Art and luxury lifestyle publication Whitewall recently unveield the cover star to their summer 2019 issue to be Off-White & Louis Vuitton frontman, Virgil Abloh.

Shot by photographer Jamie Morgan at his Louis Vuitton studio in Paris, the American designer speaks to the magazine on a range of topics from his Chicago hometown to his rise in the world of fashion.

“We first met Abloh in 2016 in Chicago where we interviewed him at Soho House for our fall 2016 fashion issue. He was a designer on the rise with his undoubtedly hip OFF-WHITE label. When we spoke with him, his vision and creative energy was palpable. Since then, it’s come as no surprise that he’s become the world phenomenon he is today, now the men’s artistic director for Louis Vuitton. An icon of the Instagram generation, he has an uncanny ability to tap into the cultural zeitgeist and deliver what the youth crave, always up for a collaboration with a fellow creative.”
