Nike x fragment design Sock Dart ‘Dark Loden’ – Launching 18th December

December 17th, 2014

Hot on the heels of their recent collaboration on Roshe LD-100 SP and the Tennis Classic SP, Nike and fragment design have teamed up once again to present the futuristic Sock Dart in four distinct colourways.

Originally designed in 2004 by Nike HTM, the collaborative triumvirate featuring Mike Parker, Tinker Hatfield and fragment design’s Hiroshi Fujiwara, the Sock Dart was perhaps one of the more challenging and forward thinking silhouettes of its time. The first to be constructed from computerised knitting technology, Fujiwara has gone on record to say, “The first time I saw the Sock Dart — it wasn’t even a shoe. Tinker showed me a knit, like a sock, and explained they were going to put an outsole on it.”.

The first collaborative release ‘Dark Loden’, which coincides with the upcoming Nike x fragment design Air Jordan 1, features many of the original decals including the now de-rigour knitted upper, perforated silicon strap fastening and fresh contrast midsole unit.

Name: Nike x fragment design Sock Dart

Rick Owens Precollection Spring 2015 – Now online

December 17th, 2014

Making his debut at END. for the new season, Rick Owens channels his personal rebellious streak through his often menacing collections which meld finely crafted leather jackets with contemporary silhouettes and off-hand footwear.

Having founded his eponymous label in 1994, Rick Owens has a signature aesthetic that has often been replicated but never matched. Tying in elements from grunge to gothic, Owens builds collections through and array of considered materials, asymmetrical silhouettes and a truly minimalist colour palette.

This defined look is evident not only in his mainline collection but also in his collaborative endeavours, namely with adidas where his eye for the shape and detail took the hallowed three-striped into unchartered territory.

For the LA-based designer’s Spring 2015 ‘Precollection’, Owens has produced an array of avant-garde statement pieces that, although contemporary and challenging, works effortlessly with simple wardrobe staples. The range features a selection of faultlessly executed leather jackets and progressive sweatshirts and tees as well as leather goods ranging from his revered footwear to iPhone covers and wallets.
