Off-White has announced a collaborative partnership with U.S. Major League Baseball (MLB) and headwear brand New Era to create a limited-edition apparel range featuring several MLB team colours and logos.
Marking Off-White’s first official collaboration with a professional sporting league, the Off-White X MLB collection brings the luxury streetwear brand’s “iconic ‘meteor shower’ premise to fashion tops, reimagined with Off-White aesthetic codes in a design that is both familiar and unexpected,” said Off-White in an Instagram post, announcing the collaboration via its social media account.
Spanning several key sportswear pieces, the capsule includes hoodies, fashion tops vintage-dyed tees, and caps, all featuring meteor holes, a style moniker of the brand’s late founder, Virgil Abloh.
The collaboration with Off-White showcases six MLB clubs: Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, Miami Marlins, Oakland Athletics, Toronto Blue Jays as well as Abloh’s hometown club, the Chicago Cubs.
The launch was also feted by a campaign shot by Conor Cunningham featuring stylist Veneda Carter and her husband Weston. Pieces from the new capsule will be available via the Off-White website, as well as via in-store locations in Paris, New York, Las Vegas, and Miami starting this month.
In April, it was announced that Ibrahim Kamara had been enlisted as Off-White’s new art and image director.
