A First Look at Virgil Abloh’s Limited Social Studies New York T-Shirt Design

During this weekend’s eagerly-awaited Social Studies event, attendees will have the chance to meet with some of the biggest names in the youth culture, customize a variety of garments and listen to exclusive talks between creatives.

Emblazoned with “STUYVESANT LEADER PHYSICAL ED.” verbiage, the red/yellow and black/white shirts juxtapose the collegiate text on the front with the logos of every single event contributor on the rear, making for a crowded, yet communal, design.

All proceeds of the $ 100 USD shirt will go to Casita Maria, a Bronx-based youth charity. Guests will be able to grab their choice of tee at the event this weekend, November 16-18.

Most recently, Abloh got into hot water over his work on Serena Williams’ GQ cover.
