Off-White™ and its founder and creative director, Virgil Abloh, has launched the label’s first full eyewear collection. Genderless, avant-garde and bold, the collection features shapes and silhouettes that exemplify Off-White’s well-known graphic codes: architectural linearity and of-the-moment aesthetics.
The eyewear collection include a comprehensive range of concepts and colors, each with a singular, eclectic appeal personally overseen by Abloh.
The “Marfa,” for instance, is a narrow, extended cat-eye (it’s available in hot pink and off white colorways in addition to more traditional black and tortoise). The “Alps” provides a high-impact visual statement, with oversized shield lenses and wraparound frames at the temples. The “Manchester” takes an inverted trapezoidal shape and offers a late 1980’s vibe. Both styles are distinguished by a play on volume, for a 3-D graphic effect.
On the subtler side, there is the “The Cape,” which features a 1990’s-era inspired metal oval, manufactured with a coating of natural materials, to accommodate those with metal sensitives. The collection also includes the classic “Virgil” shape; the “Arthur”, a time-less rectangular option; the “Tropez”, an oversize mask; and the “Cady”, which embodies the iconic Off-White™ concept of holes with its lasered frame and lenses.
