Virgil Abloh Teases Orange Chrome Hearts x Off-White™ Hoodie
Mere days after teasing the latest Off-White™ sneaker silhouette on Instagram, Virgil Abloh returns to social media to promote his latest headline-stealing collaboration. This time, it’s a joint release with luxury label Chrome Hearts, offering a blend of black branding and can’t-miss-it orange.
The collaborative drop consists of a single hoodie, boasting stark black text against a rich orange backdrop. Classic Off-White™ branding and “©2018” is emblazoned on the rear underneath a wide Chrome Hearts logo banner. Over on the front, the graphics reappear, but are relegated to the chest area and minimized. Little else can be seen of the hoodies besides that they’re a normal, slightly relaxed cut and feature tonal orange drawstrings — take a closer look for yourself below.
Look for the hoodie to drop tomorrow, March 1, at Chrome Hearts’ Paris store at 1 p.m. As Chrome Hearts’ Instagram page notes, the release is “coming to future cities soon.” Abloh has been showing a lot of love to Europe recently, with Off-White™ and Le Bon Marche’s recent collaborative Paris cafe pop-up and the upcoming Virgil Abloh x Air Jordan 1 “White” launching exclusive in European stores.
