John Elliott Também Criou Sua Versão Do Air Force 1 White/White

06 nov 2017

No espaço montado pela NIKE na COMPLEXCON, no final de semana, reinou o AIR FORCE 1.

Os festejos dos 35 anos do tênis incluíram uma área de customização, uma exposição de grails, além da apresentação do projeto AF-100, onde – além das 5 edições comercializadas, assinadas por ROC-A-FELLA RECORDS, DON C, VIRGIL ABLOH, ACRONYM e TRAVIS SCOTT – o grande astro eram edições FRIENDS AND FAMILY da mais clássica colorway do tênis, a white/white.

Faziam parte do projeto nomes como PUBLIC SCHOOL NEW YORK e o estilista JOHN ELLIOTT, que apostou uma edição de cano baixo, marcada pelo requinte dos materiais e pelas camadas de couro, que formavam sombra e criavam um novo volume para os painéis do clássico tênis.

Sem previsão de lançamento comercial, o modelo deve ficar mesmo restrito ao ciclo de amigos de ELLIOTT.

FINALLY…Beyond excited to share these!!! About a year ago, we had the opportunity to work on the 35th anniversary project for what is in my opinion the most iconic shoe ever, the @nike Air Force 1. There was one stipulation: it had to be all white. When tasked with working on such a culturally significant silhouette under the restriction of keeping it in an all white palette, I wanted to make sure that we included our DNA in the silhouette and tried to craft details that could potentially create color. To me the only way to do that was by adding and reducing layers to create shadows. Since this shoe is so rare lets run through some of what makes it special: Each overlay is doubled up to add dimension. We die-cut the swoosh out of the foxing and quarter and put pebbled leather underneath to create the appearance of it going inward and to create shadows. We took this layering theme and applied it to the smallest details – everything from a layered deubré, double lace keepers, layered aglets, and a double (layered) tongue. We then reduced small details like eyelets and vents down to a bead size. The finished product is something that I am excited to own and share with friends and family members this weekend at ComplexCon. 🙏🏼@nikesportswear
