head of menswear design at Louis Vuitton, would you have believed me?
I wouldn’t have. But it came true. Louis Vuitton, the most well-known designer brand around, just named Virgil Abloh as its new menswear designer. The announcement brought mixed reviews from fans and critics, but that getting people talking was probably part of the plan.
Both Louis Vuitton and Virgil confirmed the news on Instagram.
