Common Projects Spring Summer 2013

20130130-091745.jpg

When founders Prathan Poopat and Flavio Girolami started Common Projects, their mission was to create minimalist, comfortable sneakers, made in Italy using only the finest materials. In addition to a utilitarian design, the shoes were virtually anonymous, with exterior branding limited to the article number and shoe size, factory-stamped in gold foil near the heel. The brand’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection is largely an extension of that original mission statement, with new slip-on sneakers, tennis shoes and crepe-soled loafers joining reliable standbys like the Achilles and Tournament, finished in new colours and materials for spring.

Common Projects Achilles Wool Sneaker

Common Project‘s flagship silhouette, the Achilles, gets a burgundy-speckled, textured wool make-over leaving the brand’s usual premium calfskin leather build behind. Sitting atop a black rubber vulcanized sole, the low-top sneaker features silver specks across the entire burgundy upper, finished with matching laces and leather lining that tops out around the heel. The brand’s signature gold stamp noting the shoe’s size and style code is placed on the rear still.

 

 

Common Projects Runner Sneaker

As much as we love the iconic styling of the vintage running shoe, the minimalist inside us all yearns for something that exercises a bit of restraint on the branding side. Common Projects fills that void with their own shoe that’s luxuriously restyled with nubuck and nappa leather. Winner!

Browns Cabinet de Curiosités x Common Projects

In amongst Browns Cabinet de Curiosités limited edition offerings is this pair of very exclusive and ultra premium Common Projects Black crocodile skin ‘Achilles’ low-top sneakers. Priced at £2,400 they aren’t for everyone. Made in Italy of Crocodile skin, this is luxury sportswear to its extreme.

Common Projects Desert Boot 1209 43 1039

Inspired by utilitarian design and luxury products, Common Projects sets out to create minimalist design basics and accessories.  The stand out style for me from the Spring Summer 2011 collection is the Red colourway of the Desert Boots A sick design, featuring nubuck uppers and a contrast grey mid-sole unit. Of course they continue to use their trademark product code on the outside of the shoe (1209 43 1039 in this case). If the red is for you they are available in Blue or Khaki too.
