IKEA embraces Virgil…
It’s safe to say that art director and designer, Virgil Alboh is soon to becoming a household name, with the help from IKEA. The Swedish company has been teasing with off and on again collaborations from various designers but one of their biggest successes has to be with the Hip-Hop style influencer Virgil Abloh. Known for his association with Kanye’s DONDA fashion house, now the hottest designer in the game with his OFF – White collection joined IKEA awhile back to bring a household collaboration to the international masses.
Off White has collaborated on clothing and sporting apparel with popular brands such as KITH,Nike and Champion but never on furniture amongst other needs of the home. System Magazine celebrated the event with a peek into the IKEA location in Sweden with Virgil and the inhouse team while they set up designer chairs, bags, pillows, rugs, shelving, among other accessories. Off White×IKEA prototype is unveiled.
