Off-White collaborates with Victorinox on Swiss military knife impressed by historic instruments

by Editors Staff

The prolific collaborative output of late American designer Virgil Abloh continues with a brand new Swiss military knife, created in a partnership between historic Switzerland-based Victorinox and Abloh’s Milan-based label Off-White. Embarked upon over two years in the past, the pocket knife – formally titled ‘Off-White c/o Victorinox Restricted Version Swiss Military Knife’ – marks one in all quite a lot of posthumous collaborations from the genre-spanning designer, who died near a yr in the past, on 28 November 2021. 

Talking from the higher flooring of Victorinox’s new retailer on London’s Oxford Road – which opened yesterday (17 November 2022) – Victorinox CEO Carl Elsener Jr, the great-grandson of founder Karl Elsener, and Carl’s spouse Veronika Elsener, chief advertising officer, say that it was Abloh who first approached the model in regards to the challenge. ‘He’s such an icon of tradition; you’ll be able to see how he’s at all times approaching issues in a really conceptual approach,’ says Veronika. ‘Bringing that to our merchandise actually adjustments the attitude. He has change into this celebrity, an eminence.’ (Carl provides that the couple’s daughter, then finding out industrial design in Los Angeles, was significantly excited in regards to the prospect of a collaboration with Abloh).
