Editor’s Notes: Footwear brand both Paris specializes in exploring the different ways rubber can be used on sneakers. Having appeared at Paris Fashion Week in June, the label has now unveiled its new women’s collection, comprising a number of interesting silhouettes.

Founded in 2014, both made a name for itself with the Gao Runner, which has been rocked by Gigi and Bella Hadid. The label's new line is inspired by Chinese heritage, traditions, and culture.

References range from the colorful dragon costumes worn on Chinese New Year to the textural colors of Asian ceramics. The new collection's bold color palette reaches its zenith with two platform sneakers in mirrored gold and baby pink.
