Virgil Abloh aka “DJ Flat White” @ SETTINGS Civic Underground

Whilst in Sydney for the special Supply x Nike Top ten launch, Off-White founder and Nike collaborator, Virgil Abloh took the opportunity to DJ ( using his DJ moniker Flat White ) at Sydney’s Civic Hotel Underground alongside Sydney creative group, SETTINGS˚

The announcement was dropped seemingly out of the blue, with very little promotion for the event online—but drew a large crowd who were aware of Off-White’s cult status and Abloh’s reputation for high energy sets.

Virgil Abloh held a Nike Reconstruction Workshop in the top level of Pop-Up space and those VIP guests lucky enough to have scored an invite got a personal insight into Virgil’s creative process, and got to flex their own creativity when they reconstructed their own pair of Nike kicks – right in front of his eyes.

Invited workshop participants ( and a few very lucky ” Kids” plucked at random from the long line queued out the front ) were each given a pair of Nike Air Force 1’s, some velcro, coloured swoosh’s, hammers and tools to create their own authentic shoes.

Virgil Abloh Signing Nike “Top Ten” Kicks @ Dedece Sydney

Virgil Abloh Signing Nike “Top Ten” Kicks @ Dedece Sydney

On a quiet Darlinghurst street last week, hundreds of young, mostly male Sneakerheads ( many still in their school uniforms having ducked away early from school ) patiently lined up for some 4-6 hours ( even as some light rain fell ) to meet their idol, Virgil Abloh, the introverted Chicago native.

Some of them had even journeyed to Sydney from inter-state to the official Supply ” Pop Up” Store installation space – thus inadvertently becoming the personification of Nike’s most fundamental principle: ‘Just Do It’.

All those in line were in high spirits, hoping to have their Abloh x Off-White iterations of the Nike “Top Ten” kicks autographed by Virgil
