Virgil Abloh lost his private battle against cancer on November 28. He was the Off-White CEO and artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear. The Hip Hop and fashion communities continue to mourn the untimely passing of legendary fashion designer.
Virgil had many good friends in the music industry, and one of them was Kid Cudi. The Moon Man recently shared a tweet on his Twitter account. He shared the last text message he had with the late visionary.
Cudi captioned his tweet as “Our last text was Saturday morning. Im glad I got to tell u how I felt about u. I’m happy u didn’t leave here not knowing. I love you Virg FOREVER.” In the screenshot Cudi shared he was telling Virgil about Art Basel in Miami, Florida being “a feature film n-gga,” which led the designer to reply with a “MAJORRRRRR” and “action movie.”
Cudi then texted Virgil a few days later, asking what ideas he had in mind about outfits for the show. He followed that with a text regarding how thankful he is for their friendship.
“Hope u had a great Thanksgiving w/ the fam!” Cudi wrote. “So thankful to have in my life. Love u brother.” “Mad love for you my G,” Virgil responded. “Did you get a fitting time yet?”
“Not yet!! But they sent the fit. Shits fire,” Cudi said, ending the conversation.
Cudi was talking about the outfit that he could have worn to the designer’s memorial event on Tuesday, November 30 at Art Basel in Miami, Florida. The Louis Vuitton “Virgil Was Here” Spring/Summer 2022 collection. Guests from the music and fashion industry were present there to remember the Icon.
Cudi wore a lime green fleece jacket with matching flowing pants and green hair. Kid Cudi must have felt nostalgic as he also walked at Virgil’s first Louis Vuitton show in 2018.
