Rugs, Bags & more...
There are no words to explain how much Virgil Abloh has managed to dominate the fashion industry, especially in the last year and after a OFF-WHITE™ and IKEA collaboration was hinted last year, we have been impatiently waiting on information regarding the highly-anticipated home-ware collection. We now finally have info on what will be on offer and what to expect, and we are not disappointed in the slightest.
Thanks to the wonder that is social media, although we still do not have full release details or price points, a look at what will be on offer has been hinted through Instagram profiles.
С креативным директором в творческой лаборатории IKEA в Швеции, показали нам эксклюзив – коллаборация с брендом @off____white. Кстати, у нас вышел новый выпуск! Ссылка в профиле, обязательно посмотрите выпуск как всегда заряженный. Пишите комментарии, как вам👇⚡️🔥#трансформатор #бизнес #ikea #швеция #москва
What appears to be the most apparent, is that rugs will definitely be on offer. Through the leaked images that we have seen so far, two OFF-WHITE™ x IKEA rugs will be available to purchase, a paisley rug reading “KEEP OFF” and the other being a red piece with “BLUE” lettering. There are rumours that were will also be an OFF-WHITE™ x IKEA exclusive take on the classic FRAKATA bag with yellow staps reading “SCULPTURE”.
Some of you guessed it! @virgilabloh @off____white prototyping a fresh take on the FRAKTA bag in IKEA’s very own prototype shop in Älmhult. “We’re in a moment where IKEA is transcending, and people are bringing this “do it yourself” culture” to the blue bag. What I’m most interested in is doing that process in partnership with the brand. It’s allowing me to put my opinion on a classic. It’s unique, and distinctly as much of off-white as it’s IKEA”.
