Off-White, Virgil Abloh And Stüssy Are Probably About To Drop A Collaboration
Part of his Off-White label, the project saw Abloh design and release a T-shirt with the project's name on it, with all profits going to Chicago Cred (Create Real Economic Destiny). Cred has worked with Abloh since 2017 and it works to reduce local gun violence by creating opportunities in the fashion industry for underserved communities.
Now, after that initial release, it appears that Abloh is about to unveil the next part of the project, on which it has worked with New York-based brand Stüssy.
Teased by Abloh on his Instagram Stories, the collaboration takes the form of another T-shirt, which features Stüssy’s logo above the same “I Support Young Black Businesses” print. Layered above this is a photo of the Great Sphinx of Giza, and the retailer Tribe's logo, which makes us think that will be an exclusive stockist.
This would be the first time that Abloh, who heads up the menswear side of Louis Vuitton as well as controlling all creative output at Off-White, has collaborated with Stüssy. As for Stüssy, it's been a year of collaborations, so an Off-White hook-up is unsurprising.
Already in 2020 the American brand has released collections with Birkenstock, Dior, Nike, Matthew Williams and Our Legacy. What's more, the skate label dropped its own charity tee back in June, which saw 100 per cent of profits go to the Black Lives Matter and Equal Justice Initiative.
As ever, we'll keep you posted on further updates.
