Offset & LAUNDERED WORK CORPS. FW20 Collection Offers a New Take on Luxury
Storming down the runway at Paris’ American Cathedral.
Offset and LAUNDERED WORK CORPS. recently took to Paris Fashion Week to present their collaborative collection at the city’s American Cathedral, the same place Vetements presented its FW16 collection at back in 2016. Aptly titled “The Road to the New Luxury,” the Migos member presented an assortment of garments that walked the line between luxury fashion and streetwear.
Bringing his eclectic taste to the collection’s forefront, various classics like jean jackets, bombers, leather biker jackets, T-shirts, and pants were complemented by in-your-face graphics, washed treatments, and distressed finishes. These looks remained anchored by hip-hop centric footwear pieces ranging from Maison Margiela GAT Replicas to the Air Jordan 4 “Doernbecher,” Travis Scott’s Air Jordan 1 Lows, and many more. Creative director Chaz A. Jordan and the brand’s Omar Johnson collaborated with Offset to produce the piece’s in couture workshops across France and Italy, presenting the range to a plethora of celebrity guest’s including the rapper’s wife Cardi B, fellow Migos members Quavo and Takeoff, Tyga, Mustard, Jerry Lorenzo, and even Paul Pogba.
Speaking to HYPEBEAST France, Offset noted a bit about the process behind the collection. “The choice of fabrics, the design, the details, the weight of the T-shirt, the weight of the sweater. We did it all together,” he shared. “We didn’t want to make cheap things that you couldn’t wear for a long time. A lot of brands make clothes that after three washes no longer look like anything.”
