Virgil Abloh’s brand is once again getting involved with pop culture with this new collaboration Off White x Basquiat.
The New York artist is an important link with New York’s downtown culture, and has inspired Virgil Abloh. Through this capsule, the Louis Vuitton DA wanted to pay tribute to this spark of post-modernism. A post that is amusing to recall, because the same exhibition on Basquiat is being held at the Louis Vuitton Foundation, a way of closing the loop in a way. The capsule features visuals specific to the artist’s distinctive scribbling and raw aesthetic, mixed with randomly placed and meaningful inscriptions. It is composed of two t-shirts, two hoodies, a denim shirt, one jean, one chino and iPhone cases.
This Off White x Basquiat capsule can be found on the Italian brand’s website or in the Louis Vuitton Foundation’s souvenir shop.
