Off-White™ Teams up With Musée du Louvre on a Leonardo Da Vinci-Themed Capsule Collection

Merging Virgil Abloh’s modern design cues with Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic works.

Earlier this year, cultural preservation organization Italia Nostra prevented the famous Musée du Louvre from displaying Leonardo da Vinci‘s Vitruvian Man drawing. Following the decision, the court later ruled that the “precious and fragile” masterpiece would be able to travel from Italy to Paris to be a part of the museum’s honorary exhibition. To commemorate the 500-year anniversary show, Off-White™ has partnered with The Louvre for an exclusive capsule collection which celebrates the artist and his works.

The range features everything from hoodies to T-shirts, merging Off-White™’s signature logos and graphics with Da Vinci’s paintings including Virgin of the Rocks and The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne. The pieces arrive in both black and white colorways, and give new life to the iconic works. Designer Virgil Abloh has been referencing Da Vinci in previous works, including his latest collaboration with IKEA where a print of the iconic Mona Lisa was featured, and notes the artist’s influence in art, science, architecture and engineering. “To me, he symbolizes everything the Renaissance was,” said Abloh.

“I want to crash together these two worlds that are seemingly different: fashion and high art. It’s a crucial part of my overall body of work to prove that any place, no matter how exclusive it seems, is accessible to everyone. That you can be interested in expressing yourself through more than one practice and that creativity does not have to be tied to just one discipline. I think that Leonardo da Vinci was maybe the first artist to live by that principle, and I am trying to as well,” the designer continued.

The Musée du Louvre x Off-White™ collection is currently available through the Louvre’s online store and gift shop, on Off-White™’s website as well as at its Paris and Milan store locations, Farfetch, and in-store at Browns and EM_PTY Gallery. As for prices, the pieces range between $355 to $640 USD.
