Are designer colloborations a marketing gimmick fostered by “common-place” brands running out of ideas and credibility?
The number of designer colloborations has increased exponentially over the past year or so, particularly in the footwear industry, and the main emphasise appears to be for the “common-place” brands to hook up with a respected designer or fashion house. Adidas/McCartney, Puma/McQueen, Nike/Nigo, Puma/Evisu etc.
What next! Converse and Prada!Â Â Footlocker and Tods! or perhaps Gola and Gucci!
Also check out the Umbro by Kim Jones collaboration!
and don’t forget Y3 and Adidas. Go Yohji Yamamoto!!!
Outsoles are made of enduring compounds and are a in Queer Street needle of left over shoe existence.
