Virgil Abloh is The King of Art Basel 2K16
A very focused (and fashionably late) Virgil Abloh was all business at last night’s W Magazine + Love Watts party, making a low-key beeline for the DJ setup after walking in and pausing for the occasional obligatory photo. The dude is in all kinds of places at once, particularly here at Art Basel; on top of debuting a furniture line earlier this week, he’s been spinning just about every party worth attending, including the Rum & Bass Block Party and Vibe Magazine’s epic rager. Needless to say, one of his many elements is behind the DJ booth, so here’s a peek at our boy doing his thing yesterday.
In true Virgil form, the booth was surrounded by cool people, including the likes of Petra Nemcova and Craig & Karl until dipping to go perform with Kid Cudi nearby.
In case you missed out on any of the above last night, you can still catch Virgil in action out here at Art Basel throughout the weekend—he’ll be spinning at the OAK x Up&Down Versace Mansion pool party tonight, and again on Saturday night at a party for Chicago-based artist Hebru Brantley. He obviously doesn’t sleep, and neither should you.
