Off-White™ and KM20 are no strangers when it comes to collaborations. The brands unveiled their first “Temporary” capsule collection back in 2017 and followed with “Temporary Vol. 2” last year. To celebrate KM20’s 10th anniversary, Off-White™ and KM20 have teamed up once again for a third collaborative capsule featuring a range of unisex pieces.
The main inspiration behind the collection comes from Off-White™’s permanent installation titled ‘Modern Architecture.’ Shaped like an ancient temple, the structure features a metal construction covered entirely with blue netting. The semi-translucent temple was then reworked by Russian-based graffiti team A.D.E.D., who covered it with graffiti tags. Like last year’s pieces, the capsule’s graphics are reproductions of the graffiti done on the installation.
Informed by a Yves Klein-inspired blue colorway, the third capsule includes a collaborative T-shirt, bucket hat, zip tag and stackable rings. Off-White™’s name in English and Russian (Офф-Уайт) brand the apparel and accessories, along with designs celebrating the 10th anniversary of KM20. Bucket hats sport an all-over colorful pattern created by the art group’s paint splotches. Graphics of the temple, photographed by Yana Davydova, cover the front of T-shirts, while the backs boast graffiti prints reworked by each A.D.E.D. member and Virgil Abloh himself.
Take a look at the pieces from KM20’s collaboration with Off-White™ in the gallery above. Expect the exclusive collection to drop November 2 on KM20’s website and at its in-store Moscow location.
