Filling Pieces are celebrating their sixth year at the head of the sneaker game. To mark the anniversary, Friday, October 9, saw them release the limited edition “Paramaribo Laser” pack at an invite-only party at Amsterdam’s newly opened W Hotel. The pack references Surinam, the South American homeland of Filling Pieces founder, Guillaume Philibert, with the pack’s name taken from the country’s capital, Paramaribo. Available in three tonal colorways of red, white or black, with laser-etched designs across their trademark Low Top silhouette, the label are offering Highsnobiety readers the chance to win the entire pack.
The shots above were taken by famed photographer Dennis Branko, known for his signature take on Amsterdam nightlife. In attendance were in-house Filling Pieces designers Rizky and Malachi Manukure, as well as model Naleye Junior, Olaf Hussein, creative director at his eponymous label Olaf Hussein, Patta’s Gee and Filling Pieces founder Philibert, sporting a white pair from the Paramaribo pack.
The competition closes midnight, October 14.
