A celebration is in order for Virgil Abloh. It’s only Monday and the week has started out amazingly for Kanye West’s DJ. For starters Virgil Abloh welcomed a baby into the world yesterday.
Virgil is relatively quiet on social media. The only thing you’re going to find is him retweeting pictures of his fashion line, Off-White, but we’ll touch on that later. This meant the news had to come from somewhere else, and it came from none other than the man Virgil DJ’s for —Kanye West.
‘Ye tweeted out “CONGRATULATIONS TO MY BROTHER VIRGIL ABLOH ON THE NEW BORN” to his over 18 million followers. Yet, Virgil merely retweeted Kanye’s post serving as a confirmation. While it doesn’t compare to an actual baby, Virgil also saw the conception of his brain-child that is Off-White come to life.
Virgil Abloh will be participating in the upcoming festivities for Paris Fashion Week 2016 where he will debut the mens campaign entitled “You Cut Me Off” and the women’s campaign by the name “Off Day” for Off-White. Recently he’s been receiving endorsements from celebrities such as burgeoning star Lil Uzi Vert, who was photoed wearing an Off-White graphic tee in a picture that Virgil retweeted on his timeline. The progression from Virgil making tee shirts to starring in fashion week is tremendous. We bet Virgil cannot wait to start singing kids songs to his baby girl and watching his kid grow up. So exciting!
It also quite possible that Virgil Abloh will be playing new music from Kanye West’s upcoming album Waves. Dropping unreleased music is not something out of the norm for Virgil. While doing a DJ gig in London, Abloh incorporated the unreleased song Fade, which was the song that played during the Yeezy Szn 2 fashion show, into his set sending the crowd into a frenzy.
Things are looking up for all those involved in the G.O.O.D music family. Congratulations on the new baby Virgil.
