Following Barneys’ successful collaborations with iconic sneaker specialists Vans and Adidas, rising brand Filling Pieces introduces five styles for both men and women, offering an original take on their signature handmade low-top silhouette.
Chris Pepe, Barneys senior buyer of men’s footwear and creator of BNY Sole Series, was immediately drawn to Filling Pieces and its Dutch roots. “Amsterdam has always had an underground streetwear movement, but lately there are several uniquely creative brands and concepts coming out of the Netherlands.”
To merge street style with high-end fashion, the Barneys design team worked with Filling Pieces founder and designer Guillaume Philibert to conceptualize sneakers featuring custom-made, camo-embossed Impala leathers and special Italian Cosido quilted fabrics. “Filling Pieces does a great job sourcing new and unique materials, which is something I really appreciate,” Pepe said.
Definitive black and red punctuate the exclusive men’s styles. For women, two mid-top options, in black or white, are a minimalistic complement to the men’s story.
