Luxury Fashion Line Off-White Releases "Affordable" Collection

Italian luxury streetwear brand Off-White is has unleashed a new set of “affordable” items, depending on one's definition of affordable.

High fashion isn’t for everyone. For starters, it often seems less practical than wearing a set of garbage bags held together with fishing line (and sometimes it is a set of garbage bags held together with fishing line). For seconds, that garbage bag dress can be priced as high as an entire wardrobe from cost-conscious retailers.

Off-White, an Italian luxury brand with its head office in Milan, has never really concerned itself with what is affordable. T-shirts from their streetwear line can cost anywhere from $300 to $500, while hoodies can set you back as much as $800. Something as complex as a down jacket can cost you thousands of dollars as well as your firstborn son, not to mention the cost of shipping both the jacket and your progeny.

However, Off-White has done a bit of an about-face. They’ve decided to come out with a more “affordable” line for those not quite willing to give up the gift of procreation just to own a snazzy outfit.

In keeping with the affordable theme, Off-White calls it their “For All” collection. The first capsule released back in January and was a set of 4 t-shirts and 4 hoodies, with each t-shirt selling for a mere $95 and each hoodie going for $170. That’s about three times what you’d pay at any non-designer retailer, but one supposes this is what an Italian luxury brand would consider “affordable”.

Each t-shirt and hoodie is emblazoned with iconic black-and-white graphics from previous Off-White lines, such as the intersecting arrows or quotation marks. If these seem like graphics you could produce in MSpaint and then add to custom order of t-shirts from Hot Topic, you’re not too far off the mark.

There is one recent addition: a cropped section of the Mona Lisa. This one’s a little harder to get put on your own t-shirt (mostly because the Mona Lisa is super copyrighted), but we’re certain there are less scrupulous t-shirt printers that could do it for a fraction of the price.

You can find Off-White’s “For All” line at any of their major city locations.
