The collection is inspired by a "business casual" aesthetic.
This morning, Virgil Abloh's Off-White label presented its Fall/Winter 2018 collection during Paris Men's Fashion Week. The clothing mixed traditional tailoring and more informal sartorial choices for an interesting "Business Casual" selection.
The look that opened the show set the aesthetic tone for the show quite perfectly, showcasing a loosely fitted double-breasted pinstripe suit with a simple T-shirt worn underneath. The other formal looks included in the proceedings were equally deconstructed, such as the cut-and-sewn asymmetrical shirting and wool overcoats.
The more casual pieces were represented in the puffa jackets, twisted polos/T-shirts, as well as a full-on GORE-TEX tracksuit, which helped ground the collection in a more street aesthetic.
T-shirts were emblazoned with references to the Beastie Boys, pieces with quotation marked captions, i.e "SCARF," as well as a continuation of the brand's collaboration with Timberland.
Footwear options were also presented in new and interesting silhouettes, such as the industrial-belt appendages on loafers, Oxfords that were consciously spray-painted, as well as signed Virgil Abloh x Nike Air Jordan 1s.
The collection was presented in front of a who's-who of the creative world, as Miguel, Alexander Wang, Takashi Murakami and Luca Sabbat all sat front row.

Off-White has also recently launched a line of T-shirts which are reduced in price in order to reach a wider clientele. These pieces will retail for $95 USD, as opposed to the label's standard $175 price point.
