Virgil Abloh Reveals IKEA Capsule
But not before mid 2019 - so we need to be patient
Art Stuff 08 Jun 2018
Not only is there another collaboration between takes Murakami and Virgil Abloh popping up at Galerie Perrotin`s Paris location at the end of this month, but also did Abloh reveal further news about his capsule for IKEA.
Yes, you got us right and the Swedish furniture giant will not only drop a remodelled FRAKTA bag, but more pieces to come, from rugs to chairs.

Titled MARKERADthe collection is described as “a collection of first home must-haves that don’t force you to compromise on who you are. It’s somewhere to sit, sleep, work, and store stuff, but function is just part of the greatness. 

Henrik Most, Creative Leader and project partner of the collaboration said: “What we have designed are obviously functional design products that can go into a home, like chairs, table, rug or a clock. But they are also fashion items – statement pieces because they are unique. It’s a little bit like having your ‘it’ bag, now you can have the ‘it’ carpet too. The products have a clear function, but what is so fun about it is that they all feature Virgil Abloh’s signature aesthetic.”

Of course, one of the most stand-out pieces from the collection is the FRAKTA bag that wrote different fashion news when being compared to a new Balenziaga release that reminded the web very much of the cheap IKEA shopper.

Take a look at the pieces but be prepared to wait as the Virgil Abloh x IKEA collection is set to drop only in 2019.
