    Someone went on the vogue.com website, pulled images from the hottest collections from the hottest designers working today, curated a well edited collection of meaningless clothes.
    If you don't have that much to say, we this endless need to be a designer?
    Virgil seek validation but he should be more honest about his approach on fashion.

    This is exactly the type of things i hate.

    You've said it all. Honestly I don't understand the crazy hype around him and his work. Looking through the lookbook is easy (at least for me) to guess why fashion is so dated those days. We're bombarded with non-sense clothes. If we look almost all of these collections without the name of the brand/designer, I bet we couldn't guess who designed each collection because they look all the same.

    “Fashion”

    This guy makes demna look like a superstar couturier.

    It’s an utterly cultureless collection. A great totem for our times, mindless product with very little foundation or background. I really wonder how long this can go on, i pity the consumer who buys this.

    same, this apartment seems absolutely amazing. I would love to get more details about it from Off/white.

    I don't care about this brand at all even though i like Virgil (as a person not as a designer ) because it is just the mix of everything wrong in the industry nowadays : over hype, without substance, directionless, awful styling, borderline copycats and so on.

    Actually, this whole collection really struck a nerve with me. It’s just so insanely weak. its offensive on a conceptual level.

    Even going into the actual content of the clothes, the words decorating these poorly designed garments are incoherent. Why is it uneven? Why does it at one point refer to the archetype and other point refer to the material? Why? There probably is no why, because this idea was never worked on more than ‘it looks so sick’.
    What a cynical idea this is, pity the wearer of the ‘little black dress’. what a gesture to make as a designer.

    Man, i can go on and on what’s wrong about this, and how many times this idea has been done, better, with more purpose, grace and depth. But i wont.

    I’m just so done with this dismagazine a la 2010 aesthetic. So done.

    I demand better.

    Okay I’m done sorry for that!

    I think he does have something to say... "LITTLE BLACK DRESS", "DENIM", "BOMBER"

    Weak.
    He should stick to t-shirts, sweatshirts, and joggers.

    Awful, this clothes are dreadfully constructed and ill concieved through and through. He's lucky he has a likeable personality.

    Will we ever get over the ugly, seen before a million times '''ironic''' phase of fashion?

    This is a collection made by one of those "someone weak who tries to be conceptual." There are pieces that can literally be on other designer's collection without a blink of an eye.

    I'm curious as to how someone can present such a lifeless and banal collection with pride. The ironic phrasing is already outdated, and most of the pieces look cheap due to the poor construction.

    The moment I saw this thread pop up once again I just felt this great impulse to drag this collection on the dirt a second time. It's that mediocre, that unoriginal and that offensive to me.

    I've always had a difficult time understanding the hype surrounding Virgil because his collections represent a man who doesn't know what kind of designer he wants to be and STICKS to it.

    It's like he's this streetwear kid standing on the outside of the glass of luxury fashion trying to figure out how to transition from one to the other. The results aren't surprising at all. He has yet to inhabit the mindset of a luxury designer and truly understand all that comes with that. It's not as simple as "streetwear with expensive fabrics". Virgil has yet to overcome this hurdle.

    Not before we've played our own little game to come up with one word which encapsulates Virgil Abloh's Off-White.

    I'll go first..."CRAP"

    This poser and his annoying cult following makes Kanye West look like a genius.

    I will never consider this brand to be high fashion. Sure it might have the appropriate sort of price point but it is nothing but glorified streetwear and hype.
