At this point, Virgil Abloh‘s ties to Kanye West have been explored ad nauseum, and rightfully so–the creative director is largely responsible for ideas that include everything from Yeezy’s live show to the Yeezus tour’s Wes Lang-designed ’80s metal tees and the West pop-up shop that landed in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. More impressive, however, is Abloh’s own transition into fashion design, evolving his former PYREX brand of graphic tees and hoodies into OFF-WHITE–a new label that launched its first comprehensive collection for the Spring/Summer 2014 season.

Now, fresh off the debut of his Spring/Summer 2015 looks, Abloh has sat down with CR Fashion Book to discuss everything from Parisian aesthetics and the significance of “OFF-WHITE” to his background in architecture–he has a master’s degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago–and what the future holds for his label.

Check out a brief excerpt from the piece below and head on over to CR Fashion Book to read the interview in its entirety.

What plans do you have for the brand going forward?

For future seasons, I aim to craft a lifestyle within the brand, and to release projects that represent the current generation and new consumer of fashion. Both mens and womenswear collections will continue to be steeped in current culture. I also plan to launch art exhibitions and furniture collections, to further reinforce the overall brand vision.
