After working with OFF-WHITE early on, Smets is pleased to announce an official collaboration with the Virgil Abloh-led label. The collection — deeply rooted in Belgian art history, and more specifically artist René Magritte — pulls inspiration from the surrealist movement, with the main graphic elements being reminiscent of Magritte’s work.
OFF-WHITE x Smets consists of four pieces, including a T-shirt, hoodie, industrial belt, and socks. The collection becomes available exclusively at Smets’ new pop-up space in Brussels, located at 53 rue de Namur, beginning December 14. A special invitation-only event is taking place prior to the release on December 13.
