Off-White and the meteor shower for summer 2020

Virgil Abloh continues the sport wave in a minimal key

The show opens with a recording of the voice of Dr. Mae Jemison, the first black woman to travel in space, aboard the space shuttle Endeavor. His words, on the importance of creativity in science and the arts, came from a question and answer session with young women. A warning to affirm one's strength as women and individuals also thanks to education is what Virgil Abloh tries to promote, also thanks to his fashion. Aerodynamic shapes, essentially refined with shirts, trousers and shirts, knitwear and bias-cut sheath dresses, synchronized with the feeling of the season to eliminate excess, as well as the thousand-year-old admiration for the minimalism of the 90s.
Evening gowns (or bridal dresses) in white technical fabric, combat pants and anorak in PVC with a print that recalls meteor flames. The parade is in fact called "meteor shower", which shakes and leaves circular craters that Virgil has chosen to wear on long leather gloves and cut-outs for sweaters and tops, as well as in completely conceptual handbags, just for via the large circular openings in the middle. The gruyere effect also appears on ankle boots and wedges, heel included. Perhaps also an affectionate nod to the "Cheesehead" hats and helmets traditionally worn by fans at sporting events in Wisconsin, where Virgil was born. A cosmically relaxed and minimal collection more than ever.
