Wow Virgil… Though he keeps standing behind the fact that this debuted in Milan in January.. & that 100% of proceeds go to his ‘Post-Modern’ scholarship fund… still seems pretty tone deaf to me. You can support a black owned business directly. Virgil Abloh you turn 40 in a few months bro. Virgil Abloh does not own Off White. It’s owned by parent company #NewGuardsGroup which was interestingly enough acquired by online luxury retailer @farfetch People are having a pretty negative reaction to this drop… & strangely it’s incredibly hard to find on the site. 🧐 And just a PS— with a lot of my recent research I’ve come across countless black owned brands that are actually very affordable. So if anyone needs recommendations, just take a scroll or send me a dm. #OffWhite by #VirgilAbloh #Farfetch #fashiondesign #fashionnews #highfashion #streetwearnews #streetstyle #streetwearfashion #fashion ☁️ #streetwear #streetfashion #wtf #isupportyoungblackbusinesses #Milan #milanfashionweek #mfw #OffWhitehoodie #blackdesigner #blackownedclothing #designer #blackownedbusinessesmatter 🖤 #PostModernScholarshipFund 💸 #fashionfail #screenprinting #fail ❌ #blackownedbusiness #OffWhitebag #blackownedbusinessess ☁️☁️☁️☁️
