Genuinely a WTF moment when that came up on the ‘gram. No doubt he changed the game.

Pretty sad tbh. And never loved anything he did but it’s clearly nicer than anything posted on this board for about 10 years.

Everyone who was into Gear had an opinion on his product. But we could never deny his work ethic and now the legacy he will leave behind.

He won't be forgotten nor should he, and he definitely gave us alot to talk about. R.I.P

Rumors are already circulating, from his vaccination status, to being linked to Ghislaine Maxwell's trial(don't ask me how, I was just reading Instagram comments, so you know there's probably some BS involved there). I know that's neither here nor there. But I do know his passing is very much untimely, especially having a rare heart condition.

never liked anything he did, but you have to respect what he tried to do with colloborations - helping other people get a foot in the door, especially with young black people.
Got lot of time for that, especially at LVMH

Hate or love his work - you can’t deny the level of influence Virgil has had on men’s fashion / streetwear over the past decade or so. I have huge respect for the guy

RIP Virgil
