A man with many talents, known as the creative director of DONDA, the style adviser of Kanye West and co-owner of Chicago lifestyle boutique RSVP Gallery, Virgil Abloh is slowly but steadily also adding the designer title to his long list of occupations.
Today his brand PYREX VISION has released a video lookbook for its sophomore collection for Spring/Summer 2013, entitled “Youth Always Wins”.
“From American designer, Virgil Abloh.
The winner will always be young.
It’s all based of his high school experience. Pusha-T drug raps. Champion gym uniforms. Caravaggio obsession. Micheal Jordan as God. Kurt cobain felt the most real. Black kid with white tendencies.
Being self-taught was the extent of his art education. Added help from living and breathing youth street skate culture combined with living in Rome and Paris.
YOUTH WINS GAMES no matter the sport. Pavement. Concrete.
Models casted from Harlem to Amsterdam to represent the YOUTH. The next.”
Made up of bold logo pieces for the most part, Abloh worked with a set number of color palettes for the new collection. The line features shorts, t-shirts, plaid shirts, caps and more, everything coming with a slightly oversized fit. Modeled by A$AP Barri, A$AP Nast, A$AP Josh, A$AP Illz, Ian Connor and Nayle Junior, the collection is now available at RSVP Gallery.
