The Brooklyn Museum in New York opened Friday the traveling exhibition Virgil Abloh: “Figure of Speech”, an exhibition that pulls back the curtain on what was the creative process of the Illinois-born designer and creative artist in which one can see prototypes, drawings and works “for which he found inspiration in centuries-old paintings as well as commonplace symbols”, explains a note from the Brooklyn Museum.
A retrospective celebrating the enormous impact the former Louis Vuitton menswear artistic director had and continues to have on the entire creative world.
To best celebrate Abloh’s legacy, the Brooklyn Museum has released official merchandise for Virgil Abloh: “Figure of Speech”, a collection consisting of Champion hoodies and tees, trucker hats, tote bags, most pate of which Virgil himself conceived in 2019. There is no shortage of accessories, design objects, an exhibition poster, a set of stickers and the book-catalogue “Figure of Speech” published by DelMonico Books, presented on the occasion of the exhibition’s debut at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
