For the past couple of months, we have been teased an anticipated collaboration between Virgil Abloh and Mercedes-Benz AMG. Finally, a virtual release has been announced via Mercedes-Benz Amg’s Instagram for September 8th at 10 am EST. Virgil Abloh is best described as a fashion designer icon. He is known for creating the brand Off-White as well as leading the design team at Louis Vuitton. As a man who has worked to stay true to his innovative approach in the fashion industry, Virgil is the perfect choice for this new venture. The new project added to his resume features the Mercedes-Benz AMG G-Class. Released so far, are short video clips providing hints that the vehicle will be designed in both a modern and historic manner. A new wide-body style paired with what look to be vintage G-Wagon wheels set the theme for Virgil’s vision behind the project. Traditional aspects of the G-Wagon will be equipped with new options. Glass windows and door handles have been replaced with cross netting as well as door strap pulls. What we can foresee is a vehicle that will truly stand out while maintaining a subtly pleasing appearance, which is what Virgil is best known to do. It shows how far the automotive and lifestyle industry has come, bridging the gap and introducing new ideas to unthought areas.
