The recent release of a new book, a collaboration between Louis Vuitton and the publishing house Assouline, pays tribute to the life and work of the late fashion designer Virgil Abloh. Abloh was a trailblazer in the fashion industry, becoming the first African-American artistic director for Louis Vuitton’s menswear in 2018.
Written by Anders Christian Madsen, the book features personal commentary from Abloh’s close friends and inner circle, including Nigo, Kendall Jenner, and Kid Cudi. The book boasts a total of 359 pages and over 320 images, making it a comprehensive, visual tribute to Abloh’s impact on fashion.
The book is especially significant as it’s the first commemorative book released since Abloh’s unexpected passing in November of 2021. The book’s availability in two special collectible covers only adds to its prestige. Fashion enthusiasts and fans of Abloh can now purchase this rare and special release for $120 each through assouline.com.
This book serves as more than just a collection of information and imagery. It’s also a heartfelt tribute to Abloh’s incredible contributions to the fashion industry, honoring his unique vision and creativity. Even after his passing, Virgil Abloh continues to be an influential figure in fashion today.
