It is no question that Virgil Abloh made ripples in the fashion industry. He has left a legacy that's quite difficult to follow, making it a challenging task for Louis Vuitton to find a fitting successor.

A detail that could be found in most of Abloh's creations was that he knew how to fuse together his influences from the past and progressive concepts. This groundbreaking concept is what the world lost upon Abloh's passing.
It has been days since the late artistic director's final collection, the Spring/Summer 2022, was unveiled during Paris Fashion Week. Apart from the tribute, the show is also a momentous feat for Paris as it was the first physical show for the Maison in Paris in a year and a half, according to Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke in an interview with WWD.
Burke also broke his silence for the first time after the artist's demise about finding a replacement for Abloh.
