Milano – November 20th, 2023. Off-White™ and the Chicago Bulls launch two new hats, partnering with New Era, in the light of Virgil Abloh’s great passion for basketball and his home city, Chicago.
The two hats, available in red and black, showcase the new logo created for Off-White™ and Chicago Bulls first collaboration. The team and the luxury fashion brand teamed up last January with a special capsule collection that was launched for the team’s game during Paris Men’s Fashion Week. The collection featured four limited edition items: a t-shirt, a hoodie and two exclusive patched varsity jackets.
Tonight, guests attending the Bulls game against the Miami Heat can purchase the hats as the team’s Item of the Game. Starting November 22nd, Off-White™ c/o Chicago Bulls Hats will be available for purchase at the Off-White™ flagship stores (only in New York, Miami and Las Vegas), online at off—white.com and Farfetch, as well as Chicago Bulls online shop (shop.bulls.com) and at the Madhouse Team Store in the United Center.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Off-White™ c/o Chicago Bulls caps will be donated to the Virgil Abloh™ “Post-Modern” Scholarship Fund to support the next generation of Black fashion industry leaders.
The Virgil Abloh™ “Post-Modern” Scholarship Fund (administered by the Fashion Scholarship Fund (FSF), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization) was created by Virgil in 2020 to foster equity and inclusion within the fashion industry by providing scholarships to students of academic promise of Black, African-American, or African descent. Virgil Abloh™ “Post-Modern” Scholars receive not only funds but also access to vital career support services and mentoring through the FSF.
