On June 21, during Paris Fashion Week Men's, Off-White will debut "Another First Show," which Virgil Abloh is describing as "a curator's interpretation of the collection." The exhibition will be hosted at EMP TY Gallery, a temporary gallery which previews the permanent installation that will open in SoHo in New York later this summer. Curated by Polish photographer, freelance photo-editor, and creative consultant Piotr Niepsuj, the exhibition will follow Virgil's Milan Fashion week show at Pitti Uomo in Florence this week.

“The concept that I’m debuting at Paris men’s fashion week is a project that I’ve been working on for one year and it’s called EM PTY Gallery,” Abloh told WWD. “[‘Another First Show’] is a curator’s interpretation of the collection. A ‘ghost director,’ who is Piotr Niepsuj, interpreted my collection. And, you know, it’s out of my hands. He looked into my work and he chose how to distribute it, how to display it. There is also a video component, there are mannequins all the way down to security guards.”

Stay tuned for more details about the upcoming exhibition.
