Last February, Off-White finally opened its first outlet in Jakarta. A long wait since the most favorited international fashion brand of the hypebeasts was born in 2012. Off-White Jakarta, located in Plaza Indonesia, is the fourth boutique in Southeast Asia after Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok. Before coming to Jakarta, most of the Off-White Singapore consumers are Indonesian.

Founded by American multitalented designer Virgil Abloh, Off-White is one of the most favorited label of fashionistas, especially those belonging to the 'hypebeast' people. This is because Virgil's collection has street-style concept but high-fashion feel. Hypebeast itself is a term for obsessed young people (beast) with everything that is hype, especially in terms of appearance.

Off-White's existence is proven from the list of 10 most hit fashion brands in the world released by Lyst recently. The label, based in Milan, Italy, managed to occupy the second position, overseeing other popular brands such as Balenciaga, Fendi, Versace, and Burberry. This happens because Off-White is very inclusive, looks casual but still feels high-fashion. Unlike luxury labels that specifically target certain groups that like high-fashion collections.
