Designer Virgil Abloh grew up in the suburbs as a skater who listened to Nirvana, Beastie Boys, and Wu-Tang Clan. These are the influences that shaped his design aesthetic.
This aesthetic can be seen in Abloh’s designs for major brands such as Nike, Levi’s, Champion, Jimmy Choo, Warby Parker, Timberland, and IKEA. As the Creative Director of Kanye West and Off White, Abloh works to merge street style with luxury.
