In Virgil Abloh’s mind, a chair isn’t just a chair. The founder of cult streetwear label Off-White and Louis Vuitton’s menswear artistic director rethinks typical household items for the Off-White “HOME” collection, a collaboration with online marketplace 1stDibs.
The 80-strong range features objects commonly found in living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and kitchens in various silhouettes, coupled with Off-White’s signature branding of circles, hands and arrows.
Items from the capsule include dinnerware, doormats, umbrellas, a toothbrush, and even a US$105 binder clip.
The range’s colors are rather muted, with small pops of orange punctuating the monochromatic wares.
Off-White stays honest to its fashion roots, but brings them closer to home, with a lineup of pajamas and bathrobes.
“For this special collection, I’ve taken familiar items in the home and produced them in a way akin to my personal signatures prioritising craftsmanship – celebrating the ideals of both the sophisticated modernity of Off-White and the timeless luxury of the 1stDibs shopping experience,” Abloh said in a statement via Dezeen.
For instance, the Off-White-branded clock comes with the brand’s hand symbol pointed at the 12 o’ clock. The ceramic kitchenware is also deliberately “flawed,” and is emblazoned with pencil sketches.
The full capsule can now be shopped at 1stDibs.
