If you wanted to get your hands on the Abloh x IKEA collaboration go ahead and put your money to the side because the prices have reportedly dropped!
It’s been a long time coming for the collaboration between Off-White creative director Virgil Abloh and home furnishing mega house IKEA, but the wait is finally over.
This collaboration, “MARKERAD,” which was previewed during Paris Fashion Week SS19, features pieces that Abloh says are targeted at millennials who are moving into their first home.

With that market in mind, the pieces are on the more affordable side given the Off-White branding associated with it.
Items in the collection like the “SCULPTURE” bag and pillow cushions will be on sale for as low as $15 while bigger pieces like large rugs branded with “KEEP OFF” and “WET GRASS,” which will go for upwards of $200.
Not only does this collaboration feature homeware collection with Abloh’s signature branding, but the rugs, tables, chairs, cushions and more which are all reasonably priced.
“We’re looking at that first phase of adult life, when you start making purchases for your space,” the Off-White designer noted. “Largely people grow up in their parents’ environment. They’ve never had to consider furniture. Then when they’re off on their own and have their own aesthetic, what are their first purchases? I’m interested in thinking about how those purchases are informed.”
IKEA says that the collection will be available this coming November, with pop-ups rumored to be released as early as April and May.
They released a statement via their website that says,
“together, IKEA and OFF-WHITE look for ways to help create a home for millennials who are just starting out their lives.”
