Reebok meets luxury in latest collaboration with Maison Margiela
Reebok has collaborated with luxury house Maison Margiela on a sneaker capsule collection. Reflecting the deconstructed feel unique to Margiela pieces, the range are expected to become a favourite of sneakerheads and high fashion darlings alike.
The original Reebok cross-check is peeled off to reveal punch-holes, which once held its stitching, using the Margiela technique of decortiqué, meaning to cut an item to reveal its structure.
Both silhouettes will be available to shop from Reebok from 2am on Friday, March 25.
The Hold Label launches with short film
Sydney handbag label The Hold has officially launched with short film Envelop, written and directed by Holly Graham of Siy Studio. Handbags are designed by founder Rae Pooley and handmade by a selection of artisans carefully sourced in Northern India.
The Hold’s bags are designed to be pieces of wearable art for home and to carry with you while out for the day. Through a visual story that finds poetry in a seemingly regularly morning, the narrative of the film tells the experience of two lovers and the "almost fictional love they are enveloped in”.
You can shop the collection today.
