Every fashion-oriented person has heard of the Italian brand Off White. Stylized as Off-White or Off-White c/o VIRGIL ABLOH, this luxury fashion brand is based in Milan, Italy. Their products include clothing, accessories, shoes, and more. Off White offers products both for men and women. They became a staple of the streetwear industry and are loved by people all over the world. The company was founded in 2012 and has since then grown immensely.
Its founder, Virgil Abloh, is an American designer who has worked in fashion since 2009 when he started an internship at Fendi. His successful ventures include collaborations with such brands as IKEA, Nike, Levi, Converse, and many many others. He is not only a fashion designer but also an artist who has created many artworks that were used on CD covers of such musicians as Jay-Z, Kanye West, or Pop Smoke.
What is the Off White brand like
Off White sells designs that are a fusion of luxury fashion with casual streetwear. They amassed a following especially among young people who value the brand for its unique approach to high fashion. It is said that the name of the brand itself refers to that combination of two styles from different ends of the spectrum.
The brand is also famous for its quality. Abloh, even though he was born and raised in the States, insisted on basing his company in Milan to assure that only the highest quality fabrics are used to make his products. The Off White items have the durability of the world’s most expensive brands without looking pretentious.
They often use the concept of irony to create items that seem to make fun of fashion itself. For example, their signature item, the yellow and black belt resembling an industrial hazard tape, became the brand’s icon due to its massive length of 20o centimeters. The belt is embellished with the brand’s name and the words ‘weight securing system’. The belt, even though it is far from what one would imagine a belt to look like, has become one of the most coveted accessories from the brand.
Some of their lesser-known items include stylish blazers and jackets that don’t really scream streetwear or accessories, such as bags. They even sell fanny packs. The Off White Fanny Pack is a simple black belt bag made from nylon material with the brand logo printed in white at the front. The belt is identical to the famous 200 centimeters industrial belt. This Off White Fanny Pack is a great way to interlace practicality with making a statement by wearing one of the most famous brands in the world.
Off White is not just any other streetwear brand. Its founder, Abloh, has managed to unleash his creativity in a new and unique way. The brand offers many kinds of clothing and accessories in reasonable, for a luxury brand, prices.
