Virgil Abloh showed up to the recent CFDA Fashion Awards in New York in a ‘suit’ look that was ambiguous to say the least.
Overlooking the lack of detail in the black suit itself, the main culprit here is the tie dye tee, a term that is rarely uttered in contemporary menswear let alone on the red carpet.
The odd suit is further paired with trousers featuring unflattering zip openings to (poorly) accentuate his latest Off-White Air Jordans.
The only thought that comes to our mind? A serious clusterf*ck of ‘what the hell is going on here?’
We don’t doubt the Abloh’s talent to create hype from contemporary streetwear and design but when his own suit game is this off, it just needs to be called out.
Surely raiding the Louis Vuitton suiting department isn’t an issue these days…but we digress.
Rule 1: Don’t wear tie dye tees with your suit unless you’re a HANSON member
Rule 2: Don’t rock open zipper trousers with your suit
Rule 3: If you’re going to wear hype sneakers with your suit, keep everything else muted so you don’t look tacky – they should be the centrepiece of the look, not fighting for attention with your shirt
