Off-White (Instagram) and AC Milan (Instagram) are kicking off their latest collab, unveiling their second-year collection with a dazzling series of uniforms that blurs the lines between football and high fashion.
The Off-White x AC Milan partnership presents a collection that redefines off-pitch attire. Designed for both men’s and women’s teams, the Uniforms collection seamlessly blends formal and informal styles, infusing Off-White’s signature codes with a fresh take on football aesthetics.
Beyond fashion, this collaboration carries a profound message. Each jacket in the collection features a red tag on the left cuff, bearing an “I Support” pledge. These pledges, ranging from Diversity and Equal Rights to Social Justice, align with AC Milan’s commitment to social equity and inclusivity. The collaboration extends its impact through charitable projects in partnership with Fondazione Milan, AC Milan’s NGO.
The summer uniform features a field jacket adorned with artful patch pockets on the chest. Statement tags, proudly displaying the player’s uniform number, add a personal touch to the ensemble. What was once a pocket square is now an Off-White logo, subtly asserting the brand’s presence. Paired with suit-style pants boasting a relaxed fit, this look embodies both form and function.
For those drawn to the allure of tradition, the collection introduces an all-black Formal suit that pays homage to football’s deep-rooted customs. With an idiosyncratic twist, the classic double-breasted jacket meets matching relaxed-fit pants. “Player” graces the back of the jacket, a nod to the spirit of the beautiful game.
The informal uniform takes individuality to new heights. Pair any of the formal pants with an iconic Off-White hallmark championed by the brand’s visionary founder, Virgil Abloh: the Varsity jacket. In its latest incarnation, this jacket combines leather and wool, introducing graphic patches that include the signature Off-White diagonal on the right sleeve. Emblazoned with “OW” and “M” varsity letters on the body, as well as various thematic patches, it’s a bold statement of style and identity.
Complementary accessories complete the look, making the Uniforms collection holistic and customizable. A rolling transparent PVC suitcase adorned with co-branded stickers, a black quilted leather backpack, and a hand pouch in the same elegant leather elevate your ensemble. Grey sneakers with a distinctive red ziptag and sleek black slingback kitten heels offer the perfect finishing touch to your summer style.
The Uniforms campaign, captured by world-renowned photographer Thibaut Grevet in collaboration with Vogue Italia, showcases the AC Milan players in all their athletic prowess. The collection introduces a range of accessories, including a transparent PVC suitcase, leather backpack, and sleek sneakers, offering a holistic and customizable experience.
Designed for everyone, the capsule collection includes a grey Varsity jacket with graphic patches, a complementary hoodie, and t-shirt, along with an array of accessories. You can explore and purchase this extraordinary collection on Off-White’s site and FarFetch.com.
