While typically associated with hypebeasts and rappers, Off-White bridges the worlds of street wear and high fashion. Virgin Abloh, the mind behind Off-White, doubles as Kanye West’s creative director and second hand man.
We’re at an interesting time in fashion. Where subcultures are becoming the leading cultures. And rappers are have a major influence on fashion. All it takes is for A$AP Rocky or Kanye West to wear something, and it will immediately sell out in stores. Off-White definitely shares this strong, if not cultish, cultural association. see it worn by Justin Bieber, A$AP, Future, Jay Z, etc.
But through the fuccbois and the fashion victims, how do you navigate through this new wave of high-end streetwear? First off, please don’t deck yourself out in head-to-toe (guys, I’m looking at you). For girls, I think it’s a bit easier. When worn by a girl (which is rare), it says, “I’m one of the boys. I’m in the know. But I also don’t give a ****.” Not to mention, it’s also extremely comfy.
