Taking cues from FILA fashion favorites of the ’70s through the ’90s, Barneys New York and FILA have partnered to launch an exclusive men’s capsule collection. Included in the special capsule, are two new sneaker styles, debuting as part of our monthly BNY Sole Series drops. “It’s really exciting because this is the first time we’ve worked in collaboration with FILA,” says Senior Men’s Footwear buyer Chris Pepe. “There wasn’t anything off-limits in terms of design on the sneakers, so we experimented in changing the soles, lasts, patterns, and more.”
Available today, the FILA BNY Sole Series sneakers are offered in two colorways, black and white, and are a revamped take on the Original Tennis silhouette, which was worn by many tennis legends of the 1970s. The shoes are produced with premium leather, a leather lining, unique perforations on the toe, and logos representing both brands. Pepe’s team also made sure to incorporate FILA’s signature colors of navy, red, and white onto the shoes, which complement the limited-edition clothing pieces in the collection as well.
The sporty sneakers are true to FILA’s aesthetic and are reminiscent of their most popular styles over the years. “With a big reemergence of the influence of the ’90s, we wanted to play up the streetwear vibe,” Pepe explains. Complete the full look with a FILA track jacket and pants and head over to Barneys.com and Barneys New York locations to shop the full collection.
