More Than is an ongoing series for those looking to move past cult brands and onto elevated and refined alternatives. Whether you are simply exploring or are already a devoted fan, each brand below—while tangentially related—allows the wearer to expand his or her repertoire while simultaneously standing out from the crowd.

At this point in his career, Virgil Abloh’s influence can no longer be questioned. Following a monster 2018 where he landed a role as men’s artistic director at Louis Vuitton and capped off his landmark Nike collaboration, “The Ten,” his brand Off-White was named the second hottest label in the world by the highly-respected Lyst Index. Today, Abloh’s sphere of influence is all-encompassing, from sneakers and streetwear all the way to high-fashion. At the center of this ever-expanding sphere is Off-White. Synonymous with both streetwear and luxury fashion , Off-White changed the way consumers shop, with each of its 20 and growing outposts acting as both gallery and boutique boasting impressive displays, directional design and jaw-dropping sales figures. Considering our current fascination with not only logos, but Abloh himself, it makes perfect sense that Off-White is nestled alongside global powerhouses Gucci and Balenciaga. Still, as Abloh switches focus between his ever increasing workload, recent collections have seemingly lacked the signature Abloh touch. Thankfully, Abloh’s meteoric success paved the way for many like-minded creatives to launch lines that similarly put equal emphasis on street and runway. Whether you’re looking for an Off-White alternative or simply no longer interested in the ubiquitous hazard sign, below are the labels that like Off-White are redefining contemporary luxury.
