Runway Highlights from Off-White – Trendy High Fashion, Grungy Streetwear & Virgil Abohl
Printed shirts and statement accessories. Virgil Abohl and his fashion giant Off-White have achieved what many in the past have tried to do – successfully combining haute couture with the swag of the street. You can see just how popular the brand is by looking at the list of stars and starlets who regularly appear in the brand’s latest creations. Here we at FIV Magazine have compiled our favourite runway shows of the luxury brand for you.
Luxury brand that redefines ‘Street Chic
In 2013 the brand was originally founded under the name PYREX VISION. Later, CEO and designer Virgil Abohl changed the name to Off-White and launched his first own collection. His innovative and cool designs were quickly carried in the hottest music videos of the hip hop industry and the brand quickly established itself as a luxury brand. The belt became the must-have of the year and the first store was opened in Tokyo. Later, Hong Kong, London and New York joined in.

Urban clothing and playful cuts for the summer
Off-white is varied. It stands for haute couture and street style. For young and old. Masculine and feminine. This is exactly what is reflected at the brand’s international fashion shows.
Sporty fashion show with luxurious flair
For the 2019 fashion show, the luxury brand Off-White had only the hottest and most exclusive models such as Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid on the catwalk. Icons of the sports world were also represented here as models. No surprise when you remember that the theme here was “Track and Field”.
Bold and casual streetwear with a touch of grunge
Wide trousers with high waist, printed shirts and holes in the shirts. This is how designer Virgil Abloh imagined the 2017 fashion for the coming summer. At that time, the current brand was still considered a newcomer among luxury brands. Check out one of the first big fashion shows of the brand.
Minimalist Prêt-à-porter in the name of the 90s
Again the outrageously good looking Hadid sisters were to be seen on the catwalk. Georgina Grenville and Audrey Marnay, model sizes of the older generation, were also present. In 2020 Virgil Abloh and his team mainly relied on lots of sheath dresses and slanted cuts.
Feminine menage of noble tulle dresses and royal blouses
The inspiration for the 2018 summer collection was none other than Volks Liebling and fashion icon Princess Diana. For months, the creative minds of off-whites had been scrutinising their former outfits in order to do justice to their legacy with their new collection. How they succeeded, you can see here in the video.
Diverse and rebellious winter collections
The imagination and inspiration of Virgil Abohl and his team is boundless. And even though each collection always sets new trends, the brand’s designs are still typically off-white. They are confident and elegant, yet always a little rebellious and cheeky.
Glamorous chic dresses and confident accessories
Shoulder-emphasized cuts and smooth leather – this could be seen more and more at the Fashion Show 2019. But even those who are looking for rather fashionably wild outfit combinations will not be disappointed. So satin is quickly mixed with fur and small crystals are stuck on gloves as well as on handbags. Watch the complete show here in the video.
Innovative fashion show with Instagram suitable outfits
According to Virgil Abloh, the 2019 fashion show was inspired by the many advertisements and influences on television. The rhymes of rap in the background were intimidating, the chosen accessories made people think. The brand remained true to its typical cuts and outfits with its collection.
Muted colours and wide cuts for the men
“Tornado Warning” was the name of the autumn/winter collection Off-Whites. While the combination of delicate knitwear and baggy denim enjoyed great popularity, the eyes of most viewers remained mainly on the ground. The new Air Jordan 5 sneakers, the latest collaboration between Off-Whites and Nikes, were seen here more often.
Ready-to-Wear collection with heavy skirts and innovative jackets
Opposites attract. That was definitely the case here too. Sometimes Virgil Abohl let his models walk the runway in princess like dresses with lots of tull and lace, sometimes in sexy body gowns and heavy work suits. This time he did not even stop at unusual patterns and rhinestones.
