At this point, it’s pretty much confirmed that Virgil Abloh is the busiest man in the fashion industry, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Off-White could be teaming up with one of rap’s most fashion conscious figures, Playboi Carti.
Rumours began when artist @_artdealer_ unveiled an illustration that sees the iconic Off-White cross logo and a caricature drawing of the Playboi himself, wearing what looks to be Off-White’s legendary Industrial Belt and a pair of Off-White x Air Jordan 1 sneakers. There’s no official word yet on whether or not this collab has been green lit, but Off-White’s official Instagram account commented on the post with “!!!!!!!!!!!!™”. To add fuel to the fire, @_artdealer_ adds the suggestive comment to the post, “Soon**.”
