During New York Fashion Week‘s Fall/Winter 2018 season, John Elliott unveiled his first-ever womenswear collection. The range focused on experimental separates fused with everyday pieces. Now, the designer has reimagined Nike‘s beloved Air Force 1. His design completely revamps the silhouette with layers which create an illusion of color through shadows.
Additionally, each overlay is doubled and raised, with the Swoosh die-cut exposing pebbled leather. This specific layering technique was applied to each foundational element. Which included an embossed deubré, double lace keepers, cascading lace tips and overlapping tongues. The eyelets and vents appear a bit smaller on this rendition of the shoe.
John Elliott x Nike’s Air Force 1 will be available on October 13 on johnelliott.co. Sign up at the official web store to gain early access to the sneakers. Take a look at the design in the gallery above.
