Off White c/o Virgil Abloh FW15

In case you've never read or heard me say it, Virgil Abloh is one of my favorite creators right now. I say creator and not designer because I do not want to sell him short. He's got so much shit up his sleeve it's overwhelmingly impressive, but less about him and more on my favorite new arrivals - this hat and varsity jacket. 

Remember that Instagram way back when I admitted I wanted a wide brim hat despite my previous mockery of them? No? Well this is it, and this is the hat that changed the game for me. I love how stiff and structured it is. It's also made out of felted rabbit fur which is pretty random but also pretty cool. As for the varsity jacket, do I even need to go in on why it's so freaking awesome?

The tee and shorts (previous season) are also Off-White. If you're wondering what's going on with the shorts, they're kinda like basketball shorts but with longer skirt-like pleats on the sides. I thought they were was strange at first, but they're actually so cool and comfy. I love the idea of them with a plain tank and strappy heels for an outfit that belongs to a tomboy from the knees up and a girly girl about town on the bottom. Actual shoes photographed are Givenchy.
