The soil on Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy grave (it’s more like a shrine, really) is not yet dry, but rumors and speculation surrounding who will replace him are already circling. Today’s rumor? OFF-WHITE designer and Kanye West creative director Virgil Abloh is said to have been in talks with the house about filling the brand’s Tisci-shaped hole after the Italian designer confirmed his exit last week.
The report comes courtesy of WWD, to which Abloh responded by saying: “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.” Now, we don’t know about you, but that’s definitely not a “No” to us.
Would Givenchy be wise to trade Tisci’s Bambis for Abloh’s zebra stripes? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned for more information as we have it.
