Off-White, TheDoubleF Launch Capsule Collection

Off-White has teamed with Italian online retailer TheDoubleF to launch a capsule collection, which will be on sale on the e-commerce site from Wednesday.
Called TheDouble-OFF, the capsule consists of seven unisex pieces including a jacket, a hoodie, a sweatshirt, a T-shirt, a pair of jeans, as well as a hat and a belt, featuring details in the e-tailer’s signature teal green color.
“I started from the ‘TheDoubleF’ visual DNA to create a collection with a special crafted identity that relates to the Off-White core image,” said Off-White creative director and chief executive officer Virgil Abloh.
“We believe in synergies, a critical element to differentiate ourselves in a highly competitive market. So, who better than Virgil Abloh could inaugurate our series of exclusive collaborations?” TheDoubleF ceo Francesco Galli said, referring to the series of exclusive collaborations with high-end designers and brands to be developed in coming months.  “Off-White and TheDoubleF are two emerging brands with a disruptive DNA — the result is an explosive capsule collection.”
To promote the TheDouble-OFF capsule, TheDoubleF has tapped Milan-based photographer Piotr Niepsuj, who explored the theme of duality by working with two models and mirrors.
The capsule retails from 190 euros for the T-shirt to 1,400 euros for the jacket.
Launched last year, TheDoubleF is

EXCLUSIVE: Off-White Releases Capsule Collection With Sunglass Hut

Off-White’s Virgil Abloh is jumping back into the sunglasses market, and this time in a big way: Abloh is collaborating with Sunglass Hut to launch a capsule collection.
The designer already has numerous collaborations under his belt, including Off-White c/o Jimmy Choo for spring; Nike c/o Virgil Abloh the Ten, and Off-White c/o Warby Parker in July 2017, which was his first foray into the eyewear market. But the partnership with Sunglass Hut is a first for his brand in terms of size and scope.
“Sunglass Hut and Luxottica offer Off-White exposure to a wide audience that might not know about the brand,” Abloh said when asked about the reason to partner with the eyewear company. Sunglass Hut offers Abloh a reach on a global scale, including Asia, Mexico, Australia, the U.K. and the U.S.
“I’ve always thought of sunglasses as an important accessory in a fashion context. It’s a small object that can give you the nuances of a brand’s opinion on design,” Abloh said. “For me, I was looking to incorporate classic shapes from the past with a youthful modern elegance. All lenses are flat, which gives each style the same edge.”
The unisex collection, made up of three styles, are each

Alexandre Arnault Teases Off-White Suitcases by Rimowa

CONNECTING THE DOTS: Could Virgil Abloh have yet another collaboration in the works?
Alexandre Arnault, co-chief executive officer of German luggage-maker Rimowa, has posted an image on his Instagram account of two black suitcases, one printed with the word “Personal” and the other with “Belongings.”
“Hey @virgilabloh — coming for you straight out of the factory! 🛄#offwhite ‘RIMOWA,’” read the caption.

Officials at Rimowa’s parent company, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, declined to comment further. A spokesman for Off-White could not immediately be reached.
Off-White has been ramping up the pace on collaborations of late, with projects involving Ikea, Nike and Jimmy Choo. Arnault attended the brand’s fall show in Paris in March, and Abloh was a guest at the opening of Rimowa’s flagship store in Paris a few days later.

Off-White, Monse to Design Costumes for New York City Ballet

New York City Ballet will soon mark the sixth installment of its Fall Gala, with costumes by an unconventional group of designers.
Monse’s Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim, Off-White’s Virgil Abloh, Tsumori Chisato and Jonathan Saunders have been paired with choreographers, working in tandem to create original works set to premiere at the Sept. 28 event.
Monse will work with New York City Ballet principal dancer Lauren Lovette to create costumes for her second choreographic work for the company. Chisato has been paired with NYCB resident choreographer Justin Peck. Abloh will design costumes for a new piece by choreographer Gianna Reisen. Saunders — designing ballet costumes independently of DVF, where he is chief creative officer — has been paired with NYCB soloist Troy Schumacher, who is creating his third choreographic work for the company.
Sarah Jessica Parker has reprised her role as the gala’s event chair. The fashion gala was conceived by Parker in 2012. Each year, the actress, designer and producer wrangles fashion designers for the costuming task. Past participants have included Thom Browne, Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, Carolina Herrera, Marques’Almeida, Valentino, Olivier Theyskens and Dries Van Noten, among others.
Music for the fashion gala’s 2017 iteration includes the work of composers

Jennifer Fisher, Off-White Collaborate on Earring Design

Jennifer Fisher and Off-White’s Virgil Abloh are getting down to business.
The jewelry designer has crafted earring designs for Abloh’s rapidly growing brand — tied to his fall 2017 collection theme of global warming.
Fisher wanted to evoke an element of environmental harm — and chose to create wire, hoop-type earrings shaped like electric stove coils. They are to be priced at $ 275 for a single earring and $ 535 for a pair. They are available in 14-karat, yellow-gold-plated brass or silver-plated brass with a rhodium finish.
“I wanted to express something wasteful, like the radiant heat electrical stove,” said Fisher of the design, which is to be sold on her web site.
“The undercurrents behind women’s Off-White are undertones of issues facing the world. Climate change, women’s rights are at the forefront. The earrings created in collaboration with Jennifer Fisher were based on radiating energy. The design stems from that mechanical part readily found in real life,” Abloh said in a statement.
The two have struck a friendship in recent years. “We were at a dinner party at [Fivestory owner] Claire Distenfeld’s house together and just fostered a mutual respect and friendship. I love what he does, that he studied architecture and has that background
