Back in late November, well-respected fashion designer and icon, Virgil Abloh, passed away. At the time, he was battling a rare form of cancer, for two years. Abloh was battling this cancer quietly, all while doing what he loved. Prior to his passing, Abloh had been the Creative Director at Louis Vuitton, since 2018. He also had his own Off-White brand, and collaborated with Nike on numerous occasions.

In late January, 200 custom Nike Air Force 1 x Louis Vuitton sneakers that Abloh designed, went up for auction. This lasted from January 26-February 28.

All of the sneakers ended up being sold, for a whopping $25 million. One pair was even sold for $350,000. The average bid on each pair started at $2,000. The cheapest bid went on to total $75,000. The coveted $350k pair, was part of Louis Vuitton’s 2022 spring-summer men’s collection.

The auction also went to a very good cause. Proceeds are going to a scholarship which was created by Abloh, to assist Black designers.

Late November also saw Abloh’s final Louis Vuitton fashion show take place, in Miami. Stars such as Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Quavo, Pharrell, and more attended. Quavo, Offset, and Kid Cudi were also among the artists who walked the runway, in this fashion show.
