Off-White C/O Virgil Abloh
Virgil Abloh, a recent nominee for the LVMH prize, has since launching fashion label Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh, become a household name in the world of street wear. Off-White originally grew out of Pyrex Vision, an art project also founded by Abloh. Having worked as Kanye West’s creative director for approx. the last decade, Virgil Abloh is by no means however new to the scene. He has throughout his career so far worked with some well established players in fashion, like Silvia Venturini Fendi at Fendi and collaborated with the likes of Nick Knight, Riccardo Tisci, Kim Jones, Takashi Murakami and Balmain's Olivier Rousteing to name a few. Now however, his main focus is on Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh. With Off-White, Abloh is with his collections mastering that difficult combination of street wear and high fashion. His silhouettes and trends are clearly inspired by the streets but is constructed with fine detailing in luxurious materials, which is what sets this apart from the rest. The women’s spring/summer 2015 collection titled “Nebraska” offers you just that.
