Exclusive: Virgil Abloh Collaborates with Kith on "Off-Palette," a New Capsule Collection Modeled by Aleali May
A collaboration between Virgil Abloh, the designer who lead the high-fashion casual-wear charge with Off-White, and Ronnie Fieg, one of New York's original sneaker-heads and founder of Kith, was inevitable. The only surprise is that it took this long to come to fruition. "We’ve wanted to work together for a while, and finally the timing aligned," said Fieg. Today, the duo released a new capsule collection called "Off-Palette," which blends Off-White's now-signature silhouettes of oversized hoodies and crewnecks with Kith's color palette of soft pastels. "The footwear and the garment dyed fleece, which are in tones of pink and taupe, added a level of sophistication, which we were both looking to achieve," added Abloh. In addition to both men’s and women’s styles, Fieg also reinterpreted the Off-White Hiking Boot, with only 20 pairs being produced. So run, don't walk.
