Filling Pieces Spring/Summer 2014
European footwear firm Filling Pieces has launched its SS14 collection with the aim of bridging the gap between high fashion and streetwear.
The Amsterdam import, which was established in 2009, has pulled on quality materials and innovative design under the direction of designer Guillaume Philibert.
The plainly named pieces, which are hand made in Portugal, are titled after the production processes and design modifications they undergo. Examples range from ‘transformed’ and ‘layered’ to ‘gradient perforation beige’ and ‘floral embossed’.
The new range features trainers in neutral tones such as grey, beige and brown with occasional pops of red and more sophisticated all-black pieces.
The attention to detail that gained the brand a cult following has made a return across the low top, hi-top, and mountain cut silhouettes.
Alongside its fashion endeavours, the label also operates the FP For Charity project, giving back to communities in which it works.
Most recently, on a trip to Suriname in South America to shoot their lookbook, the brand distributed fifty pairs of shoes to orphans from children’s home Emmaus.
The collection is available to buy online now from the brand’s e-commerce store, as well as from Hypebeast, Cruise, Poste and Oki-Ni. Prices range from approximately €120 (£100) – €250 (£210).
