What We’re Saying: Maison Margiela and Reebok will soon be releasing their latest collaboration, following the recent launch of the Classic Leather Tabi. While that particular drop saw the brands merging two iconic silhouettes, this time around, the focus is on one of Reebok’s most influential models, the Club C.
The Club C first launched as a tennis sneaker in 1985 and has since gone on to gain widespread crossover appeal. Unifying innovation with nostalgia, Maison Margiela has implemented one of its signature techniques, the the trompe l’oeil, to deliver a more modern, innovative design. With the trompe l’oeil, Margiela and Reebok have applied a scanned image of the original Club C onto the one-cut leather upper of the shoe. The visual effect ultimately presents an optical illusion mimicking every stitch, curve, and shadow of the original 3D surface.
Overall, the Maison Margiela x Reebok Club C delivers a contemporary design with timeless appeal. You can look forward to the collaborative sneaker releasing in white and black colorways on March 24 through Highsnobiety Shop.
