Purpose and Values
London, 25th March 2022 - Church’s presented the Church’s x Off-White™ capsule footwear collection, which made its public debut on the runway of the Off-White “Spaceship Earth: an Imaginary Experience” show at Palais Brongniart during Paris Fashion Week. True to Off-White’s seditious nature, the genderless collection collapses the progressive ethos central to Virgil Abloh’s ‘Question Everything’ philosophy with the artisan tradition and stylistic history of the British footwear brand.
The classic full brogue Oxford Burwood with distinctive dovetail patterning emerges with a new, contemporary identity. Black brushed calfskin replaces the shoe’s conventionally brown suede upper, and “Special Events” (screen-printed in white in Off-White™’s signature script) adorns the outside of the shoe. A trademark Off-White™ hangtag underscores the style’s shared origins.
