Design
Where form meets function

Korean artist Coolrain Lee has given OFF–WHITE’s Virgil Abloh the action figure treatment immortalizing the designer as a Virgil Abloh x Nike Jordan 1-wearing toy figure.

Coolrain Lee is known for creating toy figures whose subjects are often pop culture icons, this time dressing Virgil up in his highly-hyped Jordan 1 collaboration with Nike that released last week and is now commanding ridiculous resale prices.

The attention to detail is incredible, although toy-Virgil does look more than a little whitewashed for whatever reason, with the figure rocking an OFF–WHITE crewneck and holding markers to highlight Virgil’s creativity and penchant for deconstructing and recreating products – much like his latest Nike collaboration.

The Jordans toy Virgil is rocking are just as stunning as Lee has included everything from the deconstructed look and OFF–WHITE’s iconic zip ties to the quotation mark detailing on the shoelaces.
