As karmic science dictates, all good things must come to an end. Fortunately in the case of Barneys New York‘s fan favorite BNY Sole Series—a season-long capsule of exclusively footwear styles from adidas, Converse, Diadora, and more made in collaboration with the high-end retailer—the last number deserves an applause. Staying true to both brands’ core concepts, Barneys turned to fashion staple Common Projects for a three-style release of perforated and layered leather over canvas low-tops with rubber soles and CP’s metallic gold signature. “Common Projects is a longtime footwear partner of ours and there is a lot of buzz around their brand right now,” says senior buyer for men’s footwear at Barneys Chris Pepe. “We thought it was fitting to offer up a collaboration during the holidays, because [they] only offer fall and spring collections.” Starring the iconic achilles silhouette, the collaboration encouraged a larger gauge of perforation than what is typically used, allowing for a greater visual effect. An update to a popular style, the sneakers round out the BNY Sole Series in a bitter sweet–but also can’t wait to grab—moment.
