Here's Your First Look at Virgil Abloh's "MARKERAD" IKEA Collection
First teased last year during IKEA’s Democratic Design Days event, we finally get our first look at Virgil Abloh’s collaboration with Swedish furniture giant IKEA. Called the “MARKERAD” collection, Abloh’s latest brand partnership sees Off-White™’s signature quotation mark motif applied to an array of furniture items, including carpets, chairs, cushions, shelves, door stops and more. A highlight of the preview is Abloh’s remixed IKEA FRAKTA bags, done in a paper bag style with the word “SCULPTURE” emblazoned across. Additionally, Off-White™’s upcoming Nike Air Presto collaboration was also on display.
Currently, the collaboration is still in the prototype stage, with Abloh awaiting feedback before production and official release. Stay tuned for a release date and an official list of items.
This collaboration comes right after Chris Stamp’s STAMPD x IKEA SPÄNST collection, which featured streetwear-inspired furniture items including closets, skateboard displays and sneaker displays.
