As usual (though “usual” is not quite the word to put on Margiela’s work), Martin Margiela takes us out of the box and injects elements of surprise into his creations–this time around, in a dramatic material–velvet.
With a collection inspired by The Usual Suspects starring Stephen Baldwin and Kevin Spacey, and the 70s, the footwear from the collection are also simple retro classics that are re-imagined and re-interpreted. The sneakers for this upcoming season feature a decadent swipe of all-over-velvet in loud colors of blue and pink. The entire upper including tongue, laces and soles are covered in plush velvet remixed with white lining. With a blue lo-top for men and a pink hi-top for women, there is a pair for everyone. These are instant hits that will draw attention to your feet and with season-appropriate touch. The smooth velvety kicks are now available at colette.
