Virgil Abloh!

Virgil, Virgil, Virgil - November 28, 2021 we lost a giant and his name is Virgil Abloh. Virgil passed on at the mere 41 years of age. Virgil has impacted my life in so many ways that I can not select just one moment. When I ask myself, honestly how did he impact you? Virgil was creative head of LV and his own amazing brand Off-White and I had not yet materialized my plan to work with him. Then one thing comes to mind. I did seize an opportunity to hear him discuss the fusion of fashion, art, culture and sustainability on Clubhouse one night and I could not believe my ears. Who would have thought that in such a short time Clubhouse would bridge the divide between the everyday people and industry leaders. For this I am thankful! Virgil’s talent, conceptual skills, ability to birth a vision, cross branding, cross industry vertical integration and humility surpasses any other accomplished designer of this era. Merci Virgil for being you. You will live on in many of us as we look to your b

LRG: The Neoplastic Polo Tee | Know the Inspiration Behind Your Clothes Fellas!


Lifted Research Group (BKA) LRG seems to get more and more interesting as their clothing line matures. I feel that they offer some of the best put together looks within the urban clothing market. LRG should not be viewed with a one-dimensional perspective or just as urban. Never has their look been about oversized, too baggy clothes. In the Fall of 2008 Collection, they even offer an "art inspired" - polo tee. The LRG Neoplastic Tee that is inspired by Neoplasticism or De Stijl

Neoplasticism is the technique to free the work of art from representing a momentary visual perception and from being guided by the personal temperament of the artist. Painters Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg and the architects Jacobus Johannes Pieter Oud and Gerrit Thomas Rietveld were counted among its members. Their “Neoplastic” aesthetic advocated severe precision of line and shape, austerely pristine surfaces, a Spartan economy of form, and purity of color.

Piet Mondrian has a piece of artwork that looks very similar to the design that is present on this LRG tee. The fact that this inspiration comes from outside of the everyday design sandbox pushes the label beyond ordinary and Piet Mondrian has a piece of artwork that looks very similar to the design that is present on this LRG tee. The fact that this inspiration comes from outside of the everyday design sandbox pushes the label beyond ordinary and into the future.
