Vlone Hoodie is a streetwear brand founded by designer and artist Virgil Abloh in 2011. The name Vlone comes from the words “vibrant” and “alone,” which play on the company’s iconic logo, a single black stroke on a white background.
Vlone’s designs are inspired by hip-hop culture, with a strong focus on streetwear essentials like vlonehood and t-shirts. Many Vlone pieces feature bold graphics and intricate details, often inspired by the work of graffiti artists and other creatives from the hip-hop community.
Despite its popularity among streetwear aficionados, Vlone has also received criticism for its exclusive and often elitist appeal. In particular, Vlone’s frequent collaborations with high-profile artists like Travis Scott, Skepta, and A$AP Bari have been accused of creating a “culture of exclusivity” around the brand. Despite these criticisms, Vlone remains one of the most popular streetwear brands on the market today, with fans eagerly awaiting each new release from this cutting-edge label.
