The Sun recently reported that Louis Vuitton is already preparing for West to take over as their next creative director.
A source told the outlet: “Kanye is devastated about Virgil’s death because they had been friends for years and worked together a lot. They shared a similar vision and now Kanye feels he owes it to Virgil to continue his work at Louis Vuitton.”
Abloh passed away on November 28 at the age of 41 following a lengthy battle with an extremely rare form of cancer known as cardiac angiosarcoma.
The renowned designer’s funeral was held on December 6 in Chicago. Drake, Rihanna, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Kid Cudi, Tyler, the Creator, A$AP Rocky, Frank Ocean, Vic Mensa, Lauryn Hill, Don C, Jerry Lorenzo, and more were in attendance.
