To sneakerheads, kicks are more than just a part of one’s wardrobe. While they’re often seen as an obsession, sneakers — with their numerous designs and colorways — also encourages creativity. Case in point: Vancouver creatives Jeremy Jude Lee and Lauren Coutts‘ latest collaboration is a playful ode to some of the hottest shoes this season.
Dubbed “Rubber Soul,” the mixed-media editorial finds the photographer and illustrator giving popular silhouettes such as the PUMA Basket Platform and the Nike Air Max 97 a two-dimensional makeover. Styled by Carlee Wallace, the imagery sees a mix of high-brow and low-brow aesthetics, featuring pieces from Stella McCartney, Maison Margiela, Vetements, Opening Ceremony, vintage Champion and more. Browse the gallery above to check out the visual narrative in full.
