Buy: END.'s website from July 30
Editor's Notes: Before Off-White™, there was Pyrex Vision, Virgil Abloh's controversial streetwear label that inspired a legion of wannabe brands to follow in its footsteps. Some of those original designs have been reborn for END.'s exclusive Off-White™ capsule, "Till The END." The duo's first joint effort in two years, "Till The END." is an expansive reworking of Abloh's design cues.
Not unlike its exclusive 1017 ALYX 9SM line, END.'s bespoke Off-White™ wares are immediately familiar to anyone who knows Abloh's imprint, with some tweaks that distinguish them beyond the ordinary. There's a particularly strong graphic element to most of the items, which isn't unusual, but END. ups the ante with an illustrative "Till The END." print that graces many of the special pieces, occasionally rendered in the London-based retailer's signature blue.
Designwise, many of the garments mirror the motif of Off-White™'s recent Pioneer partnership, incorporating rave-y flair (very British of them) by way of tracksuits and a varsity jacket. Meanwhile, the Pyrex touches come by way of that inimitable Caravaggio painting, emblazoned atop the front of hoodies and T-shirts or embedded into the rear "X" logo. The garments are all, appropriately, black, white, or blue, both acknowledging END.'s signature shade and riffing off Pyrex's preferred palette.
There's a new "Bandit" illustration that reflects Off-White™'s occasional interest in cartoony characters, joined on tees and jeans by Off-White™ logos and that graffiti-style text, which even appears across the seat of the slim pants. Bucket hats, leather wallets, the signature industrial belt, and some flashy jewelry make for a properly luxe take on clubby weekend classics.
