“I was so hyped. I was like, ‘Oh, he went there. A guy that looks like me did that. Fire’, he said.
Tyler also shared that when he decided to do Golf Le Fleur in 2019, musician Dev Hynes (known as Blood Orange), Solange Knowles, and Virgil Abloh pushed him to do it. Virgil not only encouraged him, but put Tyler in contact with “people in Italy.”
Tyler ended the interview by saying he wished Virgil was here to see the launch of his brand and that he was “an angel.”
