Playing on the theme of illusion, the collection replicates the familiar through the deceptive lenses of trompe l’oeil and filtrage.

Virgil Abloh shared that the collection was inspired by the “idea of challenging preconceived notions and reimagining established codes.”

Using extreme elevation, the collection re-appropriates what’s “normal”, to redefine how our minds identify archetypical wardrobes that are tied to societal presumptions.
