Taken from the iconic imagination of the late creative director and designer Virgil Abloh, Off-White c/o Virgil has released a capsule collection created exclusively for Australia. As the world still mourns the passing of this exceptional talent, the new collection continues to share his limitless creativity. The brand established in 2013 has made its claim amongst high fashion for paving the way in contemporary streetwear. Off-White is best known for its striking minimal graphics and patterns – often found in its selection of garments that create an enduring identity by design.
Responsible for the current culture vision, the Australia only Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh collection is a mix of curated daily silhouettes paired with high-end design constructive processes. The nine-piece limited-edition capsule collection comes in two different packages. The first features the Off-White Optical Pattern paired with a dazy arrangement of checkerboards strung across each piece. The second package channels a distinct watercolour-inspired spray. The collection plays with a dynamic pairing of white and cobalt blue, making for an effortless combination.
An illusion on the garments, the Optical Pattern package offers articles for both the ladies and guys. From t-shirts to hoodies, the pieces are made from 100% cotton crafted with the brand’s go-to oversized fit. Pairing the recognizable “Off” text with a detailed hand, the recurring print gives the line a quirky finish.
On the other hand, the Watercolour package is created for the guys, keeping in mind skate and oversized proportions. These unique spray treated items also feature one of a kind embroidery that make for refined detailing. Cobalt blue works as a layer to the design, while the overall white creates a spacious depth to the shape. Keeping in mind versatile items, Off-White also releases a classic flannel carry over shirt with a twist. The article is treated with a unique fabric dyeing process and has a heavier dose of indigo. The flannel is a perfect layering piece for unpredictable weather; the pullover also features an Off-White print on the back.
We also can’t forget accessories. A baseball cap and flap bag complete the energetic line polished with the spray treatment. The flap bag, in particular, pays ode to heritage innovation, opting for that classic striped arrangement and a graphic Off-White strap. Always bringing youth culture and streetwear to the forefront of fashion, The Off-White c/o Australia Capsule collection is available at Off-White Melbourne, Off-White Sydney and online at Marais.
