In a recent interview with Dazed, Virgil Abloh was asked to express his opinion regarding the future of streetwear.

Considering Virgil has built his entire career off streetwear brands such as Pyrex Vision and Off-White, his answer rocked the entire community.

 


Dazed: What do you think will happen to the idea of streetwear in the 2020’s?
Abloh: I would definitely say it’s going to die… its time will be up.

 

Defending his viewpoint, Virgil goes on to explain that consumers will no longer want fresh, out-of-the-box apparel and will instead prefer to wear vintage items that they purchase from thrift stores.

 

Coming from a designer who used to sell $40 blanks for $500+, this all seems a little too strange.

 

BRICKS & WOOD, a streetwear brand from South Central, is using their platform to voice the opinion of the entire community.

 

Their message is simple:

 

“VIRGIL GOT ME FUCKED UP”

 

-BRICKS & WOOD

 

With streetwear branching in new directions, and taking on new forms every single day, it is anything but dead. Instead, it’s experiencing one of the biggest expansions it has ever seen.

The streetwear community has given rise to Virgil and yet it seems as though he has taken it for granted.

 

Let your voice be heard.
