Virgil Abloh is gearing up to clear out his personal archive, dubbed “Canary Yellow,” in time for Black Friday. Some of Abloh’s most coveted creations will be available in a public sale for the first time, but note that the range exclusively includes items created by Abloh alone — nothing from Off-White™ or Louis Vuitton.

Key pieces include items from the popular “Figures of Speech” exhibition series, ranging from apparel and accessories to $500 USD art prints signed by Abloh, which showcase designs like Off-White™’s logo, a blurry Felix the Cat and a stylized Grim Reaper. Elsewhere, collectors may covet a $4,500 USD “Clear Canvas Case,” conceived by Abloh as “a modern interpretation of artwork display.” Heightening the value, each case is part of an edition of 100 that includes a certificate of authenticity. On the flip side, the merch offering includes more affordable fare previously seen at Abloh’s exhibitions, like $48 USD hats, $65 USD T-shirts and $350 USD reprinted Pyrex Vision hoodies.

Elsewhere, Abloh’s collection of “GRADIENT FURNITURE” ($4,300 USD to $5,800 USD) will be offered to customers in limited numbers, with all the painted metal chairs standing nearly 3 feet tall. The “Figures of Speech” book, created for the original MCA exhibition, will be offered in normal and special editions for up to $150 USD, while a lavish Teller | Abloh board book is yours for $525 USD, a showcase curated by both artists that highlights photographs taken by Teller in his London studio in December 2018.

Abloh’s Canary Yellow site will host the sale on November 29.

Meanwhile, Abloh recently announced an upcoming exhibition, “Efflorescence,” for 2020.
