Entitled “You Cut Me Off”, OFF-WHITE combine’s unique street sensibility with striking graphics and references to artists and designers Abloh admires. Delivering a range of distressed denim, camouflage print jackets, varsity-style letterman jackets and printed tees, sweats, caps and footwear, Virgil also returns to the masterpieces of Caravaggio for AW16.

“Streetwear isn’t just a T-shirt – it’s a way of thinking, a lifestyle.”

– Virgil Abloh.

Playing it safe on the colour palette, most of the garments possess the signature brushed diagonal stripes or are decorated in grayscale with red “Cut Off” embroidery. A new obsession with Lucio Fontana adds spotted paintwork while the Opere tee revisits Caravaggio’s ‘Seven Works of Mercy’ oil painting..

Seeing how far he can push menswear, Virgil continues to blur the lines between runway and what we know as ‘streetwear’. The hard-to-define middle ground has seen OFF-WHITE take the leap from printed cotton creations to exhibiting a willingness to not only develop as a designer, but to also eschew categorisation, creating captivating narratives to surround each collection.

The OFF-WHITE AW16 Collection is available now online at EndClothing.com.
