Off-White women’s Paris Fashion Week presentation on Wednesday (February 28, 2019) for fall 2019 continued to evolve in a more sophisticated direction with a runway that emphasized chic looks over sporty ones. For instance, while yes, Off-White showed belts, the label swapped out its signature extra long web belts with a cinched leather waist belt with a hidden closure.
Titled “HIS & HERS,” the collection touched on sport with a checkerboard graphic, but even then while the graphic was featured on a coordinated hoodie and sweatsuit, it was also shown on a sweeping silk gown with a high slit. All told, it was a clear shift from the spring 2019 “TRACK & FIELD” collection that included a Nike capsule of clothing and shoes.
At the same time, Off-White recently launched an activewear-dedicated Instagram feed, perhaps indicating the label wants to take a more separate approach to fashion versus sport-themed offerings.
