From Pyrex to Off-White

Luxury streetwear has become indispensable over the years. Virgil was one of the pioneers during this evolution. Back in 2012, he had his first brand named Pyrex Vision. Imagine a limited range of high-end shorts, tees, socks and more with renaissance artwork. His designs kicked off so well that he slowly became a wonder boy in the high-end streetwear industry. In 2013, Pyrex was old news and it was time to take it to another level. So he did! By fall 2015, going further with the name Off-White the brand premiered their first womenswear collection worldwide. From there on, it only improved.

In 2015, Off-White was nominated for the LVMH Prize. Most recently they won a British Fashion Award in the category Urban Luxe. As for next year, there will be a major exhibition of his work at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Illinois.

The young designer has had a long and successful road. Yet he has so much to prove at the helm of Louis Vuitton’s men’s department. Nonetheless, we just can’t wait to have a glimpse of his first creations for Louis Vuitton. Until then, we just can’t judge the honey by looking at the bee.
