Virgil Abloh Teases New Off-White x Nike Colabs via Interactive ‘PUBLIC DOMAIN’ Internet Archive
Almost immediately after the announcement of his new ICONS book, Off-White’s Virgil Abloh has launched an interactive Internet archive titled PUBLIC DOMAIN. Modelled after the file directory system of a Macintosh computer, the archive is packed with hundreds of multimedia files relating to the prolific collaborator’s work with Nike so far. BTS photos, archival references, Photoshop files, rare pre-production samples, and even Abloh’s personal text messages are revealed.
Some files of note are images of prototypes of the Air Presto that was included in the extremely hyped ‘The Ten’ collection from 2017, alongside alternate options for the Air Max 97, Air Max 90, and other styles that also highlighted the pack.
If the extensive library is a lot to take in, pay attention to the scrolling bar at the bottom of the web page that shows every Off-White x Nike colab so far: Abloh’s just teased seven upcoming colabs that are ‘ACTUALLY PENDING’. The pixilation isn’t too strong for the sleuths at SF to identify two Dunk Lows, which have been previously spotted by various sneaker leakers. There also appears to be the ‘Canary Yellow’ Air Jordan 1 High in the mix, and it’s likely there are also some more museum Air Force 1s. Plus, what is suspected to be two new tennis shoes in continuation of the Serena Williams colab. In any case, this must mean the official reveals are imminent.
