The Retro Fit is Maison Margiela’s unisex shoe combining “lo-fi design and hi-fi development”.
Maison Margiela launches its new sneaker, The Retro Fit, crafted from house codes established by creative director John Galliano. Associated with sportswear nostalgia values, the unisex shoe combines lo-fi design and hi-fi development and reinterprets the image of the classic sneaker. Both high-top and low-top versions are available in an array of multiple colours online and in Maison Margiela boutiques.
Part of the new Maison Margiela iconic line, these ‘Retro Fit’ laminated leather sneakers in America Silver colour feature décortiqué details allover, with black inner soles and trim. The pair is purposefully cut-out and scuffed for an ‘undone’ finish. Its sponge inserts have been hand-dyed, propelling these iconic sneakers into a retrofuturistic mood—seen across the Autumn/Winter 2018-19 Collection.
“The result is an on-trend pair of kicks that are likely to appeal to sneakerheads thanks to their chunky silhouette and deconstructed detailing,” commented highsnobiety.com. “Retailing for $895, the Maison Margiela Retro Fit can be purchased through Margiela’s online store as part of its FW18-19 collection.”
