No one ever doubted that Virgil Abloh was rubbing shoulders with the upper crust, but sometimes you need to be confronted with something to process it. A shot of Abloh’s ‘Friends and Family’ list for the ‘Queen’ collection has surfaced, and the names on it reveal an insane inner circle.
Sure, there are fashion connects, but then there’s a mix of pop culture and political royalty. Who knew Abloh was buddy-buddy with Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey? More so, who knew they’d even want to rock Off-White Nikes? The Knowles’ feature, as does Gwyneth Paltrow and Anne Hathaway, whose pairs sandwich Phoebe Lovatt’s, the journalist who mightn’t be a Hollywood A-lister but is a streetwear-reporting boss. Keep your eyes peeled to see these pairs again at the next Obama family vacation.
