Virgl Abloh‘s MCA Chicago-exclusive merch rollout continues, with the creative rejoining with Futura for a special T-shirt in honor of the ongoing "FIGURES OF SPEECH" exhibition. Available only at the "Church & State" pop-up store, the duo have crafted a tee that blends a variety of their own distinctive design elements.
After teaming up for Off-White™’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection, Abloh and Futura’s latest partnership sees the duo revising an Off-White shirt™ utilizing imagery from the graffiti legend’s recently-relaunched Futura Laboratories clothing line. The brand’s "FL" logo appears at the chest, with paint splashes and orange blocks interrupting the text beneath. Futura’s signature "Atom" symbol adds another layer to the graphics, while Off-White™’s label appears at the neck and its preferred hangtag graces the bottom hem.
Though some Abloh goods are still available on the MCA’s web store, the "Church & State" shirt is only available in the museum itself. Check it out in detail below.
Most recently, Futura launched collaborative items with the New York Mets.
