For Off-White™‘s SS20 women’s collection, Virgil Abloh draws from the chaotic nature and unlikely beauty of meteor showers. We find the designer twisting patterns and joining contrasting fabrics, while unexpected draping methods come together to showcase new surfaces.
SS20 introduces the Meteor Shower Jitney, as the Jitney bag is one of Off-White™’s core products. The Meteor Shower iteration is perforated with holes to mimic the craters formed by falling rock. The bag is nonfunctional, however, but it does come with a usable pouch. Abloh ultimately challenges the idea of what a bag is, leaving the Meteor Shower Jitney open to interpretation as a carrier, sculpture, or decor item.
An additional highlight from the brand’s SS20 collection is a collaboration with Paris-based industrial designers, Roman and Erwan Bouroullec. The Bouroullec brothers have experience in everything from jewelry and architecture to photography and video, as they have implemented a linear print that mirrors slices of shale amplified beneath a microscope on shirts, overcoats, and handbags.
