The OFF-WHITE collection debuted during Paris Fashion Week and for Fall/Winter 2019 Virgil Abloh looks to childhood and the dawn of broadcasting media. The garments boldly embrace movements in contemporary fashion with a millennial-forward aesthetic. Proudly dubbed 'PUBLIC TELEVISION,' the range of graphically enforced clothing is reminiscent of the times before social media took over the scene and significantly impacted cultural structures.

The OFF-WHITE collection embraces these "childhood memories" and Abloh goes on to specify that it is the fundamental factors of our identity that he sought inspiration from. The Fall/Winter 2019 offerings do contain some form of teenage angst as the references to old forms of media have a rather dystopian and unsettling effect on the reminiscing psyche.
