Very rarely do we see the realms of furniture and footwear collide, but thanks to Eames and Reebok, we are experiencing it with their second capsule collection. After working on a batch of Club C, the two entities came together and produced a new collaboration centered around Classic Leather and paying homage to various Eames pieces.
First on the list is the “Rosewood” variant which overtly calls the Lounge Chair and Ottoman pieces. The entire upper half and insoles are covered in woodgrain patterns to effectively mimic the aesthetic of a plywood shell. Next in the collection is a makeup set dedicated to Eames’ “The Coloring Toy” kit. Designed with white backdrops and soles, the kicks are adorned with geometric outlines all over to mimic the construction kit, and these are meant to be customized and colored by wearers. The three remaining colors of the assembly are grouped together to form the “Elephant” pack. This set pays homage to the Eames Elephant play figure for children and results in a trio of monochrome iterations that come in ‘Ice Grey’, ‘Poppy Red’ and Dark Lime and feature the object’s silhouette in shape of shroud at the top of the laces.
The entire collection will be broadcast via Eames, Reebok and select retailers throughout June, beginning with the release of “The Coloring Toy” offer on June 2. Additionally, Eames and Reebok will showcase the capsule through a special brand experience on Friday, May 20 at Lume Studios in New York. .
