 OFF-WHITE

FIRST AND FOREMOST I WANT TO MAKE A FEW THINGS CLEAR. THIS POST IS IN NO WAY MALICIOUS, JUST A CLEAR AND CONCISE VIEW OF MY PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE.

NOW LET ME START BY SAYNG THAT THE” OFF-WHITE” COLLECTION IS GARBAGE AND IS A REPLICATION OF A REPLICATION OF A REPLICATION. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW SOMEONE WHO HAS SUCH CREATIVE CONTROL OVER KANYE WEST’S CAREER AND OTHER STREETWEAR BRANDS CAN PRODUCE SUCH HIDEOUS CLOTHING. IF YOU LOOK PAST THE AESTHETIC AND GET OVER THE FACT THAT IT IS LITERALLY LINES AND CARRAVAGIO REPRINTS THEN WE CAN START TO TALK ABOUT THE LACK OF CREATIVITY.

IS THIS ON PURPOSE? I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT VIRGIL MIGHT BE MOCKING THIS GENERATION BY SELLING US UGLY CLOTHING AT AN UNAFFORDABLE COST. “OH YOU WORE CHAMPION SHORTS IN GYM CLASS? WELL IM GOING TO PUT MY LOGO ON THEM AND SELL THEM TO YOU FOR $300.”

WHILE OTHER BLOGS AND WEBSITES WILL CONTINUE TO SUCK VIRGIL’S DICK IM GOING TO KEEP IT 100% REAL WITH YOU GUYS. VIRGIL HAS THE PERSONALITY AND BEING OF A 36 YEAR OLD WHITE WOMAN. SO WHY IS HE SELLING “PYREX?” IT’S DISRESPECTFUL TO YOUTH CULTURE, TO HOOD CULTURE, TO CATS WHO DIED OVER COOKING WITH THAT PYREX, AND TO THIS GENERATION AS A WHOLE.

VIRGIL WOULD ALWAYS COME AROUND AND ASK “WHATS NEW IN YOUTH CULTURE? WHAT ARE THE KIDS WEARING NOWADAYS?” TO ME IF YOU DON’T KNOW THEN YOU DON’T NEED TO KNOW. TAKE YOUR ASS IN THE STREETS AND FIND OUT. I FORGOT, VIRGIL MUST BE SOMEWHERE SIPPING LATTE’S OUT OF KANYES ASS CRACK. I’M TIRED OF PEOPLE LIKE VIRGIL CAPITALIZING OFF OF THE YOUTH AND EXPLOITING THE HOOD FOR PERSONAL GAIN. THIS COLLECTION TAKES THE CAKE THOUGH!

OFF-WHITE

OFF-WHITE?

YOU’RE OFF-WHITE!

IT’S FUNNY HOW YOUR OFF-WHITE WHEN YOU DRESS LIKE A SKINHEAD AND YOU GLORIFY NAZI/WHITE SUPREMACY CULTURE. YOU TALK AND WALK LIKE A WHITE WOMAN. EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU AND KANYE’S MOVEMENT IS A REGURGITATION OF WHITE CULTURE. IT’S FUNNY BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE YOU GUYS ARE HAVING AN IDENTITY CRISIS OR MAYBE YOU’RE JUST NOT PROUD TO BE BLACK. BUT THAT’S A STORY FOR ANOTHER TIME. THE POINT OF THIS IS ARTICLE IS THAT THE COLLECTION SUCKS – THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOT A SINGLE OUNCE OF CREATIVITY PUT INTO IT. VIRGIL NEEDS TO JOIN THE CAST OF THE VIEW AND HAVE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT HOUSEWIVES AND HOME DECORATING, NOT HOOD FASHION.

    Alright. I enjoy the fact that you discarded everything about reputation and bullshit with the whole PYREX image, but I’m pissed at the whole “Not proud to be black” statement. I’m black, I read books, did reports, and got(And still get.) good grades. And whenever some ignorant ass nigga who didn’t understand how I spoke because he read at a fucking 2nd grade level got confused when I started acting fucking educated would he and many others would just throw away my colour and call me “White.” I enjoyed your point on this and I might have just caught feelings, but fuck, that shit pisses me off to no fucking extent. Dude, keep your awesome world view, I want to see more of it. But don’t think for one fucking second that some how that gives you the right to take part of persons identity away. I don’t give a fuck if you’re not happy with OFF WHITE, and you probably don’t give a fuck about my opinion. But really, from one to another; stop playing that shit. Or don’t. Whatever.

    hmmm…. seems like you just really hate Virgil. You mostly attacked his personality which isn’t really “Anti” is it. You sound basic dude. I get your point and agree with your stance on pyrex but also I do believe the idea is a great but the concepts lack vision.
