First announced last month, Virgil Abloh & SSENSE join forces for the “CUTTING ROOM FLOOR” exhibit. SSENSE Montreal hosts the special event, where attendees may peruse a 1:1 recreation of Abloh’s personal studio in Chicago.
The remade studio features a host of knickknacks, DJ equipment, shoeboxes and scattered papers embellished with Abloh’s sketches, allowing guests a unique look at Abloh’s creative process. Elsewhere, the space is decorated with NASA chairs, Off-White™ snowboards, a Supreme x Public Enemy rug and Abloh’s HYPEBEAST Magazine cover, to name a few standouts. Attendees will be able to purchase the various facsimiles that fill out the faux studio, with each purchase encased in a vacuum-sealed package to denote its limited edition status. Accompanying the replica items are customized Off-White™ x Nike Air Prestos and various collaborative goods, including Nike Air Force 1s and Off-White™ x RIMOWA suitcases, both of which are signed by Abloh.
The exhibit opens at SSENSE Montreal today.
Today’s the day—@virgilabloh will be at @ssensemontreal from 2-8 PM. Follow @ssensemontreal for livestream coverage of his installation #CUTTINGROOMFLOOR. 〰️ WEATHER ALERT ? Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for Montreal, where temperatures may reach 45°C today. We will do our best to keep the line moving and circulate visitors in and out of the space as efficiently as possible, but please come prepared by bringing lots of water, dressing appropriately, and wearing sunscreen.
