Following Riccardo Tisci’s departure as creative director at Givenchy, rumors began to swirl heavily as to who would be his successor. A name that kept surfacing was OFF-WHITE’s Virgil Abloh. Well, the speculation has officially been put to bed. A spokesperson for the fashion house told WWD: “Mr. Abloh was not approached by the house and is not to join the organization.” They also added that “Givenchy’s new creative organization will be communicated shortly.” Abloh still has great things planned for his OFF-WHITE label saying in a recent statement. “My trajectory is to update and provide something new in the fashion industry by way of creating a project and using it as a case study on how to update a luxury house.”
