Although Virgil Abloh has dubbed his forthcoming 2016 spring/summer offering for OFF-WHITE the “Blue Collar” collection he said from a Parisian studio, “I call it Blue Collar, but I actually want to make white collar clothes.” The recent LVMH Prize nominee has expressed his commitment to shifting OFF-WHITE from a streetwear brand to a full-fledge menswear label, and this particular collection proves his vision. Amalgamating the low and high, the blue and white collar, this range starts with a juxtaposition of blue oxford panels from mailman uniforms with matte black tailored coats and shirts.
