Living Down Under has its perks; there’s the glistening beaches, wide-open spaces and relaxed lifestyle only Australians seem to have, but when it comes to kitting out in international style, that’s where we fall short. From increased prices and taxes to exorbitant shipping costs, hotly-anticipated looks can be unattainable. But that’s where Virgil Abloh comes in.
From his own musical ventures to running the helm of Louis Vuitton Homme and his own streetwear label Off-White, Abloh is a busy man, but not busy enough to forget about the style pioneers at the bottom of the globe. Following the launch of his Australian-only IKEA collaboration last year, the American designer is back to provide exclusive looks to the country.

Drawing from the gritty, industrial streets of Sydney and Melbourne, Abloh has brought fourth several looks based on his most popular silhouettes. The limited-edition capsule features a field jacket, the classic black tagged 2.0 sneakers, tees, Japanese-style denim workman shirts, the sought-after “industrial belt”, a pair of relaxed, low-rise jeans, and an electric-blue printed hoodie. Each piece is offered in a black, white and blue iteration boasting the label’s signature branding, graffiti-inspired prints and even the orange tag.
To cop a piece of the collection, it is now available in-store at Off-White QV Melbourne and Westfield Sydney. But you will have to get in quick to nab the styles before they sell-out – which it likely will.
