New Concepts@Nordstrom is pleased to announce Concept 018: Virgil Abloh Securities. In partnership with his estate, the latest iteration of New Concepts is a celebration of Virgil Abloh’s multidisciplinary practice across fashion, art, and culture.
What started as a WhatsApp conversation about reimagining retail evolved into a way to amplify the work of Virgil Abloh Securities across art, architecture, engineering, creative direction, industrial design, fashion, film, writing, and philanthropy. Virgil Abloh Securities is a Virgil Abloh-founded creative corporation that intends to maintain Abloh’s approach and ethos over the coming years.
Spanning fashion, art, music, and culture, the far-reaching practice of late visionary Virgil Abloh (Rockford, Illinois, 1980–2021, Chicago, Illinois) fundamentally reshaped how we see creativity and the world around us. True to Abloh’s genre-defying practice and myriad of simultaneous endeavors, Concept 018 unifies several of Abloh’s flagship projects under one banner. That includes his fashion label Off-White, creative studio Alaska Alaska, art store Canary Yellow, and the Church & State merchandise from Abloh’s “Figures of Speech” exhibition.
Concept 018: Virgil Abloh Securities is available online starting August 11 through the end of October at Nordstrom.com/NewConcepts, Nordstrom.ca/NewConcepts, as well as 15 retail locations.
