Design by Raf Reyes: during my only 20+ years on this piece of rock we call Earth, i’ve had the immense honoVR + pleasVRe to have been able to meet Virgil IRL, and talk to him 🤲🤲 Truly really he was my spiritual father & role-model to me, and back-to-back with both the ‘vre-edit piece & ‘VIRGIL WAS HERE’ statement pieces i vreleased earlier this year, this new one ‘Staff Pass/Design Ethos’ basically recounts Virgil’s years as the head huncho/head of the House. u got the staff pass/badge innit. wearing this tee, you slip it on your skin in the morning and this becomes the uniform for u to attack your day (as if u were the Artistic Director of that mastodon fashion ‘Maison’). &&& last but not least, the piece recounts Virgil’s modus operandi (when it came to giving/assigning meaning to his creations). snippets i unearthed from his OG book ‘ARTWORK’ (⇄ makes sense since we’re doin’ artwear here), digging into/noticing some cool diapositives/appendix pics he showed +++shared to/with the world innit & a tweet he tweet’d [back in 2019]… then, building on it, i couldn’t help but perfect the piece little by little, prototyping it over-and-out till it’s how I wanted it to look like//like the OG blueprint I had in mind ~ making sVRe the final vresult would be legendary//would make him proud. continuing on his legacy/vrespecting the set. like he said :: “you can do it too’. N-Joi ®® vr ❤️🔥
