I Feel Like Abloh
DJ, designer & art director Virgil Abloh is the walking, talking embodiment of cool. Period. A professional that has been quietly going about his business, Abloh has been influencing the streetwear game for years. Between collaborating with Kanye West on music videos and touring the world behind the turntables, the Chicago native has steadily built an empire. With a residency in Las Vegas, the creative is often seen popping up at fashion weeks and art shows across the globe and has rapidly become a respected voice within the creative industries – recently hosting an online series of lectures in 'the art & history of streetwear' (seriously worth a watch if you want to know your MA-1s from your longlines).
With that in mind, we've pulled together a couple of looks inspired by the man himself.
1. For the streets.
Often seen in a uniform of a hoodie, ripped jeans and sneakers, he’s spent the past few years perfecting a look that takes casual clothing into truly uncasual environments. Blurring the lines between two styles that are so far disassociated is no mean feat, but is a lesson worth learning from a man who seemingly has it all.
2. For the events.
