The moment has finally arrived as we prepare to witness the first ever collection from two of the industries passionate creators – Virgil Abloh and Ikea. The Swedish founded, Dutch-based multinational company which specializes in designing and selling of furniture and kitchen appliances announced their collaboration with the Founder of the ‘Off-White’ fashion brand in 2017.
Since the announcement was made, not much was heard from both camps. Virgil accepted the role of the artistic director at Louis Vuitton’s menswear department. But, not long ago, the silence was broken when Ikea placed a video on their Instagram page to reveal a conversation that will take place on April 30, 2018.
This according to the video, will revolve around the process, ideas and prototype of the two heavy creative bodies. Virgil’s track records of marrying the street and high-end fashion styles could once again be seen in the different field and he may add an extra touch to the Ikea’s signature Frakta tote bags.
