The brand announced on Saturday that Ibrahim Kamara will join the company as its new Art and Image Director, a position that will allow him to oversee the brand’s artistic direction.
“Following Virgil’s tragic death, we have worked tirelessly to keep his legacy alive and to keep the brand relevant as a reference point and platform in constant evolution,” CEO Andrea Grilli said in a statement. “Inspired by Virgil’s vision and approach to his art, we have produced a collective of creative minds who represent the best in their category and have a strong and personal connection to Virgil.
