Who He Is: Designer, Pyrex Vision
Despite the criticism hurled towards his most recent collection, one thing can't be denied—it sold out instantly. Thanks to his close ties to rappers like Kanye West and A$AP Rocky, Virgil's gear has reached astronomical levels of demand. He's also one of Matthew Williams' #been #trill cohorts, a troop that's worked for streetwear heavyweights like Stüssy and high-fashion venues like Milk Studios. While it's too early to tell his lasting influence, there's no denying that Virgil's a figure to watch as the line between streetwear and high fashion continues to thin out.
