Back in July 2018, Black Coffee announced that he would be opening an art school based in Johannesburg which would be designed by famous DJ and Off-White™ designer, Virgil Abloh.
The two DJ’s share a close bond both on and off stage and have a strong philosophy of how music can help promote unification. The duo have also played sets together and now,Off-White™ has launched a capsule collection honoring the legendary DJ Black Coffee and his influence upon Abloh’s musical career.
Various staple layers are emblazoned with thematic prints informed by Black Coffee’s African roots; a print of Africa occasionally graces the Off-White™ branding at the chest of a denim jacket, while the rear multicolored “X” logo is informed by the rich yellow and green hues seen on several West African flags.
The classic washed denim trucker jacket joins a monochrome sweater, hoodie, T-shirt and two caps to complete the drop, each sporting the colorful logo and placing circular “OFF” branding front-and-center. Stylized “Off-White™” imagery adds further visual flavor to the goods, letting the bright colors speak for Black Coffee instead of explicit text.
The outfits can be found on the Official Off-White™ website. Check out the capsule collection below.
