Virgil Abloh is back working at Louis Vuitton after taking some time off to focus on his health.

The fashion designer, who serves as creative director of menswear at the French luxury brand and is also the founder of streetwear label Off-White, announced in early September that he would be embarking on a temporary hiatus from his roles as he was having a difficult time recovering from a recent overseas trip.

However, on Monday, Abloh took to Instagram to post a mirror selfie of himself posing in an elevator at the Louis Vuitton headquarters in Paris. He is pictured wearing a red and yellow jacket as well as a baseball cap but did not write anything in the caption.

While he was spending time at home, the 39-year-old missed Off-White's Paris Fashion Week show and a scheduled public appearance at Vogue's Forces of Fashion summit. It remains unclear if he will be at the opening of his Figures of Speech exhibition at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday.

Back in September, Abloh indicated to reporters at Vogue.com that he was suffering from exhaustion following months of hectic fashion shows and travel.

"I was just tired, so I went to the doctor. Ultimately, everything is fine, but the doctor told me, 'This pace that you've sort of pushed your body - to fly all these miles, do all these different projects - is not good for your health,'" the designer explained. "Essentially I'm working from home for the next three months, and in large part all my marketing events I'm cancelling."

The break also meant Abloh could spend time with his two young children, whom he shares with his wife Shannon Sundberg.
