Looks like it’s finally happening, folks!
Remember a little over a year ago when Kanye was spotted at the Swedish IKEA HQ and everybody was speculating about upcoming Kanye West x IKEA designs?
I always knew Mr. West would never allow a furniture brand collaboration to happen without the obvious involvement of his best friend OFF-WHITE founder/designer + DONDA creative director and architect Virgil Abloh. So when Hypebeast just posted this little video stating a “potential” collaboration (the HB teaser is obviously a smart part of IKEA’s social media strategy) with an “individual, who many will speculate as Virgil Abloh of OFF-WHITE”, I was thinking: “you might’ve put some sly sound effects on that voice, but I heard Virgil Abloh speaking words directly to my face and this, my people, is Virgil Abloh.”
Listen to a snippet from Virgil below.
Exciting but if there’s a collection, will it match my WALTER VAN BEIRENDONCK for IKEAstuff?
I think it probably will.
