This book details the making of "TEN ICONS RECONSTRUCTED," a celebration of ten iconic Nike, INC. footwear classics built in collaboration with the designer Virgil Abloh.
Virgil Abloh’s take on the classic Chuck 70 from Converse.
The man behind the of-the-moment label Off-White, Abloh’s zeitgeist-defining taste strips back Nike’s extensive archive for a unique look of the advanced sneaker.
Packed with the cult designer’s key codes, notably, the ironic quotation marks around everything, a strong emphasis on branding, and a heavy dose of post-modernism make this another remarkable release.
Coinciding with London Fashion Week 2018, Gagosian is pleased to present “future history,” collaborative works by Takashi Murakami and Virgil Abloh.
Emphasizing the design process of the remixed classics, HBX takes “The Ten” back to the drawing board to shine a light on the design’s collage-inspired assemblage and work-in-progress aesthetic.
