Virgil Abloh Has Created A Luxury Paperclip For Jacob & Co.

Reinterpreting daily objects is what Virgil Abloh does best. The proof was in his last Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2020-2021 show where craftsmen's tools such as a key, a brush and an oversized axe decorated the catwalk. “I call it an object of art rather than a piece of fashion." is what Virgil Abloh and Jacob & Co., a rapper's favorite jeweler, wanted to express with their exceptional collaboration entitled Office Supplies. For the occasion, the American designer and Jacob Arabo have come together to work on a seemingly insignificant object, the paper clip, to turn it into a object of pure luxury jewelry. 

The result is a series of money clips, bracelets, earrings and necklaces in 18-karat yellow, pink and white gold that are all objects of pure luxury that everyone wants to get their hands on. The ultimate details lies in the diamond paving which features the name of the collection (Office Supplies) as a tribute to initial inspiration of the pieces. Each pieces is made to customer specifications and will take six to eight weeks to get your hands on. There is one thing that is certain: Virgil Abloh is a constant source of inspiration.
