Off-WhiteTM Collaborates With Church’s For Footwear Line
A footwear collection personally designed by Virgil Abloh.
Designed by Virgil Abloh, Church’s and Off-WhiteTM have worked together to bring a capsule footwear collection. The line first made its public debut on the runway during the Off-WhiteTM “Spaceship Earth: an Imaginary Experience” Paris Fashion Week show. Now, the collection has finally arrived.
The genderless collection “collapses the progressive ethos central to Virgil Abloh’s ‘Question Everything’ philosophy,” with the craft and style of Church’s footwear history. It features Abloh’s signature of using references on designs to give them an entirely new context while simultaneously keeping their true nature. This makes the Burwood x Off-WhiteTM, which was the first drop in Abloh’s “remastering a classic” journey,” the perfect start to the collection.
The classic full brogue oxford takes its name from Church’s Burwood style, which has had a history in the brand since 1953. Although it’s a vintage style, the shoe contains “distinctive dovetail patterning emerges with a new, contemporary identity.” Other modern details include the black brushed calfskin upper, and a white screen-printed “Special Events” written on the outside in Off-WhiteTM’s notable script. A Off-WhiteTM hashtag is also adorned on the shoe to underscore the style’s shared origins.
Burwood x Off-WhiteTM is currently available at Off-WhiteTM and Church’s stores, and on church-footwear.com. Discover the campaign below.
