Within the mythic rank of designers, Maison Margiela of the Antwerp 6 lies at the heart of fashion as we know it, receiving praise and accolades ad infinitum while going on to be a cherished favorite of rappers, stylists, and influencers alike. And with each show a spectacle in its own right, Fall/Winter 2020 housed a moment historic: the designer label’s first sneaker collaboration since its Converse 1st String capsule years prior.
Now teaming up with Reebok, the atelier pairs icon with icon, taking the general guise of the Instapump Fury and applying a filter of their own design language. OG colors such as the black with neon accents lead the charge, though in its curated assortment of offerings, they also include a full black as well as a clean triple white sans cracking paint. The latter, which can be seen on the feet of the collection’s womenswear component, is joined by the vibrant alternative with a raised heel and a boot-like construction hidden within the cages of the retro trainer. This underlayer of patent leather seats a sole ostensibly proprietary to the Vector-marked imprint, but the toe is of an unsullied Margiela DNA as it furnishes with their signature Tabi split. Menswear alternates arrive alongside with the same characteristic, however, its bottoms is replaced for a flat sole made to mimic that of the luxury house’s Retro Fit silhouette.
Grab a detailed look at the entire range and expect a release to go down later in the FW2020 season.
