Virgil's chair

Virgil is sitting in a special edition in all black of the Fauteuil Direction a classic by Jean Prouvé, 1951.

In the fashion world everyone knows that just about everything Virgil Abloh touches turns into gold (Supreme, Louis Vuitton, Off-White). He created the installation TWENTYTHIRTYFIVE for Vitra, in which he lets an imaginary teenager look back on his youth and look ahead into his future. There were also a number of spin-offs in the form of limited editions. A collaboration such as this inevitably becomes a victim of its own success: within one day everything was sold out. We will probably see them in the houses of the Kardashians.
