“It’s very important to understand all aspects of the shoemaking process.”
adidas Originals designer Ilka Liebmann emphasized the influence of longtime Three Stripes creative contributor Markus Thaler in a new video that details the process by which Thaler delegated and brought to fruition a new pack of collaborative releases. In ‘The Legacy of Craftsmanship’, we see young designers learning from the aged master how to best realize concepts created for adi-reppers Derrick Rose, Lionel Messi, Snoop Dogg and Caroline Wozniacki.
