Your first look at Off-White’s new activewear collection

As part of a short film directed by Aidan Zamiri

In the eight years since its inception, Virgil Abloh’s Off-White has become known for clashing high fashion with sportswear sensibilities and putting it all out on the runway at Paris Fashion Week season after season. From ready-to-wear collections inspired by race car culture to collabs with Nike and sprinter Dina Asher Smith, the label has consistently blurred the boundaries between sport, fashion, and art. 

The brand’s new activewear collection – Off-Active – draws inspiration from Abloh’s atelier, with classic silhouettes adapted for sport and crafted in premium Italian performance fabrics. The collection can easily be styled up with pieces from an everyday wardrobe, with its blend of contemporary aesthetics and technical garment construction. 

Director Aidan Zamiri captured the collection in a short film for Dazed, starring dancers Calm Zulu and Jakub Franasowicz, who demonstrate the clothes in action. With creative direction and styling courtesy of Frederick Paginton and Theo White respectively, Zulu and Franasowicz float above a green screen, performing in a montage of changing environments – among skyscrapers and up in the clouds – each wears pieces from the men’s and women’s ranges. 

This includes leggings and bike shorts (with signature Off-White waistband as standard), monochromatic camo prints, skin-hugging zip-up cycling tops and an array of logo-emblazoned t-shirts.
