For his latest collaborative effort, Virgil Abloh pairs Off-White with French swimwear brand Vilebrequin. Together the two offer five new swimsuit styles for Summer 2019.
Fashion designer Virgil Abloh’s label Off-White has always been known for its streetwear-focused pieces (hoodies, oversized T-shirts, sweatshirts and the like), but it has also dabbled in beachwear recently, albeit a relatively small selection seen in its Spring-Summer 2019 line-up for men. To expand the selection further and provide even more options for all, they have decided to team up with renowned swimwear brand Vilebrequin for a 5-piece capsule collection.
Vilebrequin, the French swimwear label is known for its luxurious trunks, cut to be both comfortable and flattering; here, they’re utilized by Off-White as a canvas upon which to express Abloh’s signature visual style.
The collection comes in colours and prints that’s very much in line with Off-White’s brand identity. Take the Moorise Arrows for example, which features the signature arrow logo, coming in either a Black or White version, while the Towel Diagonal comes with black and white stripes all over for a cool touch.
But if you prefer a pop of colour, go for the Moorise ‘Off’ Chartreuse which comes in a bright neon yellow, or opt for a chic floral print as seen in the Moorise All Over Flowers. Each swimsuit features an elasticated waistband, a zippered back pocket, a paperclip zipper pull, and co-branded tags.
The Off-White and Vilebrequin’s Summer 2019 collection will be officially launched worldwide on 13 June 2019, and will be available at all Off-White stores and selected Vilebrequin stores.
