Virgil Abloh of Off–White Talks Kanye West and Streetwear – Style and How-to | GQ

published on July 2, 2020

it's all like an open book diary for me

to be myself you know I'm just a kid

from the us skating that's like where

I came from

me and my friends we participated in

street wear for like the three or four

life cycles of it I grew up printing my

own t-shirts and giving them the friends

or the local skate things and then that

era was dead supreme is my Louis Vuitton

this to me is a Margiela of its time

there's no stylist to style ourselves

whatever feels comfortable but then who

is going to be designing who of that

that generation with all these t-shirt

brands is actually going to parlay and

play with capital F fashion so that they

respect it out of all that I wanted to

do off light I'm just a creative person

and I'm fortunate enough to be

surrounded by people that are 10 times

more creative than me ten times more

visionary than me you know I'm fortunate

to have Kanye as a friend and a mentor

and I know that the kids beneath me

they're visionaries before their time I

don't revolt against anything the only

thing that I work against is the fact

that no one told me I could do this as a

job some of the rest of my career is

like showing kids like yeah you can do

it too like there is no wall you know

it's a generation of us and I think the

one thing that brings us together is

that we just want to push ultra forward

have a say in what goes on
