Launched in Milan by Chicago native Virgil Abloh, Off-White — officially stylized as OFF-WHITE C/O VIRGIL ABLOH — hit shelves in 2013. A trained engineer, architect, DJ, and artist, Abloh’s silhouettes were hailed as multi-disciplinary masterpieces from the jump. 続きを読む
Before long, Abloh leaned into the role of, as Vogue put it, “collaborator nonpareil.” He launched products with an array of partners, from shoe companies to museums to furniture brands. With Jimmy Choo, Off-White developed a Princess Diana-inspired shoe collection, and with IKEA, a furniture line for millennials. Abloh even worked with German luggage company Rimowa on a range of transparent suitcases. But perhaps the most notable Off-White collab has been with Nike, producing such gems as the Nike Air Force 1 Low Off-White MCA. Other popular Off-White items include the Off-White Industrial Belt (SS19) and the Virgil Abloh x MCA Figures of Speech Tee.
