Amsterdam-based label Filling Pieces has taken to Paris’s Galerie Perrotin art gallery once again, this time to showcase its FW17 “Move Without Barriers” sneaker collection.
The collection is inspired by the “ingenuity of nomadic Mongolian tribes,” who move from place to place biannually in search of a better home, looking for land with untapped resources to fuel their creativity. Filling Pieces says the new styles pay homage to not only the resourcefulness and ingenuity of these traveling people, but also to their adaptability.
The offering is around half the size of its SS17 collection (350 styles in total), with a greater emphasis placed on innovating its current silhouettes, as well as developing new in-house-designed sole units. Colorways are inspired by the vibrant and modern color palettes of the Tsaatan tribe textiles, and the laser-cut patterns, printed motifs and decorative details are contemporary takes on their visual lexicon.
For the first time, the brand has divided its styles into several different segments to better define its design direction: Basic, Youth, Luxury, Contemporary, Minimal and Women’s. Take a sneak peek at the new collection from the show at Galerie Perrotin above.
