From the ground up

During Paris Fashion Week, Filling Pieces hinted that big, big things were headed our way for its FW16 collection. A little more information was revealed in a luscious campaign film, namely that the Dutch footwear brand had created a whopping 14 new models across an array of eye-catching silhouettes. And now the brand has just unveiled a comprehensive lookbook showcasing Drop 2 of the collection.

The lookbook was shot on location on the streets of London, giving an immediate sense of the practicality and durability of the collection’s pieces. Among said pieces featured in the shoot include new silhouettes like the Low Top, the Mountain Cut and the Ghost. But a special focus has been given to the Low Top Neo Laced Mixed shoe, which is placed at the forefront of the shoot. This low top features elastic lacing and an upper primarily constructed from suede, though this upper is enhanced with a neoprene tongue sewn on in a zigzag stitching pattern.

And this collection also features the introduction of a brand new Filling Pieces sole, a replacement to the cup sole that had long been a hallmark feature of the brand’s shoes. The whole line is built around redefining the brand’s sense of tactility, and the latest drop continues to reinforce this new ethos.

The Filling Pieces FW16 collection Drop 2 will drop shortly on the brand’s online store.
