Over the years I was blessed with friends who have created a lot of attention with their partnerships and brands. My good friend Jude brought my attention to Filling Pieces and I have watched his work load triple ever since. I received a celebratory email today from Filling Pieces on their success that briefly spoke on the unveiling of their ‘FILLING PIECES 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY PACK‘, consisting of five silhouettes. 5 years ago, architectural design student Guillaume Philibert felt there was a gap between street-wear and high-end fashion. Seeing both a challenge and an opportunity, he started to design a unique trainer made from premium quality fabrics: ‘The Low Top‘.
The Low Top transformed, based on the signature model, coming with a stronger and rougher look and feel, has uppers that are designed to look more hybrid through the reinforced parts on the sides and heel. As a global brand with an Amsterdam based headquarters and an own store based in Boxpark, Shoreditch London, they are opening the doors to both on December 6th. In addition to those stores the pack will be exclusively available through Kith NYC, Storm Copenhagen, United Arrows Monkey Time, Hypebeast and online at www.fillingpieces.com 12:00 AM CET
Featuring an all navy upper that is made of premium nubuck and high quality mesh, combined with a suede navy camo, is the Low Top Rizky’s All Navy.
The sequel to the all black “Rizky’s”, named after junior designer Rizky Lasahido. Also available in all white.
Completing the pack are two signature Low Top models made with premium patent all Silver and all Gold leather upper. Based on a white Kobe Margom sole. All handmade in Portugal, each pair comes with an extra pair of waxed cotton laces, Filling Pieces dust bag and shoetrees.
