Rumors of Virgil Abloh taking the helm at Givenchy after Riccardo Tisci's departure have started circulating the Internet late last week. In a response to these rumors Abloh kept things rather vague and therefore speculations continued. Now Givenchy took things into its own hands and told WWD that "Mr. Abloh was not approached by the house and is not to join the organization." For those of you that were excited about this possible move, not all hope is lost. OFF-WHITE is only really starting to take off and Abloh continues to make a name for himself in the market, therefore a bigger fashion house job is certainly still in the cards for him, especially considering that nowadays a more classic fashion design background is not anymore a necessity for the creative director positions at fashion brands, as we have seen recently.

The big questions remains, who will have the daunting task of replacing Riccardo Tisci? Apparently the new hire will be announced shortly. Stay tuned.
