Our brands

Power suits made in leather, giant puffer coats, a cropped blazer with short shorts; these are just a few takeouts from Virgil Abloh’s latest showcase for Off-White, the label he launched in 2013. Street is a recurring reference in Abloh’s Off-White, fused with bourgeois silhouettes, punk-inspired cuts, and hints of classic Parisian chic. It’s this ability of his, to blend disparate design forms, that have made him one of the most celebrated designers today. 

Over the past few years, his Midas touch has catapulted some of the most underrated products to cult status. Be it his fresh take on Ikea’s Frakta bag, with ‘Sculpture’ written on its side with tape placed at select seams; or his re-imagining of 10 most iconic Nike silhouettes; or his oversized logo emblazoned sweats, every Off-White piece is a manifestation of Abloh’s creative bravado. 

If you are a newbie to the brand that everyone from Bella Hadid to Hailey Baldwin to Kendall Jenner is wearing, here’s a quick (shopping) guide to 10 best pieces from Off-White.
