Even your mate who doesn’t seem to have stepped foot in a clothes shop since Gordon Brown was doing the crossword in 10 Downing Street would have to admit that American designer, and DJ, Virgil Abloh is everywhere in 2019.
Not content with releasing a very expensive Jenga set, dropping a Michael Jackson-inspired, high-end menswear range, or bunging Louis Vuitton jumpers on kids in a photoshoot with Inez and Vinoodh, the Off-White head honcho has somehow found time to work with Italian designers Studio Temp on a comprehensive digital archive of his work to date.
The last time we featured the Bergamo-based studio here on It’s Nice That, it has just unveiled a new identity for the city’s Teatro Donizetti.
Today, it’s launched canary—yellow.com, which, sadly, isn’t an homage to Norwich City and its high-flying squad expertly presided over by German manager Daniel Farke, but rather an online hub housing pretty much everything that one of contemporary fashion’s most influential figures has ever done.
You can, if you so desire, listen to a playback of him DJing at Ibizan superclub DC10 whilst browsing through old lookbooks. And when we say “comprehensive” we really do mean comprehensive: this website features more archival content by Virgil Abloh than even Virgil Abloh remembers producing.
