E-Commerce site The Salvages is gearing to release its latest collection, appropriately titled “Deconstructivism” for its deconstructed aesthetics. With the capsule collection, the brand will introduce its first ever sneaker, the Manifesto.
The chunky low-top sneaker features an amalgamation of materials and ideals, all encompassing the “manifesto” name. A combination of elk, calfskin, suede, and full grain leather comprise the soft textures, while a rugged, asymmetrical designed Vibram outsole hits the pavement. The inner compartment of the Manifesto proudly uses pigment-free leather and orthopedic molding that not only caters to comfort through contact but a ventilated step as well.
Aesthetic-wise, the primarily-white sneaker is adorned with hits of color; neon orange and green are found alongside the soft midsole, while red accents line the knit upper and textile loop features. The toebox also displays a repaired mesh yarn look that gives the sneaker a vintage customized look. Bespoke “The Salvages” “Manifesto” laces complete the striking sneaker.
The Salvages explains the Deconstructivism movement and its meanings, drawing inspiration from the 1980s that is defined by “fragmentation, asymmetry and controlled chaos,” as stated in the press release.
The brand has pre-released its collection at Dover Street Market Ginza but will officially release “Deconstructivism” on December 3 at The Salvages official website. Further, Dover Street Market Singapore will see the Manifesto and its accompanying collection release on December 5.
For fans of chunky kicks, Balenciaga has also released its latest Track.2 sneaker, arriving in a bold “Beige/Black” colorway.
