Is Virgil Abloh the Most Name-Dropped Man in Fashion? | GQ

Virgil AblohVirgil Abloh, the man behind mega-hyped streetwear-fashion hybrid label Off-White, has been at least tangentially in the spotlight for most of his adult life—that tends to happen when your best bud is Kanye West. But while Yeezus has his own plans for fashion domination, Virgil’s ascension to the top of Mount Fashion has made him a design superstar in his own right. In fact, whether it’s because he’s a jet-setting DJ, a collaborator with rising music stars like Travis Scott and Sky Ferreira, or at the helm of his own label, Virgil’s name is what people seem to drop when the conversation turns to clothes. Here, take a look behind the scenes at our shoot and hear what Virgil thinks about his current success, his favorite brands (“Supreme is my Louis Vuitton!”), and his plans for the future.
