Amsterdam’s Filling Pieces was established in 2009 to fulfill founder Guillaume Philibert’s vision of a common ground between haute couture and streetwear. He’s doing this at just the right time as so many elements of mainstream western culture converge with dignified elegance as a key theme, and now the brand will team up with an American designer who’s managed to carve out his own premium street niche quite nicely. The Ronnie Fieg x Filling Pieces ‘July 4th Capsule’ has the Kith frontman working in familiar territory with solid-colored designs crafted in premium soft suede. The Filling Pieces Low Top adds a grey contrast to red and blue pairs’ heels for a bit more balance, and both of them will be available at the Manhattan and Brooklyn Kith storefronts on Independence Day. Click through to see more angles, and look for these to hit Kith tomorrow, July 3rd, just in time for the festivities.
