Off-White took the fashion world by storm in just a short matter of time. From a long yellow belt, a binder clip bag, to sculpture bags, Off-White redefined what cool pieces mean and effectively elevated what streetwear is about. Thanks to its founder and creative director, Ghanian-American artist Virgil Abloh, Off-White is now a household name and a status marker of all things hip and stylish.
It also seemed just like yesterday when the brand decided to set up its own standalone boutique in Manila, via H&F Retail Concepts Inc. Filipino fans were quick to sniff out the good news and, before you know it, the local Off-White shelves were emptied and items were immediately sold out. Now, if you're wondering which items were highly favored by Filipinos last year, below, we've listed down all the beloved items that continuosly sell out in Off-White's local store.

Virgil made sure that the brand elevates the streetwear culture. In the efforts of keeping Off-White accessible to everyone, they've learned to thrive in collabs. One of the earliest collabs that they did resulted in the revamp of the iconic Chuck 70 sneaks by Converse.
Virgil was known to have struck the biggest shoe collab ever with Nike back in 2017. Called The Ten, Virgil designed Nike's best-selling shoes and lent Off-White's design aesthetic and overall coolness to each of the chosen sneaker designs. In the country, these are the most in-demand pairs.

Virgil made headlines again when he partnered with Rimowa to create luggage that will not only let you carry your belongings stylishly but will also let you freely express yourself. Following its successful "PERSONAL BELONGINGS" collection, Off-White released a clear carry-on luggage called "MISCELLANEOUS." The see-through luggage is said to let its wearer add an emotional component to owning a suitcase. Virgil says that it's as if "you become a performance art piece just by using the thing. It’s like putting your items on display and rethinking the premise of a product."
For its Manila market, Virgil himself designed two special Off-White pieces: a hoodie and T-shirt. These special editions feature a blue and pink-tinged Off-White arrows and stripes that seemingly reflect its Manila store.
