The American designer from Ghana died on November 28 at the age of 41 of a dazzling cancer. Multidisciplinary artist, at the same time architect, DJ and designer, former collaborator of Kanye West, he managed to impose his vision of fashion with his label Off-White in 2013 and his recognizable logo. PARIS MODE INSIDER is back on its journey take a look.

 

OFF-WHITE, ITS HISTORY

The brand was founded in 2012, and its success is not recent, but it is now reaching the heights of the biggest names in streetwear and luxury .
The Off-White brand makes a lot of streetwear that you could call urban haute couture, but it's best known for its $3,000 sneakers, super-expensive phone cases, loud collaborations (custom by Off-white ) that help fuel the billion-dollar sneaker resale industry, its seemingly non-functional industrial-patterned belts, and its experimental furniture.
Off-white is a streetwear brand designing streetwear that is extremely popular, sought after and exudes an image of street luxury today.
"Set the gray area between black and white as the Off-White color."

Young people in New York and Milan from fairly affluent backgrounds, pop stars and rappers from all media and fashion magazines, and much of the high fashion elite, including Marc Jacobs , Abloh's fan from the start. But also, Julia Roberts and many others.
Off-White's use of quotation marks is a major factor in the relevance of this streetwear brand. Regular words surrounded by quotation marks bring emphasis and value to the context of the word, eliciting new dimensions from the chosen words.
By presenting the words as quotations, Virgil Abloh extracts them from their context and questions their seriousness. When he puts "Sculpture" on the side of a handbag, he provokes the viewer. What's the difference between a handbag and a work of art, is there really one?
