After starring as the face for Filling Pieces‘ debut ready-to-wear campaign, Majid Jordan once again team up with the Amsterdam based fashion label. Now,this time around the Canadian artists co-designed an exclusive shoe which is set to be launched at ComplexCON 2018 which is this weekend. With a strong presence in the music scene and because of a shared vision on bridging gaps, bringing together different worlds and mixing genres, it felt natural for Filling Pieces to enter into the design process with the Toronto based musicians.
Filling Pieces founder Guillaume Philibert (@gsrnn) on collaborating with Majid Jordan:
“We first met Majid & Jordan during our Barneys New York ready-to-wear campaign shoot in LA. But we really got to know them when we went to the Rotterdam and Amsterdam shows of their European tour. Afterwards, they swung by the office and we spoke about music, art, design and other mutual interests. It felt we had an affinity as we shared a lot of ideas and viewpoints so a collaboration felt really natural. When we took them on a tour of the office and reached the design studio, they were super excited and we bounced of their energy and literally created that pair of shoes together in one day.”
“We are honored to collaborate with Filling Pieces on our new signature shoe. It’s amazing what music can lead to. Filling Pieces is a company that we look up to and after meeting their team in Amsterdam we could not wait to work together. The shoe came out even better than we could imagine. FPGP1 forever.”
The limited edition sneaker was produced in an extremely limited run and will be exclusively available at ComplexCON 2018 November 3/4) , where Filling Pieces will be joined by Majid Jordan themselves for the release of the shoe.
