Produced and developed in association with Sergio Rossi and Puma, the unisex HYBRID COLLECTION explores the morphing of genres, a re-occuring theme in Chalayan's work. Borrowing elements from existing footwear styles, the unisex HYBRID COLLECTION offers a fresh interpretation of the trainer.
The colour palette includes taupe, black, coffee, neutral and white. Fabrics range from suede and calf leather to nylon puffa and the collection comprises of five key styles.
They look a bit like the spawn of a RickOwensCommonProjectsRafbyRaf drunk threeway but I'm cool with that. The boot is especially striking, I can see it becoming a total it-shoe this winter. Who wants to initiate the countdown till Kanye
I couldn't find much more info on him online but I am curious to see how he evolves (assuming he's a newcomer). The majority of the elements (black leather, buckles, laces and platforms) in this collection feel so done already but I guess if it ain't broke, don't fix it, since they've proved to bestow a magical "sold-out" quality to many a shoe in these recent times!
I will be adding him to my "ones to watch" though...

***EDITING TO ADD***
weird that right after I did this post I found these LaRares on google images that were relevant to my interests. that must be that annoying spying&advertising that google does all the time.
I guess this insanity right here is a prime example of how I like my laces, buckles and platforms done
but then again La Rare rarely fails to impress.
