On Doctors’ Orders, Virgil Abloh Is Taking Some Time Out Of Fashion

by MR Magazine Staff

A man in demand, Virgil Abloh is the men’s artistic director for Louis Vuitton and the founder of Off-White. Alongside this, the 38-year-old is also on the board of the CFDA; a DJ; a visual engineer; and a collaborator with brands such as Ikea and Nike. With all this going on, the Chicago-based creative has announced he will be taking a three-month break from traveling and public life, and instead, working from home. In an interview with Vogue, he explained: “I’m excited to drop the kids off at school and be able to be here for those moments… In high school I always took pride in the award where you didn’t have any sick days (but now) being busy isn’t working. But I’m using this as I do everything else, as a way to propel me forward.” Read more at Dazed.
