Go big or go home seems to be the new mantra of 2019 – and we’re not talking about partying. Three weeks down in January and Men’s fashion month is in full swing, and after wrapping up at Milan Fashion Week its on to Paris for the next instalment of international designers. Kicking off day two of the event, Virgil Abloh presented his Fall/Winter 2019 collection for Off-White.
Dubbed “Public Television”, the show was set amongst a giant green-screen interweaved with shrub and foliage lending a post-apocalyptic approach to sportswear-heavy designs. And the trend of the hour? Oversized silhouettes.
Starting off the runway was a slew of monochromatic, wide-cut tailoring and flared denim. While “Mister Rogers’ Neighbourhood” audio and sports broadcasts eerily played in the background, technical Gore-Tex pieces, printed basics and sportswear then followed all emblazoned with graffiti and featured in soft neon hues. Western-inspired boots almost made an appearance, with football helmets also making for an interesting addition to the avant garde looks.
The star factor came in the form of runway appearances from Playboi Carti and Offset, who donned a neon green ensemble and floor-length puffer, respectively. With Off-White Men’s Fall/Winter 2019 now out in the open, stay tuned for what Virgil Abloh has in-store for Louis Vuitton.
