The influence of Virgil, in the designs, is obvious from the start to today. When all start, they used Champion as basis for the creations, now both made own creations with a minimal texts over the clothes, coincidence?… Check the new Off White collection “Blue Collar” to understand it.

La influencia de Virgil es evidente desde el principio hasta el día de hoy. Cuando todo comenzó ambos usaban Champion como base para las creaciones, hoy en día ambos fabrican sus propias piezas a las que añaden textos mínimos encima del tejido, no creemos que sea una coincidencia. Mira la nueva colección Off White “Blue Collar” para ver las similitudes.
