Kanye West has been lined up to take over the prestigious role as the creative director for Louis Vuitton following the sad death of fashion legend, Virgil Abloh.
The rapper has in recent years branched out from best-selling musician to launching his clothing line, Yeezy, and even dabbling in politics.
Now it looks like the “Donda” rapper could be taking his love of fashion design even further as reports say he has been tipped for a prestigious role in a world-renowned brand, Louis Vuitton.
According to The Sun, Louis Vuitton plans to replace the late icon, Abloh with the musician who was a close friend of the late designer.
It has been said that Kanye and Abloh discussed the rapper taking over the role shortly before Abloh’s death last month.
Ye and Abloh had been firm friends for over a decade, first meeting in 2009, and the late designer held the role of creative director at Kanye’s firm, Donda.
The Off-White founder and Louis Vuitton designer died on November 28, after a private two-year battle with cancer.
