Virgil Abloh‘s been even more in the spotlight recently thanks to the release of his debut Louis Vuitton collection in NYC. Between his role at the Parisian luxury house as well as his own Off-White™ label and ongoing collaborations with Nike, you’d think he’d be creatively maxed-out but he’s just revealed yet another endeavour. Taking to Instagram to share the news, Abloh confirmed he will be launching an eponymous jewelry line.

Debuting at his “Floral Shop” pop up at the Hôtel Costes in Paris between January 17-29, the jewelry line will comprise of essentials like necklaces, earrings and a small accessory with one thing in common – they’re all inspired by a simple paper clip.

Speaking to WWD about the pop-up, Abloh stated “I curated my favorite flowers, simple bouquets that can be bought, but I’m also previewing high jewelry that’s of my own name. It’s not associated to Off-White™ per se.” He added that he’s been developing this line for three years and it’s the first time the items will be on view, before sharing  “The idea is like high jewelry for all. It’s a crash — it’s a paper clip, but it’s also pavé diamonds made in a very specific way.”

Take a look at the Instagram posts shared by the designer below and stay tuned for updates on his namesake jewelry brand. In related news, why not check out Virgil Abloh’s “West Village” documentary?
