Rockford native, Virgil Abloh officially has the "hottest brand on the planet."

Abloh's label, Off-White earned high praise from The Lyst in their Q3 2018 Hottest Brands list.

The Lyst says about Abloh's Off-White:

This quarter Virgil Abloh dropped sell-out sneakers, dressed Serena Williams for the US Open, released the second ‘For All’ capsule, a Mykonos inspired swim line, an Ikea rug pop-up, plus projects with retailers SSENSE, Selfridges and TheDoubleF, ahead of a thrilling athletics-inspired SS19 show in Paris.

Abloh, a former Boylan High School grad, had his Off-White label beat out high profile designers like Gucci, Prada, Versace, and Fendi.
