Virgil Abloh’s Work Shoe

Off White releases tassel loafers with marble-effect heels.

In a time of hype and styling Virgil Abloh, once at the helm of it all, is taking a sartorial turn for the conservative and on the heels of Off White’s Paris 2020 runway he gives us a loafer.

Abloh’s playful approach to excess is just as much controlled. A marbled silvery block heel, branded insole and yellow stitching is offset by the unfussy minimalism of black leather laterals, suede backed heels and modest height. It’s poised and considered, but its undeniably the brainchild of Abloh in an effort to re-invent. Off White’s integration into the more formal fashion fold, where seats are taken by the Phillip Lims and Miuccia Pradas of the industry, holds promise for the wardrobes of working millennials (and their parents) worldwide. So far, it’s a poised and considered take on street style, holding true to the buzzy nuances of 2012’s Off White quotations.

The Off White Tassel Loafer with marble-effect heel is available at retailers such as Farfetch for $955 USD.
