“Celebration” is Off-White’s Spring Name Show , at the Ateliers Berthier in Paris last night. X-ray-printed blazers, cutouts and cowboy boots with arrowheads fill the industrial space built by architect Charles Garner to house sets for the Paris Opera House. It’s a fitting venue to honor the late multi-hyphenated designer Virgil Abloh, who started work this spring 6337440 collected before his death last year.
As he inspected and experimented with every piece that walked the “Impossible Blue” runway last night, Off-White’s The new image and art director, Ibrahim Kamara, realized it was a celebration. After all, Abloh is often drawn to the warm shade of indigo, which blankets the runway and where models stare every now and then, thanks to a blue pigment from the Paperwork beauty line.
