Off-White™'s SS19 Show Was Filled With Nods to Pop Culture

Our exclusive backstage look reveals bold graffiti prints and new Nike designs.

Virgil Abloh‘s highly-anticipated Off-White™ Spring/Summer 2019 collection at Paris Fashion Week Men’s is here. The presentation which paid homage to the late graffiti artist, Dondi White, featured vintage silhouettes and “DONDI” emblazoned on garments. In fact, a few pieces arrived with distressed and painted accents.

Pop culture-references also were heavily a part of the range. The Simpsons‘ beloved character, Bart, was pictured on two T-shirts, while the character’s fictional home was on another. A nod to the ’80s and ’90s was evident in the oversized workwear-inspired denim, sequin separates and tees with bold graffiti prints.

The SS19 collection was rounded out by the chain-heavy accessories, and footwear. A few sneakers included collaborations with Nike. An Air Max 97 design appeared in light grey with a multi-colored Swoosh and another similar model was seen in black. Also seen in the array of trainers was a custom Virgil Abloh x Nike Blazer with white branding and a white Swoosh. Additionally, the runway presentation highlighted a possible new collab with Dr. Martens – the branded loafers had Off-White™’s signature zip tie.

Check out our backstage look at the Off-White™’s SS19 collection in the gallery above. Stay tuned for more from Virgil Abloh as his first Louis Vuitton Men’s presentation is set to release tomorrow.
