Vigil Abloh’s Off-White “Queen” collection in partnership with superstar tennis player Serena Williams is making its first release!
Back in August, Vigil Abloh teased his “Queen” Collection with tennis player Serena Williams by posting a picture of the infamous Off-White logo showcasing her name.
We knew that the “Queen” Collection included black and white tennis dresses illuminated with the designer’s signature branding, a bomber jacket, a bag, a silver version of the NikeCourt Flare 2, and versions of Abloh’s Blazer and Air Max 97 with gradient midsoles. However, we didn’t know when to expect any of these items!
Fans knew back in September that the first sneaker that was expected out was the duos Nike Blazer Mid with a tan and white upper with a pink and purple gum like bottom and of course the signature Off-White tag. But there was still no set date on the release!
On Wednesday, Canadian retailer Ssense took to their Twitter to announce that the sneaker could be expected in retailers on Thursday, October 25th!

When it came to the design behind this collection, Abloh said;
“With Serena, we have one of our generation’s most powerful, inspiring athletes as the muse. I was trying to embody her spirit and bring something compelling and fresh to tennis.”
