The third time’s the charm for Off-White™ and Babylon LA, who are rejoining yet again for an expansive collaboration, their first in five years. This time, alongside the duo’s co-branded apparel, there’s a laundry list of influential artists and peers on board, providing special art and music to round out the far-reaching joint effort.

Inspired by Sarah Vaughn’s “Ill Wind,” the duo brought artist Othelo Gervacio on board to devise watercolor-tinged imagery of wind-swept palm trees and skeletons toting torn umbrellas, which grace various T-shirts, hoodies and an American-made work jacket alongside “OFF” branding infused with Babylon’s peace sign motif. Complementary pins and an umbrella reiterate the theme, with Sandy Kim’s campaign imagery taking on a more apocalyptic theme that nods to the first Off-White™ x Babylon partnership in 2016.

Accompanying the special garments is a limited edition, 144-page art book filled with contributions from friends of Off-White™ and Babylon. These include Peter Sutherland, Verdy, CHITO, Kosuke Kawamura, Cali Thornhill Dewitt, Matt McCormick and, somehow, even more. There’s also an exclusive seven-inch flexidisc record dropping courtesy of producer Knxwledge, which reinterprets Vaughn’s performance of “Ill Wind.”

All of the collaborative “Ill Wind” Off-White™ goods hit Babylon LA’s website and revamped Los Angeles flagship on April 22.

Off-White™, as usual, is as busy as ever with collaborative drops, teasing more Nike Dunks and Converse Chuck Taylors.
