Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh reveals a special collaboration with Musée du Louvre. Commemorating the much anticipated “Leonardo da Vinci” exhibition, the capsule features an array of clothing items celebrating the life and works of the visionary artist.

“I was fascinated with da Vinci early on - I was in my senior year at Wisconsin, taking an art class, Abloh shared. “I was super interested not only by his artworks but also by the influence he had in many disciplines besides art: science, engineering, architecture... To me, he symbolizes everything the Renaissance was.”

In this collection, Abloh wanted to combine the worlds of fashion and high art, printing the garments with the storied paintings as well as the signature Off-White logo and diamond arrow. The featured works within the capsule include Da Vinci’s Virgin and Child with Saint John the Baptist and an Angel, known as the Virgin of the Rocks, and Saint Anne, the Virgin Mary, and the Infant Jesus Playing with a Lamb, known as Saint Anne, all woven with the master’s iconic drawings, including his anatomical sketches of the male form.

“The Louvre has always been a place of life, of inspiration for the creators of each era,” said Adel Ziane, Director of External Relations at Musée du Louvre. “We are thrilled that Virgil Abloh’s eye on the Palace and the collections of the Louvre are at the heart of this multitalented artist’s creative process.”

The collection will be available via the Louvre gift shop and e-commerce, Off---White.com, Farfetch.com, and in brick & mortar shops including Off-White™ Paris, Off-White™ Milan, EM_PTY Gallery, and Browns.
