STORY

The "Office Supplies" collection brings together the visionary talents of Jacob Arabo, founder of Jacob & Co., and Virgil Abloh, the artistic director of Louis Vuitton menswear as well as the chief executive officer of Off-White.

Deciding to reimagine the paperclip highlights the subtle significance of an everyday item and transforms it into a contemporary piece of fine jewelry.

A simple yet modern representation of nostalgia, the paperclip is reminiscent of youthful creations when paperclips became chains, bracelets, and more. Through the "Office Supplies" collection, Mr. Arabo and Mr. Abloh transform simplicity into luxury by reinterpreting a universal pastime through high craftsmanship and exceptional materials such as 18K gold, and white and yellow diamonds.

THE COLLECTION

The collection consists of money clips, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces, in 18k yellow, white, or rose gold. Each paperclip is engraved with "Office Supplies" to highlight the inspiration behind the collection. "With jewelry design, not only is technical sophistication important, but also lineage. That's the foundation for pieces with meaning," said Virgil Abloh. "Jacob for me has always been innovative, particularly in the notions of merging design sophistication and the pop-culture emanating from the streets. That lineage is the foundation for these new ideas I have designed within high-jewelry under the moniker of 'Office Supplies,' crafted by Jacob & Co."

Each piece within the "Office Supplies" collection is made-to-order, with a six- to eight-week lead time. Clients can email: officesupplies@canary---yellow.com to request an order form. Jacob Arabo and Virgil Abloh will personally review and approve every order submitted.

"We are so excited about this project," says Jacob Arabo. "We have been friends for a long time and working together just felt so right. His inventive mind, his incredible sense of design and fashion, and his energy have been a real revelation. It is a very enjoyable experience and I am looking forward to having great success together."

CREATIVE COLLABORATION

Jacob & Co. and Mr. Abloh have deserved reputations for revolutionizing their respective fields. Reinventing an ordinary object like a paperclip was a unique twist from Mr. Abloh.

"In my watchmaking and jewelry work, I have been operating at the upper ends of the spectrum, reworking high complications in watches and changing the way jewelry was perceived," explains Jacob Arabo. "To use something ubiquitous like the paper clip and transform it into a beautiful object was a real challenge. I am proud of this first collection and I can't wait to see the reaction from our Clients."

The "Office Supplies" collection from Jacob & Co. and Virgil Abloh will make everyone rethink the ordinary.
