Louis Vuitton menswear artistic director Virgil Abloh’s clout in the hype streetwear game is perhaps second to none. Find another fashion frontman who can hawk quotation-marked wares with as much panache and turn them into hype-worthy fashion statements that hook the same crowd as Supreme does. While the Off-White founder has designed items ranging from furniture with Ikea to crystal lighting fixtures with Baccarat to glass water bottles with Evian, the one segment he hasn’t really gave a whole-hearted shot in is jewellery design (though some can argue his recent UNICEF bracelets with Louis Vuitton count too). For those in the know, Abloh quietly showcased a few diamond-paved paperclip-shaped accessories during Paris Fashion Week in 2019 at an Off-White pop-up. Tapping on the simple idea of interlocking paperclips – think of them as the precursor to chainlink jewellery – this Office Supplies collection is fashioned in gold and optioned as earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. This time around, Kanye West-approved jeweller Jacob & Co. is throwing its name into the hat, helping Abloh with the expertise needed to produce these guilded pieces with finesse. But just because you have the means doesn’t mean that they’re selling them to those with the most greens. Because of its bespoke nature, Abloh and Arabo want to verify each request, ensuring that each piece lands in the right hands. In order to do so, all interested parties should email to:
