As its contract with Italian casualwear brand Harmont & Blaine came to a close at the end of the season, AC Milan is now looking for a new style partner. According to an exclusive report from MilanPress.it, Virgil Abloh‘s Off-White™ will step in to dress the elite Serie A champions for the 2022/23 season.
While Off-White™ has previously worked with Nike on football gear, which included jerseys, boots, and accessories, the deal with AC Milan, if confirmed, will be the brand’s first official partnership with a sports team. Off-White™ has strong ties to the city of Milan, with its headquarters and one of its largest boutiques based in the Italian fashion capital. Puma is expected to continue to design the AC Milan kits while the team’s new style partner will handle the off-field wardrobe.
The announcement comes following partnerships between PSG and Jordan, Inter Milan and Moncler, and fellow Italian football club A.S. Roma and Fendi. Look for the AC Milan squad, including Zlatan Ibrahimović and Olivier Giroud, to potentially serve up curated Off-White™ fits next year.
