We have been working on this collection with one of our favorite designers Sheila Bridges for over a year now and the release day is finally here. We took one of the most classic sneaker silhouettes, the Chuck Taylor, which happens to have a great canvas for art and paired it with Sheila Bridges "Harlem Toile". In our humble opinion...instant classic!
For more on Sheila's Harlem Toile please read below:
"As an African American designer living in Harlem, I have always been intrigued by traditional French toiles with their pastoral motifs from the late 1700s. After searching for many years for the perfect toile for my own home, I decided that it quite simply didn’t exist. I created Harlem Toile to lampoon some of the stereotypes commonly associated with African Americans, but ultimately to celebrate our complex history and rich culture, which has often been appropriated".
