One Year Ago: RIP Virgil Abloh
“If you think Off-White’s too expensive, that’s great. You’re supposed to make your own T-shirt brand. It’s meant so that you start the competing brand that’s better than Off-White”
It’s hard to name a figure who has inspired more young people to be creative, and try what they doubt, than Virgil. An incredible, beautiful man, who lived an incredible life, cut tragically short.
Trying to put in words what he meant to so many is somewhat futile; a point he made with his signature quotation marks. But, last year in LA Magazine, I gave it a shot. You can read my obituary below.
Rest in Peace. “FOREVER VIRGIL”
