Breaking: Virgil Abloh, Famed Designer, Dies of Cancer at 41

Published: Sunday 28th Nov 2021 by Sam

In breaking news, designer Vigil Abloh has sadly died aged just 41.

Full story below…

In an emotional announcement on Abloh’s social media, reps shared that the Off-White founder and Louis Vuitton Men’s Artistic Director had been privately battling a “rare, aggressive form of cancer, cardiac angiosarcom” for more than two years.

He sadly succumbed to the disease today (November 28).

The full post read:

“We are devastated to announce the passing of our beloved Virgil Abloh, a fiercely devoted father, husband, son, brother, and friend. He is survived by his loving wife Shannon Abloh, his children Lowe Abloh and Grey Abloh, his sister Edwina Abloh, his parents Nee and Eunice Abloh, and numerous dear friends and colleagues.

For over two years, Virgil valiantly battled a rare, aggressive form of cancer, cardiac angiosarcoma. He chose to endure his battle privately since his diagnosis in 2019, undergoing numerous challenging treatments, all while helming several significant institutions that span fashion, art, and culture.

Through it all, his work ethic, infinite curiosity, and optimism never wavered. Virgil was driven by his dedication to his craft and to his mission to open doors for others and create pathways for greater equality in art and design. He often said, “Everything I do is for the 17-year-old version of myself,” believing deeply in the power of art to inspire future generations.

We thank you all for your love and support, and we ask for privacy as we grieve and celebrate Virgil’s life.

Virgil Abloh
September 30, 1980 – November 28, 2021″

Our thoughts and prayers are with Abloh’s loved ones. May he rest in peace.
