Cool Dad Job: Fashion God
Latest Cool Dad Achievement: Taking time off from fashion domination.
Abloh, the son of Ghanaian parents, grew up in Chicago and first met Kanye West while interning at Fendi in Rome in 2009. The two have been inseparable ever since. At first, that helped Abloh bring his Off-White brand into the mainstream, but as Abloh’s star rose (skyrocketed, really), the relationship became a bit less patron-and-artist and a bit more peers. After becoming a household name, Abloh took over at Louis Vuitton and promptly gave the brand a star-studded reboot. That he did this while also working with everyone from Jenny Holzer, IKEA, and Takashi Murakami made it all the more impressive. But Abloh isn’t just a workhorse. He’s a man who makes time for his family. Abloh recently took time off to be with his wife, Sharon, his 7-year-old daughter, Lowe, and 3-year-old son, Grey.
