Virgil Abloh has died after a private battle with cancer.

On Sunday (Nov. 28), the iconic designer for Louis Vuitton and Off-White passed away at age 41, his family announced on Instagram.

“We are devastated to announce the passing of our beloved Virgil Abloh, a fiercely devoted father, husband, son, brother, and friend,” read the statement. “He is survived by his loving wife Shannon Abloh, his children Lowe Abloh and Grey Abloh, his sister Edwina Abloh, his parents Nee and Eunice Abloh, and numerous dear friends and colleagues.”

Abloh, who was Louis Vuitton’s menswear artistic director since 2018, had battled a “rare, aggressive form of cancer” called cardiac angiosarcoma for the past two years.

“He chose to endure his battle privately since his diagnosis in 2019, undergoing numerous challenging treatments, all while helming several significant institutions that span fashion, art, and culture.”

The statement continued, “Through it all, his work ethic, infinite curiosity, and optimism never wavered. Virgil was driven by his dedication to his craft and to his mission to open doors for others and create pathways for greater equality in art and design. He often said, ‘Everything I do is for the 17-year-old version of myself,’ believing deeply in the power of art to inspire future generations.”

Louis Vuitton mourned the devastating loss along with Virgil’s peers including Pharrell, who paid tribute to the iconic designer, calling him a “kind, generous, thoughtful creative genius.”
