Off-White has a new member of the team.

The brand announced Saturday that Ibrahim Kamara is joining the company as its new Art and Image Director, a position which will allow him to oversee the artistic direction of the brand.

“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,” CEO Andrea Grilli shared in a statement.

“Inspired by Virgil’s vision and approach to his art we have nourished a collective of creative minds that represent the best in their category and have a strong and personal connection with Virgil. 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 honor.”

Grilli continued, sharing that Kamara will help the brand in “taking on the next chapter of Off-White™ together, always remembering the groundbreaking creativity and values that Virgil had at heart and that are the core of our brand.”

As the brand shared on Instagram, Kamara shared a “strong bond” with Abloh, based off of “mutual respect and shared values.” Abloh died in November of 2021 following a private battle with cancer.

“Virgil will forever be with us,” Kamara wrote of the news of his new position. “With me. He changed the world and left an indelible mark on anyone who encountered him and beyond. Generous with his time, mind and creativity – he saw everyone and created with all humans in mind. I am honored to further link my ties to Off-White™️ as their Art & Image Director and be a part of the team that will tell the rest of the story Virgil started writing for us all.”
