The importance of OFF—White

3 Mar



The Off-White brand is way more important to culture in general for so many reasons. I say culture and not fashion or streetwear brand because Off-white has evolved into something way more than most would have expected it to. From the amazing craftsmanship, to the industrial feel that each piece presents it all comes together quite well. This year Abathingx.com will NOT focus on the “hype”, this year we will be driving the site based on originality and innovations that is lacking in most creative circles (fashion/music/art etc.). And what a better way start our 2015 (in March) than with Virgil Abloh and his Off–White production! 

Now there was a gaping hole in the fashion world that needed to be filled and with people like Virgil we will not have anything to worry about moving forward. From the ever-evolving classic oversized plaid flannels, to the masterful layering of pieces in this third collection Off-White has solidified its presence in culture. Moving forward we are hoping to see even cooler collections and more innovative waves of OFF-White. You can get a closer look at the newest Off-White collection below or at OFF—WHITE.com

Nike is Suing Three of its former Designers Who Left for Adidas

15 Dec

Screen Shot 2014-12-15 at 12.46.51 AMNike is suing three of its former employees for upwards of $10 million for allegedly stealing trade secrets when they jumped ship for rival sportswear brand Adidas. The Fashion Law reports that Marc Dolce (Nike’s former global design director), Mark Miner (Nike’s former senior global footwear designer), and Denis Dekovic (Nike’s former senior design director) are being sued for contract breaching , unfair competition, and violations of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act. 

Not only are the former employees accused of leaking design secrets, but they also allegedly consulted with Adidas long before leaving Nike, in particular on Adidas’s new Brooklyn-based studio. (Nike says it’s just a rip-off of its own labs). Adidas is in hot water, too: Nike claims that the rival company knew of the contract breaching and promised the three employees that it would pay for legal coverage if Nike decided to go after them legally. via Hmmm I wonder if this have anything to do with Kanye West?
