Kanye West Is Being 'Eyed' To Replace The Late Virgil Abloh As Creative Director At Louis Vuitton

Kanye West, officially, Ye, is about to land a new job at Louis Vuitton. According to The Daily Mail, Kanye is being ‘eyed’ to replace the late Virgil Abloh as Creative Directory at Louis Vuitton. Kanye West a Creative Director at Louis Vuitton? From music, a terrible husband, and now to fashion?

West and Abloh ‘masterminded’ the 44-year-old rapper’s alleged creative takeover prior to the late designer’s death. Abloh, who served as the luxury brand’s artistic director for menswear, died on November 28 after battling a rare form of cancer, cardiac angiosarcoma, for two years. He was 41.

‘Kanye is devastated about Virgil’s death because they had been friends for years and worked together a lot,’ a source told the outlet on Wednesday. ‘They shared a similar vision and now Kanye feels he owes it to Virgil to continue his work at Louis Vuitton.’

The Daily Mail says that there hasn’t been any word from the camp from Kanye West when they reached out for a comment. I guess they are busy working on an official statement about Kanye’s rumored new job at Louis Vuitton.

Back in 2009, West and Abloh met while serving as interns for the Italian luxury brand Fendi in Rome, Italy. It was there that the pair’s 12 year friendship was born. Kanye made Virgil the creative director of his content company Donda in 2010. 

Well, if this rumor is anything to be taken seriously, then Kim Kardashian better gets prepared to collaborate with her future ex-husband, Kanye, to introduce something like Vuitton-SKIMS.
