Cancel your surely pedestrian plans and stay in tonight. There's a new Off-White doc out.
TEMPERATURE, directed by NO TEXT, kicks off with a behind-the-seams look at at Cardi Gallery in Milan as Virgil Abloh's team puts together Off-White's Spring/Summer 2018 presentations. The 54-minute documentary features music from @heith____. Catch it in full up top, then check out the assortment of recently added videos—including including footage of Abloh's Weezified Business Casual show—on the official Off-White site.
Abloh recently gave an extensive interview to Hypebeast, during which he traced the influence of Off-White back all the way back to Warhol. "More than anything, I feel like I'm a descendant of everyone from Kanye West and Pharrell Williams to Basquiat or Warhol," he said. "You know, I'm no one, sort of, as the first statement. The second statement is we're a part of a generation, a movement that goes beyond just the website Hypebeast."
As we reported in January, Abloh—if Off-White's Fall/Winter 2018 Paris show is any indication—is far from peaking. "I don't expect him to slow down at all," designer John Elliott told Complex. "His momentum today is a testament to what you can expect from the rest of the year."
If you happen to be in San Francisco next Friday, catch Abloh with DJ Harvey and special guest Heron Preston at 1015 Folsom. Tickets are presently available but are expected to sell all the way out.
