For AW17, vegan label Rombaut comes back swinging. Literally. To showcase its latest collection, the Ghent-based label turns to the world of pugilism for one of the most high-octane lookbooks we've seen all year.
Over the course of two hours, a selection of heavyweight fighters donned the apparel and footwear while sparring against each other. The most eye-catching brawl came when Tom Duquesnoy, a World Champion in his weight class since 2013, took on model Staiv Gentis. All money raised from the event went directly to the Karam Foundation to help Aleppo.
As we've come to expect from Rombaut, the collection comprises a whole gamut of experimental silhouettes and conceptual designs. Low top sneakers are perforated with crazy holes and rainbow-colored accents, while neoprene sneaker-boots fall in line with the recent trend for sock-like fits. Apparel, meanwhile, is represented by caps and T-shirts.
Look out for the latest AW17 collection dropping on the Rombaut website in the near future.
Staying with dope sneakers, here's how you can win a pair of "Japan Boost Grey" NMD_R1s.
