IKEA taps Off-White's Virgil Abloh to re-design its iconic FRAKTA bag

After teasing a potential collaboration with Off-White’s Virgil Abloh, Abloh has finally revealed his take of IKEA’s iconic FRAKTA bag at Democratic Design Days in Sweden. Made entirely from cardboard with tape placed at the seams, the re-designed tote features the word ‘SCULPTURE’ written on the side, combined with yellow and blue straps to reflect the Scandinavian furniture giant’s classic colour scheme. You can watch Democratic Design Days here, with Abloh coming on at around the nineteen minute mark.

MELLOW

I get so mellow on cloudy/rainy days and nothing is more low key and cozy than overalls. These are my favorite pair and I got them a couple years ago in Paris, France. Overalls usually come with a ton of pockets so no need for a bag. We are going for a mega minimalist look.

I love pairing overalls with a turtleneck because it’s an instant look that allows both pieces to stand out. The contrast of the yellow and black colors brings more life and dimension to this super basic outfit. Hoops or statement earrings can glam up the conservative style of a turtleneck and add a girly touch to the boyish silhouette of these overalls. + white adidas for a clean swaggy feel to bring the look home!

TOMBOY GLAMGIRL

This is my favorite look to date, I don’t know how we found this amazing ally but I am so thankful and obsessed with how this spread came out.


I’m finally featuring these lace up thigh high boots that I got for xmas. I have been wearing them so much, even when I shouldn’t, like when it’s at a rainy and muddy music festival or it’s Wednesday morning and I’m working postmates🙃… sometimes I just like to dress up for no reason at all. The hoodie is instant tomboy paired with the girly tights and boots. + the purse, choker and hoops bring the tomboy glamgirl styles together. I love how it all works in a weird way and lets me feel boyish & badass & girly & sexy all at the same time.

“My shirt is a vintage Champion pullover from eBay, shoes Iro cuban heel boots with socks over them. Seen many women wearing sock boots, but never a male? Thought would be fun. My pants are thrifted army/cargo pants from New Jersey. The 90s/army/future/Raf everything and anything inspires my style. I’m really into a mixture of chunky with clean. I’m all about a really nice silhouette honestly.”

CRAZY SEXY COOL

I always wanted to be a member of TLC🎶 and I’ve been feeling super musical as of late so why not channel my fave childhood girl group and feel swaggy af. I actually didn’t get to posting any looks last week because I was prepping for a gig with my band Lowtops (👽🙌🏽shameless promo @lowtopsmusic check eet out !) 🚀

We’ve been having some colder days in LA this week so I got to bring back some warmer garms. The cropped hoodie and high waisted mom jeans is a perfect tom boy glam combo. It’s sporty but still shows a lil midriff and some curves. I threw on a fatty chain choker and some hoops just to add a lil more glam. Paired the whole thing with my Dr. Martens lookalikes and this pleather fanny pack to top the look off with a boyish touch. Yellow socks becos extra and pig tails becos cute and lip gloss is poppin! Tough Cutie. Cute but psycho. You know me. I’m a weird one. 💋🙃 follow me on insta if you’re weird too (@ipopharr)
