What we're talking about here is larger than sneakers, it's larger than design culture, 36-year-old Abloh, who, as a teen, sketched shoe ideas and mailed them to Nike, said in a press release. Abloh wears a hoodie, refers to a PowerPoint, and does not at any point ever acknowledge the rumors.
At Kenzo, the crystal creations had Off White Sweaters an otherworldly-quality, discovered from a galaxy far, far, away. Gowns and dresses may be every girl's go-to prom look, but if yesterday's iHeart Radio Award show was any indication, pants of all forms jumpsuits, pantsuits, trousers - you name it.
Abloh wears a hoodie, refers to a PowerPoint, and does not at any point ever acknowledge the rumors. Who wore off-white best: a pudgy-cute baby Off White T Shirt in a dress or the always-stunning Kate Middleton? Okay, it's not a fair comparison, but with Prince George on the scene, attention is certainly divided.
The Levi's Made Crafted x Off-White co Vigil Abloh collection blends past and present, with a strong emphasis on the popular vintage 501s Off White Hoodie look but reimagined with modern lines, central split seams, and contrasting color panels and patches. The retro Dior saddle bag nabbed the top spot on the list of the ten most covetable items for women, alongside Off-White's logo belt, Gucci Flashtrek sneakers and surprisingly, Birkenstock's Madrid sandal.
Balenciaga opted for oversized 80s-inspired buttons, but the news here was the matchy-match with the striped bow blouse. Quirky yet cool, this twinning look is the latest catnip for street style photogs. Sure, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren dabble in denim-on-denim, but the rest of the fashion world is doubling Off White Store down on it, too. Interestingly enough, all of these brands, regardless of where the designers are from, are based in Europe - either London, Paris or Milan, a far cry from last year's crop of finalists, who designed in cities like New York, Mumbai and Moscow.
