Virgil Abloh Releases New “Figures of Speech” Pieces
Virgil Abloh released a new range of “Figures of Speech” pieces inspired by his Chicago retrospective. One of the two garments has a black and white renaissance painting across the body of the shirt, with the AMO badge surrounded by ‘Office for Metropolitan Architecture’ in a circle. Underneath the badge, Abloh added his “Figures of Speech” stamp. The back features a glossary of the exhibit in Chicago, overlapped by the same AMO logo and the number 23 which pays homage to his first clothing label, Pyrex Vision. The second item is also a white t-shirt, this time decorated with overlapping street lines laying over the exhibition title and index.
The Virgil Abloh “Figures of Speech” shirts can be bought on the MCA Chicago website.
