ART DIRECTOR, DJ, DESIGNER + KING OF COLLABS IN 2017.

ART DIRECTOR, DJ, DESIGNER.
AND THE KING OF COLLABS.

A VISUAL ROUND-UP UP OF VIRGIL'S COLLABORATIONS IN 2017.

The end goal is to modernise fashion and steer a [fashion] house, because I believe in the modernisation of these storied brands. I want to prove this new iteration of fashion and use Off-White as a case study for these new ideas that relate to current consumers, because at the end of the day it’s an industry I believe in.
— VIRGIL ABLOH

Chicago-native Virgil Abloh, gained notoriety as the art director for the 2011 Jay-Z / Kanye West album Watch the Throne, and later founded the short-lived streetwear label Pyrex Vision. In 2014, he launched the Milan-based fashion label OFF-WHITE - known for it's use of "QUOTE" text in CAPS, and one of the 'it' brands at the moment. It's hard to keep up with the Virgil and OFF-WHITE collabs this year - it seems like every time we scroll through our IG + Twitter feeds, there is another drop or rumoured collab in the works...

From NIKE to IKEA, here's a look at Virgil's 2017 collabs:

 

Other collabs that are rumoured or in the works include: CHAMPION, BURTON, MONCLER and VOGUE, and an upcoming lecture on October 26th at the Harvard University School of Design.
