Established in 2012, the late Virgil Abloh credits the start of his fashion interest to his mother who was a seamstress. In 2009, Abloh was an intern at Fendi in Rome alongside Ye, otherwise known as Kanye West. Off-White is defined as a multi-platform creative endeavor. Although the label focuses on fashion, it blends concepts of streetwear, luxury, music, and art. One of Off-White’s signature mantras is ‘the grey area between black and white.’ By combining concepts of modern-day streetwear with contemporary impressionable graphics, Off-White’s signature deconstructive attitude captures the streetwear scene at its core with notable motifs like the iconic diagonal spray, zebra stripes, yellow warning belts, and arrow motifs.
Off-White introduces its new Fall/Winter 2022 collection. This collection expresses a dialogue between the past and feature in order to articulate and progress the present. The designs feature a selection of tees, hoodies, jackets, headwear, sneakers, and more. One stand-out graphic from this new collection is the Off-White Degrade Thund Slim S/S Tee. Cut from cotton, this tee takes on a bold approach with its screen-printed lightning-inspired branding at the front. At the rear are additional screen-printed arrow motif graphics. Made for a slim fit, the crew neckline wraps up the design.
As for footwear, the Off-White High Top Vulcanized Leather makes a statement in any footwear collection. The design spotlights a leather upper and additional leather overlays. The front lace-up closure provides a secure fit. A signature hang tag can be seen at the ankle, while the rear pull-tab adds a functional touch. A perforated toe box is placed while the midsole spotlights diagonal striping for added dimension. The rubber outsole underneath wraps up the remainder of the look. Perfect for the cooler months, the Off-White OW Patch Varsity is a must-have jacket for any streetwear apparel rotation. This outerwear item features a premium construction of wool for optimal comfort and warmth. The press-stud fastening adds a secure fit along with the detailed stand-up collar. The ribbed detailing at the trims makes a statement with the in-seam side pockets. The motif patchwork at the front finishes the look.
Another apparel item includes the Off-White Diag Arrow Caravaggio Ann Slim Hoodie. Cut from cotton, the silhouette spotlights a drawstring hood for added functionality. Ribbed trims are seen at the cuffs and hem. The screen-printed Caravaggio graphics are seen at the front and intertwined with taping motifs. Screen-printed branding on the face makes an impression along with the diagonal striping at the sleeves. The kangaroo pocket finishes the look.
