Our good friends over at Filling Pieces are celebrating their 5th anniversary in a major way!! Here are some details on this weekends release! Be sure to also check out the upcoming issue of Riphort for our exclusive chat with founder Guillaume Philibert!
5 years ago, architectural design student Guillaume Philibert felt there was a gap between streetwear and high-end fashion. Seeing both a challenge and an opportunity, he started to design a unique trainer made from premium quality: ‘The Low Top’. Nowadays Filling Pieces is a global brand with an Amsterdam based headquarters and an own store based in Boxpark, Shoreditch London. Selling to 300 selected high-end retailers and independent boutiques worldwide, in 28 different countries. Each pair is handmade in Portugal, using only the finest leather and fabrics.
In celebration of Filling Pieces’ Fifth anniversary are unveiling the ‘Filling Pieces 5 Year Anniversary Pack’, consisting of five exclusive silhouettes. The Low Top Transformed, based on the signature model, comes 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. The total body of the trainers is produced with thick premium small grain leather and comes in two colorways, in all black and all white. Based on a White and Black Margom sole with a Gum underlayer. Featuring an all-navy upper that is made of premium nubuck and high quality mesh, combined with a contrasting suede navy camo heel, is the Lop Top Navy Mesh “Rizky’s” 2.0. The sequal to the all-black “Rizky’s”, named after junior designer Rizky Lasahido. Completing the pack are two signature Low Top models made with a premium patent all Silver and all Gold leather upper. Based on a white Kobe Margom Ripple sole. Each pair comes with an extra pair of waxed cotton laces, Filling Pieces dust bag and shoetrees.
