Ib Kamara Is Off-White™’s New Art and Image Director

Ib Kamara has been appointed the new Art and Image Director at Off-White™. The Milan-based label has remained committed to carrying on Virgil Abloh‘s legacy in the nearly six months since his death.


“Ibrahim’s relationship with Virgil and Off-White™ was born and nurtured through DM messages on Instagram, and has blossomed both personally and professionally in the last three years, creating a strong bond based on mutual respect and shared values,” read Off-Instagram White’s announcement.

In Kamara’s new role, “he will further develop his influence and insight on the brand’s collections, image, and content.”


The Dazed editor-in-chief, who took over last year, is also a former fashion editor for i-D. He’s previously worked in the fashion and media industries, collaborating with brands such as Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Labrum London, and others.

On Kamara’s placement as Art and Image Director, Off-White™’s CEO Andrea Grilli, said, “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. 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. With his talent and vision we look forward to 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.”

Kamara penned his own tribute to Abloh while announcing the position on Instagram:

“Virgil will forever be with us. 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”
