Debuting with a shoulder bag that will quickly be followed by a tote, the Burrow Bag concept is an elevated evolution of the ‘’Meteor Shower’’ premises previously introduced by Off-White founder and creative director Virgil Abloh. These new carriers keep Off-White’s signature circular cutouts, which recall both swiss cheese holes and meteor shower craters, yet they are now imagined in more luxurious treatments with modern handcraftsmanship and voluminous touches. Ultimately, this punctured motif becomes more and more established within the Off-White visual canon; the bold graphic impact makes a memorable impression, and it both captures and reflects the attitude of its confident, strong and powerful wearer.

Model one, the Burrow Shoulder Bag 22, dropped on February 2nd, 2021. The item was released during the label’s combined-gender Spring/Summer 2021 digital ‘’Imaginary TV’’ presentation. Colors options include black, white, red, camel and ocher yellow. Initially, the Burrow Shoulder Bag 22 was the only item from the presentation available for purchase.
With a complex construction and new nappa and suede leather finishes, along with adjustable leather straps and a detachable chain accent, the Burrow Shoulder Bag combines technical acuity with an elegant-yet-eclectic aesthetic. The base features a raised curve, as a hole cutout perforates the bottom portion of the bag. But this design feature does not sacrifice much by way of function; the Burrow Shoulder Bag has room for a wallet, cell phone and other outing necessities. This design also features more volume; the closure and body feature a slight ‘’puff’’, adding dimension to the bag’s lines and silhouette. Inside, a card-holder pocket features Off-White’s ‘’Swimming Logo’’ in gold foil, as well as a ‘’Made in Italy’’ stamp. Both the hardware, which features more Off-White markings, and the leather builds have a minimally aged effect, adding a patina of sophistication to the contemporary shape.
The Burrow Tote bag will follow in March. It will be available in two sizes, and both come unlined, keeping the carrier light and portable. More information will be released about the Burrow Tote as its drop date approaches.
