Fans of Virgil Abloh, Creative Director at Off-White and Men’s Creative Director at Louis Vuitton, no longer have to wonder what his home studio looks like. A new exhibition at Ssense’s flagship store in Montréal offers a closer look at Abloh’s creative process, including a like-for-like recreation of his personal studio in Chicago.
From notes and sketches to more banal items such as deodorant sticks and shoe boxes, no detail was left behind. Some of the replica items are for sale. Visitors will also be able to buy autographed suitcases from Off White’s collaboration with Rimowa and sneakers from Abloh’s collaboration with Nike.
Ssense is a content and e-commerce platform focusing on luxury streetwear. Its flagship store in Montréal, which spans over 13,000 square feet, was launched in April. ”Cutting room floor” remains on view until July 29.
