DESCRIPTION
FILA and Staple Pigeon have teamed up for the Spring 17 season, this time on an international
level. The companies are set to unveil a new capsule collection on March 15, 2017, available at
premium international FILA flagship stores and select top tier global retailers. Similar to last
year’s collaborative release, the capsule will include a range of apparel and footwear styles.
Pieces were designed to combine classic FILA silhouettes with Staple’s signature graphic eye, for
a collection that seamlessly merges elements associated with both brands.
The Spring 17 offerings fuse NYC-based Staple’s influence in street and sneaker culture, with
FILA’s heritage in fashion and sport. On the apparel side, the collection consists of graphic tees,
long sleeve shirts, pique polo shirts, velour sweat suits, shorts, and windbreakers. The hooded
tees and scalloped hems combine a penchant for sportswear and street style. Additional design
details include color blocking, stripes and camo prints, in keeping with the line’s black, white,
gray and pigeon pink color palette. Pieces also feature FILA's co-branded patches, which identify
both brands and have been used for decades specifically for pinnacle collaborations and
collections.
The footwear component of the capsule collection features the F-13 and Original Fitness
silhouettes in multiple colorways. Both styles were designed with a full grain leather and suede
combo upper. The shoes also feature the two-tone FILA flag, bearing the same combination of
materials. In addition, the footwear designs share customized product details such as a dual
branded, embroidered tongue patch, sock liner, printed footbed, and branded lace tips.
“FILA represented to me the perfect marriage of luxury with attitude. As I grew up, and Hip-Hop
was infused into my DNA; it was fitting to see my lyrical heroes show love to FILA as well. Now,
decades later, it is an honor that I’ve come full circle and am now able to collaborate with that
same brand and bring the aesthetic I’ve created at Staple Pigeon to the table. FILA x Staple has
been a long time coming. Love All.” Jeff Staple, Founder of Staple Pigeon
