Everyone is STILL waiting for Kanye to release some kind of fashion line on his own, but it looks like his creative right hand man Virgil Abloh has beat him to the punch: Matthew Schneier over at Style.com has the skinny on a new menswear line by Abloh, the founder of streetwear line Pyrex Vision, the Been Trill collaborator and one of Yeezy's number one creative directors at Donda. Made in Italy, Abloh is hoping to expand the boundaries of streetwear with Off-White. “Streetwear has a one-trick-ponyness to it,” Abloh told Schneier. “I want to give my point of view and merge street sensibilities in a proper fashion context. I think that if I can merge the two, it’ll make something interesting.” They just put up an official site and the collection will drop in spring: your move, Kanye.
