Here is Every Single Off-White™ x Nike Prototype On Display at Virgil Abloh's "Figures of Speech" Exhibition

A closer look at the MCA Chicago collection.

In case you haven’t heard, Virgil Abloh‘s “Figures of Speech” exhibition is currently open to the public at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. We previously walked through the show, which spans the designer’s 20-year career, and now we’re taking a closer look at the Off-White™ x Nike prototype sneakers featured in the “Design” installment of the gallery. Titled “AN ARRAY OF AIR,” the collection gives an intimate look at Virgil Abloh’s design process, featuring deconstructed sneakers and first iterations of coveted Nike collab pieces on the market now.

The art pieces are all stamped with Virgil’s signature design features: quoted writing, transparent material, neon details and exposed stitching. From recent releases such as the Nike Zoom Terra Kiger 5 sneakers to last year’s Nike Air Jordan 1 “White,” scroll through the gallery above to see the unreleased samples of the collabs. The 50-piece collection also includes Virgil’s take on the Air Jordan 4, Air Force 1, Air Max 90, Vapor Street Flyknit and Waffle Racer.

For more from Virgil Alboh, take a look at his first Louis Vuitton jewelry campaign.
