EXCLUSIVE: Virgil Abloh Opens Off-White Boutique, Signs on for DJ Residency at Wynn

Although his Off-White wares were most recently shown in Paris just two days ago, Virgil Abloh’s line will soon make its way to Las Vegas, too.
The designer and DJ has inked a deal with the Wynn Las Vegas to open the first West Coast boutique for his label. The Off-White store will be located in Wynn Plaza and is slated to open in July.
In addition to the shop, Abloh has signed on with Wynn for an official nightlife residency. He’ll start by DJing at XS Nightclub on June 29, then will hit Encore Beach Club on September 13. He’s scheduled to perform through the rest of the year, including an appearance he’s making with the South African DJ Black Coffee on Oct. 11 at XS. Together, they’ll spin under the name White Coffee.

This makes Abloh’s presence at the Wynn threefold — last year, Wynn Plaza became home to the multimedia sculpture “Arrows and Flower Neon Sign,” which the designer created with Takashi Murakami.
“Pushing the boundaries of where art, fashion and music collide has been a driving force behind our success, where every experience we present to guests first passes a litmus test for originality,” said Wynn Nightlife managing

White Man Refuses To Let Black Men Enter Apartment Without Proof Of Residency [Video]

In this week’s edition of white people never learn , a man that Twitter has named Hallway Hasselhof refused to let his Black neighbor into his apartment building.

“What are you doing in my building?” the white man asks. “You don’t live here.”

Chika Okafor posted video of the confrontation to social media noting that he was interrogated for the crime of existing in a white space as a free Black man. Writing that the man in the video “interrogated” him while he was waiting for a Lyft on the first floor of his apartment building with a friend, who caught the whole exchange on video.

“I’ve lived here 27 years and I’ve never seen you,” said Hallway Hasselhof. Apparently, Okafor should have sent out an e blast informing everyone in the building that a Black man had moved in, to prevent a scene like this one from unfolding.

The white man was visibly upset that Okafor was not losing his composure because he folded his arms and stated “I can be as cool as you.”

“You left your MAGA hat upstairs, man,” the friend filming the heated conversation tells the man in the video.

Obviously this isn’t sitting well with Twitter who had a lot to say about Hallway Hasselhoff.

“What was with him criticizing you for being calm, collected and cool. These people can’t stand that a black man can be more dignified and cooler than they will ever be,” one Twitter user commented, Yahoo reports.

“If he was truly backing down to be neighborly, he would have done neighborly things like introduce himself or extend a handshake,” another person wrote. “His intentions were very clear.”

No word on what happened to Hallway Hasselhoff yet but we’re sure the Twitter detectives will identify him soon!
