DJ equipment company Pioneer DJ has teamed up with Virgil Abloh's brand, Off-White, for a limited-edition capsule clothing collection.
A match made in musical heaven, Pioneer DJ and Virgil Abloh’s brand Off-White has joined forces to dream up a coveted limited-edition item of DJing equipment along with an accompanying clothing range, “SOUND ENGINEERING”.
With a grungy 90s vibe, the pair have opted for a blaze of orange across matt white for their sought-after DDJ-1000-OW controller. Designed for both portability and a full range of control settings, this is the ultimate product for partying in style.
To dress it up, Off-White also offers the capsule clothing collection “SOUND ENGINEERING”, including crisp white hoodies and tees, with silk-screen printed calligraphy and graphics in black or lurid green. A silvery pleated skirt adds a futuristic touch and a coach jacket has also been embellished with vintage treatment.
Abloh has said: “As with the skeleton CDJ and DJM I designed with Pioneer DJ, I wanted to take this opportunity to bring together technology and human interaction. And this time we took it one step further with “SOUND ENGINEERING” bringing together this medium that unites so many of us with a fashion element. Both music and fashion, in my opinion, are these intense forces that have the unique power to bring people together while letting you make your own statement all at the same time.”
The DDJ-1000-OW is available to buy from Selfridges, while the collection is available from Off-White and Farfetch.
