PARIS FASHION WEEK MEN'S

Off-White Is Here to Outfit All the Art Dads

Photographed by Portia Hunt

For Fall 2017, Virgil Abloh built on his repertoire of checker-print ensembles, gently worn denim, and sweatshirts, showing an Off-White collection at the Paris men’s shows that had grown up just a bit. The streetwear edge that defines Off-White was still there, but, perhaps thanks in part to Off-White’s collaboration with No Vacancy Inn, the art collective helmed by Tremaine Emory and Acyde that first coined the term “art dad,” the collection was a little more dadcore than skatecore. (From the Off-White c/o Art Dad LLC capsule collection, the Fall 2017 runway featured a covetable shearling coat.) But Abloh’s audience of art dads doesn’t mean the Fall 2017 collection is only for the boys; as a series of flouncy silk dresses, fur-embellished coats for men and women alike, and oversized knits proved, Off-White doesn’t play by any gender rules, and neither do the art dads.
