With all these Off-White stores appearing around the world, it started to feel like we were being excluded all the way down-under in Australia. Now, Abloh enthusiasts will very soon be able to physically indulge in their need for creative kicks and sleek streetwear apparel with news of a Sydney-based Off-White store which supposedly will open their doors some time in November.
That “some time in November” may very well be this week since there are some very convincing whispers circulating that Virgil Abloh will be making an in-store appearance. So you may just get the chance to be in the presence of the mastermind behind some of streetwear’s most popular and forward-thinking innovations.
“The Ten” pop-up store is also happening right now up until Sunday November 19th. Presented by Supply Store, “The Ten” has already achieved almost mythic status amongst the sneakerhead community.
It’s unique and reimagined take on ten of Nike’s most classic sneakers are a testament to the creative abilities of Virgil Abloh and his collaborators, continuously pushing the boundaries of style. The store will feature various digital, physical and product interactive areas across multiple levels, taking viewers on a journey and telling the story behind each style.
Along with Virgil Abloh’s Off-White cult following, an official store scheduled to open this month at Westfield Sydney, the full collection of Off-White x Nike “The Ten” collaboration is also being released some time this month. Seems like it’s the week it may all be happening and it’s probably going to feel something like heaven on earth for your average budding Aussie hypebeast. Also, Abloh announced he’ll be DJing at an exclusive show.
Virgil also announced an exclusive show with local party collective Settings, where he’ll also be performing under his musical pseudonym, FLAT WHITE. The renowned streetwear meets high-fashion designer will make his appearance to Civic Underground this Wednesday 15th November for what will no doubt be an evening of bounce-flexing to techno mixed in with turn-of-the-century hip hop anthems.
