Days after he announced his three-month work hiatus, Virgil Abloh returned to Twitter to tease Off-White's fast-approaching collaboration with Undercover. The multi-hyphenate posted a graphic that featured a skeleton over the collections's official name: "Underoffwhitecovers."
Undercover founder Jun Takahashi also shared an Instagram video that provides a closer look at the capsule. The comedic visual features a collection of clips in which Japanese-speaking characters are in a park while wearing pieces from the collaboration. We see an assortment of co-branded T-shirts, hoodies, and athletic shorts with the brands' respective signature graphics: Off-White's arrows and diagonal stripes and Undercover's skeleton and hand.
According to Takahashi, "Underoffwhitecovers" will drop this Saturday at select Off-White retailers and the brand's online store, as well as MADSTORE UNDERCOVER in Laforet Harajuku, Undercover Kanazawa, Sendai, Nagoya, Kyoto, and Hankyu Mens Osaka. It will hit Undercover's online shop Sunday.
He also announced that the full "Underoffwhitecovers" fill will premiere at 6:30 p.m. Saturday inside the Undercover Aoyama store, coinciding with Vogue’s Fashion's Night Out.
Abloh recently told Vogue he was taking a break from traveling and scaling back his work to focus on his health."Ultimately, everything is fine, but the doctor told me 'This pace that you've sort of pushed your body—to fly all these miles, do all these different projects—is not good for your health,'" said Abloh, who is also heading Louis Vuitton's menswear. "Essentially I’m working from home for the next three months, and in large part all my marketing events I’m cancelling."
