Way back in October of last year, we got word of an upcoming collaboration between Off-White™, Burton and Vogue. Now the trio has finally revealed the fruits of its endeavor: a chic range of snowboarding performance wear for women. Offering up ten pieces in all, the co-branded capsule “marries Off-White™’s signature designs and Vogue’s Selby Drummond’s minimalist, sleek style with Burton’s renowned technical fabrications.”
Said Virgil Abloh of the collection:
Our process first started with a trip to the Burton Headquarters in Burlington, Vermont to meet and tour the facilities with Greg Dacyshyn. The root of the collection was using Selby as the muse. Her personality and character is the intersection that inspired me. She is both street and chic. Therein lies the Off-White™ spirit. The collection signifies both high fashion in its tailoring and fit, as well as having the element of no-fuss and utilitarianism.
Naturally, Vogue‘s Drummond took cues from her own snowboarding experience, saying, “Like a lot of girls I know, I grew up shopping in the men’s section for my gear because women’s styles at the time often felt like an afterthought. Burton was the only partner Virgil and I even considered when we dreamt up this collection, because they are not only pioneers of the sport, but also champions of female athletes on the slopes.”
Abloh, Burton, and Vogue‘s collab is available in limited quantities now via burton.com and the snowboarding icon’s New York and Tokyo flagships, as well as at select Off-White™ locations.
