OFF-WHITE has collaborated with the Black queer feminist organiser Trinice McNally once again for a capsule collection titled ‘I Support All Forms of Love’. The capsule is set to celebrate, raise awareness, and honour LGBTQIA+ and Non-binary activists, while also raising funds to support the Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project (BLMP).
This is the second collaboration for OFF-WHITE’s creative director Virgil Abloh and Trinice McNally, who were reported to have connected at a Defend Black Women march, before teaming up to release a social media campaign project to aid black representation and funding.
This collection consists of two pieces: a t-shirt featuring the titular slogan in the colours of the pride flag, along with the classic OFF-WHITE belt reworked in a rainbow colourway. The latter, the belt, is especially notable as it is how the two creatives initially connected. After seeing McNally at the march wearing an Off-White belt, Abloh DM’d them and the two began their collaboration.
The collection has been teased with an accompanying campaign, which sees a diverse group pose with the collection’s tee. At it’s core, the collection aims to aid the BLMP, a “Black Queer and Trans Migrant led independent organisation sponsored by the Transgender Law Center, which envisions a world where no one is forced to give up their homeland and where we are free and liberated.” Thus, all proceeds from this collection will be donated to BLMP, which you can donate to by copping the capsule, or clicking here.
This second collection from Abloh and McNally works to highlight the notion that fashion can engage more productively with the movement for racial justice, the power of storytelling, and the vital importance of prioritising typically marginalised voices.
