Vetements co-founder and designer Demna Gvasalia recently announced his departure from the brand. Founded in 2014 with Demna’s brother Guram Gvasalia, the subversive label is known for having pushed the fashion boundaries — from the unlikely, but much talked about, collaboration with DHL to unorthodox fashion shows in sex clubs and churches.
Though Demna won’t be with the label any longer, you can still pay homage to the designer by copping some of his greatest designs for Vetements online. Resale marketplaces such as Grailed and The RealReal are currently home to some of Demna’s sought-after designs, from a metal-inspired oversized hoodie (worn by the likes of Kanye West and Rihanna) to *that* DHL tee.
Needless to say, these pieces come with significant price markups. But, for those hoping to shop some Demna-designed Vetements pieces, this may be your last chance to do so.
Shop some of our favorite Demna Gvasalia Vetements pieces below.
You Fuck’n Asshole T-Shirt
Originally released as an SSENSE-exclusive, this T-shirt is classic Vetements, from the printed quote to the exaggerated football-like shoulder pads.
Demna’s Vetements collaborated with many brands, but the DHL partnership will probably go down as his most memorable. First spotted in 2015, these super-hyped products included DHL-branded tees, hoodies, and jackets.
OG Metal Logo Hoodie
Featuring a hard metal-inspired logo on the front, this oversized Vetements hoodie has been rocked by everyone from Rihanna to Kanye West. Originally retailing for $800, the hoodie sold out rather quickly. You can still cop one, it’ll just cost you almost double the price.
“May the Bridges I Burn Light the Way” Hoodie
Similar to the hoodie above, the “May the Bridges I Burn Light the Way” piece sold out in a flash, but it’s still available at resale sites. The quote comes from Beverly Hills 90210 character Dylan McKay if you were wondering.
Those obsessed with the movie Titanic will appreciate this piece. The hoodie comes with a print of Rose, Jack, and a sinking Titanic, along with “COMING SOON” printed on both sleeves.
Though this raincoat has been seen everywhere, you can’t deny its functionality, especially now that fall is upon us. Best of all, it’s currently reselling for a not-so-Vetements $350.
Oakley Spikes 400 Sunglasses
Sports sunglasses have infiltrated high-fashion, and we have Oakley to thank for it. The brand’s collab with Vetements takes it a step further, with a pair of spiked sunglasses that are both forward-looking and functional.
Socks Ankle Boots
Last but not least, Demna’s footwear offerings shouldn’t be overlooked either. As well as the Reebok sneaker collab, we’re particularly fond of this pair of sock-like women’s boots featuring a lighter-shaped heel.
