Using examples from a range of shops, from fashion emporia to small outlets, the book offers practical advice on the subject, supported by hints and tips from established visual merchandisers.

A tribute to UK sneaker customizer Rob L, Puma teamed up with this devoted Clyde historian, collector and artist to develop the sought after “Archipelago Clydes”. In the late 80’s Rob L became obsessed with Puma Clydes and Suedes. He soon started collecting as well as customizing them in a unique way with Pantone ® marker pens. It worked out to be patchy on big areas, so he perfected his technique by breaking it down to smaller patches of color: the “archipelago” pattern was born. Available in blue on white or cream on white. Only 500 pairs per color, available June 21st.
A week later, on June 28th, the second colorama of the Sneaker Freaker x Puma “Jirozame” project will be released. This edition’s Blaze of Glory will be vivid black highlighted of several cleverly chosen colors. Only 504 pairs throughout the world.

Available at Colette - paris

Nike with Liberty Print

Uncategorized No Comments »

Nike has applied the best of British style to the design of one of its icons, the Nike Dunk, to create a limited edition, transcultural sneaker, which will be released this April at select retail accounts.
Set in a famous Tudor building in the heart of the West End, Nike designers were inspired by the signature fabrics at the Liberty department store during a visit in the summer of 2006.

The Nike Design team selected two classic Liberty prints, Wilshire and Pepper, to create two limited editions of the Nike Dunk. Liberty fabrics are characterized by tender palettes, all over floral prints, and detailed movement, which is the perfect juxtaposition with the clean design lines of the Nike Dunk.
The limited edition sneakers feature a gum rubber midsole and a heavyweight Liberty fabric for the upper which was chosen for its durability. British designers working within Nike’s global design team were consulted during the creation of the shoes to ensure the final look was quintessentially British.

Limited edition of 185 pairs each in Europe, available in Colette paris, and maybe Liberty London.
