Virgil Abloh’s Off-White has become a favorite of celebrities and streetwear enthusiasts alike in a short amount of time. Now, if Virgil’s Instagram is any indication, the cut and sew label might be getting its very own store.
Virgil recently shared a photo on his Instagram with the caption “Sketches from #OffWhite Hong Kong flagship retail store.” Virgil also noted that the store will be “Opening 2014,” and with just a little over a month left in the year, it looks like we won’t have to wait long to see these sketches become a reality.
Virgil is already the co-owner of the boutique RSVP Gallery in Chicago, as well as the Been Trill store in New York City, but this will be the first brick and mortar location for his Off-White imprint. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

UPDATE: Virgil has confirmed the opening date of the Off-White store to be Dec. 12. It looks like he plans to be in Hong Kong for the grand opening and afterparty at nightclub Volar, as he noted he would be heading to the "Airport, again" on his Instagram post announcing the event. A teaser photo of the outside of the store appears to show a neon sign that alludes to the barricade tape motif seen in many Off-White designs.
Off-White HK will be located at 51 Paterson Street in the trendy Causeway Bay area of Hong Kong, taking up residence on a block that is already home to many other high end brands such as Y-3, Burberry, Comme des Garçons, and Vivienne Westwood.
