Off-White Spring/Summer 2020 Was a Tribute to Street Art
Virgil Abloh’s latest for Off-White Spring/Summer 2020 was designed in collaboration with New York graffiti artist Futura. Back in the ’80s, Futura showed alongside other seminal city artists like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat with his distinct abstract street art style which has been incorporated into the collection. Airbrush-like techniques printed on white suits and other tailored pieces gave them a very ’80s vibe — remember that super colorful Information Society video? Additionally, a mesh-fence theme printed throughout the collection established an urban vibe while tie-dyed cargo pants were a new spin on utility wear. The collection also debuted new Futura x Nike styles as part of the ongoing collaboration between the brands.
