Off-White Expands into Beauty with their New “PAPERWORK” Boxes

Since its creation, Off-White has been known for shaking up the streetwear and luxury market; now, their newest venture is set to do the same for the beauty industry.

Launching in early September, Off-White is releasing “PAPERWORK” boxes, a range of products inspired by the sensory aspects of our experiences: touch, sight and smell. The Olfactive, Imprint and Colour Matter boxes are each filled with different products for different parts of the body to fulfil Virgil Abhloh’s vision of using beauty as “another canvas, another surface for human expression”.

The products include nail polish, body pigment crayons and fragrances, all accompanied by a Masters of the Universe figure, another reminder of Virgil’s vision for all Off-White customers–to embrace their inner child.

Arifferdous & Mina Novski Announce Collaboration and Release the ‘Lover’s Maxi’

With similar tenets about embracing the self and what we wear being an extension of the self, this collaboration between Mina Novski & Arifferdous couldn’t be a better fit. 

The two brands have come together to create the ‘Lover’s Maxi’, a handmade maxi dress with the infamous Arifferdous’ Lover’s Kiss’ print transformed into the classic Mina Novski maxi silhouette. They took to Instagram to announce the collaboration, but there’s no word yet on when it will be released–only that the dress will be available for pre-order soon. 

Keep an eye out on their socials for updates on how to get your hands on the ‘Lover’s Maxi’.
