Virgil Abloh's Work Is Celebrated Through a New Collection at Nordstrom
Virgil Abloh had an indisputable impact within the worlds of fashion and culture — often managing to bridge the two through his inspired and inimitably cool designs, which drew acclaim from industry icons, celebrities, and shoppers alike. And now, Nordstrom's newest capsule collection is just the latest in a long line of showcases that aim to pay homage to the designer, all while attempting to capture the magnetic essence of Abloh and his wide-ranging portfolio of brands in the process.
Debuting within Nordstrom's New Concepts division — a specialty platform from the retailer that houses a number of different pop-up shops and collections — is Concept 018: Virgil Abloh Securities, a first-of-its-kind showcase for fans of Abloh that condenses all of the designer's flagship projects into one convenient shopping space and includes new styles from brands like Off-White, Canary Yellow, and Alaska Alaska.
The collection features everything from cotton bomber jackets and baseball caps to gender-inclusive sneakers, tie-dye minidresses, leather handbags, graffiti-adorned T-shirts, and even Church & State merchandise from Abloh's "Figures of Speech" exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum — with prices starting at just $50. Browse a few of our favorite styles from the Virgil Abloh x Off-White capsule collection at Nordstrom ahead.
Virgil Abloh "Figures of Speech" Graphic Hoodie
Elevate your fall closet with a cozy yet edgy touch, provided by this Virgil Abloh "Figures of Speech" Graphic Hoodie ($120). The cotton-blend hoodie is designed with the Brooklyn Museum's "Figures of Speech" exhibit in mind — hence the bold, lettered design across the front. The exhibition aims to pay homage to the work of the late artist and designer.
Off-White Embroidered Logo Baseball Cap
This Off-White Embroidered Logo Baseball Cap ($330) is seriously cool. The embroidered design provides a fresh and graffiti-inspired flair that's a welcome departure from the typical baseball-cap aesthetic. And thanks to its cotton canvas composition, the hat is remarkably comfortable, too!
Off-White Crop Logo Graphic Tee
You can never go wrong with owning a classic white T-shirt — especially if it's as stylish and meaningful as this Off-White Crop Logo Graphic Tee ($400). Splashed across the upper corner of the tee is a shapely logo graphic that aims to honor Nordstrom's special collaboration with Off-White.
Off-White Out of Office Sneaker
There's arguably no better feeling than buying a fresh pair of sneakers. And if our budgets allow it, we're hopeful this Off-White Out of Office Sneaker ($605) will somehow be the newest addition to our stock of inimitably cool designer sneakers. That soft, light-blue coloring is just so chic!
Off-White Dégradé Twist Hem Crop Top
The classic crop top gets a seriously fun and colorful makeover in this Off-White Dégradé Twist Hem Crop Top ($810) style. The top is elevated by crystal-embellished lace accents that cultivate a unique and eye-catching ombré design on the sleeves. And even though the blouse has long sleeves, we appreciate that the spread-collar shirt does offer a subtle, midriff flash that makes the style all the more sexy and breathable!
Off-White Jitney Quote Logo Leather Handbag
Now you can take Abloh's inimitable energy and artistic flair with you wherever you go thanks to this Off-White Jitney Quote Logo Leather Handbag ($2,105). The Off-White brand's famed Jitney bag gets a polished and bejeweled upgrade in this collaboration-exclusive version of the style, which is wrapped in a smooth leather finish and even adorned with glossy, statement hardware accents.
Off-White Gender Inclusive Tie Dye Minidress
This Off-White Gender Inclusive Tie Dye Minidress ($1,205) has us wishing summer would never end. From the vibrant, blue tie-dye-infused colorway and wrapped tulle design to the cropped minidress silhouette and relaxed fit, this piece manages to blend some of the year's biggest style trends into one seamless slip. Throw on your favorite trainers for a sporty and comfortable ensemble in any season!
