Virgil Abloh Sets a New Course for Luxury With Mercedes-Benz Collaboration

Initially teased back in July, “Project Geländewagen” — a first-of-its-kind collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and Virgil Abloh — has finally been unveiled. Working with Mercedes-Benz Chief Design Officer Gorden Wagener, Abloh has designed an artistic model of the iconic G-Class, which celebrated its 40th birthday last year. As owners of a G-Class car themselves, Abloh and Wagener used their personal experience when considering how Mercedes-Benz designs could be seen in a new light.

As a means to the start of the new year with a “fresh start” that many hope for, CPFM opted to spread that message with the “Born Again ’19” hoodie with the caption “ye must be Born again”.
