OFF-WHITE DEBUTS COLLECTION WITH THEOPHILUS LONDON

by Stephen Garner

Off-White has teamed up with Trinidadian-American rapper Theophilus London on a new collection that celebrates London’s latest studio album, “Bebey.”

Consisting of five key pieces, Off-White designer Virgil Abloh and London paired up for this project on account of their deep friendship and overlapping creative histories. London’s genre-defying music shares similarities with Abloh’s aesthetic approach: both draw from diverse and cross-category disciplines when formulating their respective work. And, in 2014, London’s album “Vibes” was art directed by Abloh and the late Karl Lagerfeld.

With this collaboration, Abloh came on to help design a capsule that showcases London’s personal style. The five pieces succinctly sum up the musician’s signature look, be it from the airport to jogging to being on-stage.

Each item features the album artwork. A black short-sleeve tee features transfer prints of an illustrated human bust blended with Off-White iconography. Likewise on a black fleece hoodie and a cotton bucket hat. There is also a black tracksuit with red and sunflower accents, including “Bebey” spelled out in script along the jacket’s back. Finally, a pair of selvedge denim jeans also depicts London’s motifs. Every piece in the collection holds a customized label with the artist’s signature.

Off-White c/o Theophilus London will be available online at farfetch.com and select Off-White’s monobrand stores worldwide.
