Following a first look at a potential third Nike Dunk Low colorway, Off-White™ has also shared that it has collaborated with Japanese brand UNDERCOVER on a capsule collection. The collection, cheekily named “UNDEROFFWHITECOVERS” carries the same off-beat energy over into the video campaign the two brands shared via their social media channels, which can be watched below.
According to UNDERCOVER’s website, the full collection consists of three T-shirts, two reversible hoodies, a pair of sweat shorts, a pair of faded black denim with a matching waist pack and a separate waist pack of the same denim material. Besides the denim and waist pack, each style in the collection is available in both white and black. Graphics include a mix of punk and horror motifs, such as skeletons, snakes and distorted hands. Off-White™ and UNDERCOVER branding makes an appearance on each piece, most notably in the form of a collaboration logo that sees UNDERCOVER written upside-down beneath Off-White™ in script.
The Off-White™ c/o UNDERCOVER “UNDEROFFWHITECOVERS” capsule collection will be available in selected Off-White™ retail stores, online, and in MADSTORE UNDERCOVER Laforet Harajuku, UNDERCOVER Kanazawa, Sendai, Nagoya, Kyoto and Hankyu Mens Osaka beginning September 14. A second online release will happen on UNDERCOVER’s website the following day on September 15. UNDERCOVER notes that a full version of the collaboration’s video campaign will be shown at the brand’s Aoyama store from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. local time on September 14.
This news follows Off-White™ founder and designer Virgil Abloh’s announcement that he will be taking three months of medical leave without travel.
