Virgil Abloh’s OFF-WHITE brand and sneaker and sports apparel powerhouse, Nike, have had quite a lucrative relationship starting way back in 2017. Since then, we’ve seen some iconic silhouettes such as OFF-white touches on the Air Force 1, Zoom Fly, Jordan 5, Jordan 4 and more.
Now, for 2021, the partnership keeps the ball rolling with 50 iterations of the OFF-WHITE x Nike Dunk Low.
No release date has been set for the Off-White™ x Nike Dunk Low “The 50” collection as of the release of this post. Nike states that more information will be released soon. Stay tuned for more info.
With speculation that an all-new “The 20” dropping, Virgil Abloh increases the intrigue even more by teasing a pixelated image of seven silhouettes with the phrase “ACTUALLY PENDING.” Although there has been no word on the release of these sneakers officially, one could bet the farm that this news is set in stone.
Silhouettes featured in the drop include Abloh’s rendition of the Air Jordan 1 in a “Canary Yellow” colorway, two Futura Off-White™ x Nike Dunk Lows, a Nike Air Force 1 model as well as the Nike Court Flare 2.
Check out the details at Public – – – Domain, and stay tuned in as more concrete evidence surfaces.
Even though we’ve already seen the release of the OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 5, there is still a chance for you to own a pair and support a good cause at the same time. Virgil Abloh will now be joining up with Aya Brown to host a raffle where proceeds will go toward Girls Only, Therapy for Black Girls, Dream House, and For The Gworls. The aforementioned organizations are set up to support and empower Black women and Black women in the transgender community.
The raffle is up and running right now and will remain live until November 22 at midnight (EST). The winners will be selected on November 24 and will be able to get their very own pair which will be autographed by Virgil Abloh. Head here for more information regarding the OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 5 raffle and to purchase tickets.
Releasing today on Virgil Abloh’s website is the Off-White creator’s “Free Game” mentorship series. This series is an extension of Abloh’s Post-Modern Scholarship initiative, resulting in the designer creating a scholarship for Black creatives.
The “Free Game” series is free of charge and features a dedicated webpage of several YouTube links Abloh has chosen relating to the process of starting a brand. The result hopes to encourage a greater initiative to “supply Black students an education in fashion.”
Abloh has really taken the ball in being more vocal when it comes to social justice issues and has even pushed for increasing voter turnout. Check out some of the videos and head back to FRESHFLYFUTURE for more.
The United States’ presidential election is right around the corner and Virgil Abloh is doing his part in encouraging voter turnout with his “Swing State” T-shirts. The tees come courtesy of his canary—yellow label and will consist of 13 states in total. The tees feature the “I Voted” graphic on the front which looks like the stickers the polls give out once you vote. The back of the shirts denote the respective state with a blue shade on the map of the US.
The 13 “swing states” represented by each shirt are Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin. These are the key states that Democratic nominee Joe Biden need to win in order to beat the current President.
Made-in-Mexico tee and constructed of 50% upcycled cotton and 50% recycled polyester, these tees are constructed from five plastic bottles and .26 pounds of fabric scraps which saves 63 gallons of water. Also of note, 100% of the proceeds from each tee will be donated to Virgil Abloh’s Post-Modern Scholarship Fund, aiding Black students in their creative careers.
Known for taking regular items and giving them a luxury aesthetic (a Paper Clip Pendant Necklace), Off-White™ has now designed a key-shaped earring which makes you wonder if Janet Jackson was the inspiration as she made the look famous.
This ordinary household item-turned luxury fashion piece makes a statement, featuring a single hoop design made of silver. The textured key pendant is looped by the thick hoop portion which is engraved with Off-White™ branding.
Priced at $245 USD, the Off-White™ Key Earring can now be purchased at Harvey Nichols.
One of this year’s most sought after releases is Virgil Abloh’s Off-White Jordan 4 “Sail.” This soon-to-be instant classic holds all the characteristics of a Virgil Abloh sneaker, featuring Helvetica text for the “AIR” lettering, labeled “SHOELACES” and zip-ties made famous on Abloh’s “The Ten” series for Nike. This silhouette is dipped in an overall cream colorway with translucent lace eyelets, tongue, upper netting and heel-tab.
To support the Black Lives Matter movement, Virgil donated an autographed pair to be auctioned off for charity. In doing so, the pair fetched over $100,000 towards key organizations supporting the cause.
After being teased at Paris Fashion Week, the sneaker community has been clambering to get a definite release date on the Off-White x Air Jordan 4 “Sail.”
These Air Jordan 4’s c/o Virgil Abloh sees the classic silhouette dipped in an all-over cream palette. The white netting and signature Off-White text complement the overall aesthetic of the sneaker well. Look for these to drop July 25 for $200 USD at select Nike retailers as well as Nike.com.
Future and OFF-WHITE collide to introduce the “Flows” pack which transforms the Nike Air Force 1 and SB Dunk Low silhouettes into a crafted Bespoke masterpiece.
The spray blanket which was released in Italy as a result of Futura and OFF-WHITE’s collaboration serves as the inspiration for the “Flows” pack. Each pair of shoes will be unique as the pattern will differ from model to model thanks to BespokeIND’s aesthetic of exclusivity.
