Editor’s Notes: Following its low-top 101 shoe, Jerry Lorenzo has now unveiled the 101 High, a new silhouette for his Fear of God line.
According to Jerry Lorenzo, his affinity for vintage tees led to the creation of this silhouette which began about eight months ago, and revealed that its construction is handled meticulously at the highest level in Italy, with the vintage tees utilized for its uppers, hand-picked across the globe.
Additional details of his concept are revealed in the Instagram post below, with a caption that reads, "For a while I've been rocking the same few 2 or 3 tees inside/out to be a bit more un-opinionated with my fashion and I guess in way as I’ve done my entire life, try to further separate myself thru clothing... but my love for vintage tees hasn’t changed."
"Fast forward a few years and I found myself sitting on a few hundred of rare tees from the 80’s and 90’s that I don’t wear anymore... instead of throwing them up on @grailed ...we came up with a new way to 'repurpose' them... again. introducing the 101 high... all sneakers, literally 1OF1... dropping next month"
A few variations of the 101 High are previewed, each bearing a unique design, and according to Jerry Lorenzo, the entire line will be dropping some time next month, hinting that it will be revealed at London's Selfridges.
