Virgil Abloh Thinks Streetwear Can Be a Trap

Virgil Abloh used the term zigzag often during his appearance at WWD’s Apparel and Retail CEO Summit. It describes how he’s climbed the ladder in fashion to launch his own line, Off-White, and land the artistic director position at Louis Vuitton men’s. Streetwear was how he got his foot in the door — the zig — but once he got inside he’s pushed himself past the confines of “streetwear designer” — the zag.
So far, the element of surprise, along with balancing his many other creative jobs, is working and he’s not looking to disrupt the industry as much as he wants to evolve it. In a conversation with WWD’s editor in chief Miles Socha, Abloh spoke about the sustainability of streetwear, how he avoids clichés, and what younger customers are looking for that most luxury brands don’t offer.
WWD: You trained as an architect, so you are an outsider of sorts to fashion design. Has this helped you to break rules and what principles do you bring from architecture?
Virgil Abloh: I first studied civil engineering at the University of Wisconsin at Madison and then architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology. But I would say my sort of education started well

A Deadly Trap? After Journalist Reportedly Killed in Consulate, Shocked Friends Vow to Fight for Justice

As increasingly horrific reports continue to emerge about the fate of dissident Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi, shocked friends of the missing Washington Post columnist are vowing to push for justice on his behalf.

“We’re fighting like hell,” Karen Attiah, Khashoggi’s editor at the Post, tells PEOPLE. “Like absolute hell.”

The 60-year old Khashoggi, a Saudi native who had been living in self-imposed exile in Virginia, vanished on Oct. 2 after walking into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

He reportedly went there to obtain divorce papers so that he could marry his Turkish fiancée, Hatice Cengiz. But Turkish authorities believe that instead of being handed the promised papers, Khashoggi was lured there to be tortured, killed and even dismembered inside the consulate by a hit squad flown in from Riyadh, the Saudi capital.

A well-known journalist in his home country, Khashoggi — a one-time insider with the ruling House of Saud — had grown increasingly critical of the policies imposed by the country’s 33-year-old de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, also known as MBS.

Khashoggi fell afoul of Saudi authorities, American intelligence sources tell PEOPLE. He fled to Virginia in 2017.

“He knew he was in danger,” says David Ignatius, Khashoggi’s friend and Post colleague. “He felt he should not go back to Saudi Arabia.”

• For more on the life and sudden disappearance of writer Jamal Khashoggi, subscribe now to PEOPLE or pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday.

In the United States, Khashoggi soon took up a column for the Post, where he continued to criticize bin Salman.

He was aware that his work was being translated and read overseas, colleagues say, and that his views provoked ire in some royal quarters. “He was often scared,” Ignatius says. “He was worried.”

Attiah says Khashoggi was “excited” and “proud” to have the platform of the Post.

“Still,” she tells PEOPLE, “it was painful for him to have to write about the repression in his country. He said Saudi Arabia was always harsh, but never like this.”

An impending marriage was enough to send the usually wary Khashoggi — whom friends describe as “lonely” — inside Saudi territory abroad, to the consulate in Istanbul.

What happened after he entered the building more than two weeks ago is still the subject of official dispute, though Turkish authorities, quoted anonymously in various news articles, have described a grisly end orchestrated by the Saudi government, apparently in retribution for Khashoggi’s open criticism.

Saudi authorities, meanwhile, previously denied any wrongdoing and said that Khashoggi had left the consulate that day unharmed.

It remains unclear if the crown prince had any direct knowledge of what happened to him, though some sources have reportedly said it would be unlikely he would have been unaware given his position.

Under international scrutiny and amid further damning news reports, sources told CNN and other outlets this week that Saudi Arabia was possibly preparing to concede that he had been killed in an interrogation or planned abduction gone wrong.

The case has cast a harsh light on the U.S.’s years-long, if controversial, support of Saudi Arabia. Various politicians, including those in the Trump administration, have sounded their concern. (Khashoggi was a legal U.S. resident.)

While officials scramble to address what has become an international crisis, the missing man’s friends and colleagues agonize over his fate — and vow to find answers.

“I hope that this story turns out to have a better outcome, but with this much time and no answers, it seems increasingly unlikely that he is alive,” Attiah says. “I hope I’m wrong.”

Says Ignatius: “I’m hoping and praying, but more and more it’s looking like he was killed and in a horrible way.”

Khashoggi’s Post colleagues remember a tall man who was amiable and engaging, with a “sweet moon face” and a “gentle” spirit.

On his values, though, he could be stubborn.

“He had an inability compromise,” Ignatius says. “He believed in telling the truth. Some people don’t know how to compromise. He was one of them.”

In the wake of his vanishing and reported death, Attiah says, she is re-reading Khashoggi’s columns that she herself edited.

“He put himself in the feelings of other prisoners sitting in cells,” she says. “Now that we’re all imagining what was going through Jamal’s mind, I wonder: Did he overestimate how safe he was?”

Attiah keeps going back to the day Khashoggi walked into the consulate and her first inkling that something wasn’t right.

“That morning I was brushing my teeth and I thought, ‘I haven’t talked to Jamal in a while,’ ” she recalls.

She senses now that she will never talk to Khashoggi again.

“The truth is Jamal is not here,” Attiah tells PEOPLE. “The truth is he went into the embassy and never came out.”

It’s a devastating reality — and a motivating one. The Post has published excerpts from some of Khashoggi’s columns on a tribute page to the missing writer.

“If anything, this has energized me to continue this mission,” Attiah says. “Whoever did this, they can’t kill a mission.”

Nasty Thought Buzzing Around? Trap It, Map It and Zap It Now

Tie your shoes. Drive a car. File taxes. Cook a chicken. Floss. Some skills are so fundamental to being an adult that most everyone picks them up one way or another, whether from family, at school, or even from television shows.

But there’s one skill that can lower your stress, up your resilience, and help you move toward the most important goals in your life — and hardly anyone teaches or learns it. The skill? Managing negative thoughts.

How have we not made this skill a priority? Every single person has thoughts all day, every day, like an endless social media feed in our minds, and many of those thoughts aren’t friendly. Some make you feel sad, some angry. You have guilty, anxious and embarrassed thoughts. You have thoughts of shame, perhaps the most painful of them. These thought-fueled emotions raise your stress levels, keeping you stuck in a difficult cycle of thought-emotion-stress.

If you can recognize and handle these types of thoughts and feelings, you have a much better chance of being happier and healthier. If you don’t have this skill, well, it’s never too late to learn.
Trap It, Map It, Zap It: the answer to negative thoughts

You can’t just snap your fingers and cancel out a thought, but you can become aware of sudden strong emotions and map them back to the underlying thoughts in order to examine whether they are valid or not. Then you’re more likely to zap the stress that resulted and get on with your day. At meQuilibrium, we call this process Trap It, Map It, Zap It. Here’s how it works.

1. Trap the Emotion.

At first, you may not be able to identify the thoughts that trigger your emotion. However, you can probably recognize its symptoms. Is your heart beating faster? Are you weepy for no clear reason? Do you have a hollow feeling in the pit your stomach? Is your mouth dry? When moments like this come along, flag them. Tell yourself, “I’m feeling angry (or anxious or frustrated) right now.” Saying it out loud makes you better able to distance yourself from it.

(Read more on physical symptoms of common negative emotions.)

2. Map the Thought

Once you realize how you’re feeling, tell yourself, “I’m feeling angry (or anxious or frustrated, etc.) right now, so I must be having a thought that’s prompting this emotion.” Again, saying it out loud helps. Where are these feelings coming from? What thoughts flash through your mind? When’s the last time you had this feeling? Once you’ve identified the thought or story behind the feeling, write it down.

(Read more on common negative emotions and the thoughts behind them.)

3. Zap the Thought

Now that you’ve found the thought, test if it’s true. Ask yourself, “Is this thought real, or am I inventing something that’s not really there?” For example, say you’re hit with sadness, and you map the emotion to the thought that your friend didn’t call because she doesn’t like spending time with you. Is that true? If it is, then it may be time to have a talk with your friend. But if not (and this is the case nine times out of 10), you’ll see that it’s a false thought. Once you zap the thought, the emotion will dissipate and go away.

You will have thoughts in your head every waking hour. Learning how to manage them doesn’t just make you feel better in the moment; you gain more control of how you react to the events of your life. It’s like learning how to drive the car of the your mind — now you can go wherever you want to go.
