The celebrated fashion director and stylist, who is currently editor-in-chief of Dazed, will join a group of creatives overseeing the artistic direction of the brand, according to a statement released by the label on Saturday.
Off-White has been without a creative director since the death of Virgil Abloh in November, following the designer’s private battle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare form of cancer.
“In the wake of Virgil’s tragic passing we have been working tirelessly to keep his legacy alive and the brand relevant as a point of reference and platform in constant evolution,” said Andrea Grilli, Off-White’s chief executive.
“Having Ibrahim on board, who has been part of the Off-White family for years styling our shows, to oversee art and creative of the brand in this next chapter is a great honour.”
Executives at New Guards Group and LVMH reveal exclusively to BoF the ‘endless’ pipeline Abloh left behind and their plans to harness his legacy to build a multi-billion-dollar brand.
