On the rear, the Abloh-designed T-shirt features a quote and a glossary relating to the exhibition, alongside the designer’s moniker and a PYREX VISION-inspired “23” graphic.

The capsule also features a “Figures of Speech” line T-shirt, featuring red lines on the front alongside the exhibition title and an index and glossary on the rear. The webshop also has a postcard set and poster set alongside the now sold-out Insert Complicated Title Here book and “Figures of Speech” retrospective photo album.
