Virgil Abloh, known for his work for Hood by Air, Pyrex Vision and Been Trill, will soon launch Off-White, a streetwear-meets-fashion line. Also known as “Kanye West’s Style Adviser”, Abloh builds on and expands upon Pyrex Vision’s iconic graphics. Off-White will be a full cut-and-sew line, made in Italy, he explains in an exclusive interview with Style.com. The first collection, for Spring, is largely based on Abloh’s graphics: a motif of parallel lines, crossing over a “WHITE 13″ logo. (On the name, he says only: “It’s just a bucket for me to put my thoughts into.” The graphic element was inspired by the geometric lines of Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House near Chicago, an inspiration point for the entire collection. The inspirations he rhapsodizes over are not necessarily predictable ones. “I have this deep infatuation with Montauk and Martha Stewart and Nantucket,” he says. “My parents are from Ghana, and I grew up in Chicago, but for some reason, this lifestyle, shabby chic—it’s grown on me since I got older.” We’re awaiting the official release on January 31, 2014.
