OFF-WHITE and Nike recently worked on a collaborative collection of uniforms that would benefit the team of refugee minors who came from a number of different West African countries.
It's reported by HYPEBEAST that the team was created by "legal interns Maud Angliviel and Pierre Rosin, who met as students at an organization that oversaw immigration administration for isolated adolescents." Following this, they decided to create "an alternative association that Melting Passes plays in" -- during which time they had a fluke meeting with Vogue's Anna Wintour at Men's Fashion Week.
Afterwards, it's reported that Wintour met with Virgil Abloh, which led to the OFF-WHITE and Nike collaboration that would require the brands to work with the players on the team to find out how they could best represent them through fashion.
