One Block Down and FILA have teamed up for a capsule collection of footwear and apparel dubbed “Ciao Biella.” Centered around a digitized vaporwave leopard print, each piece was created to celebrate the rich legacy of Italian sportswear. The name is a pun on the recognizable Italian greeting, “Ciao Bella,” cleverly nodding to Biella, Piedmont, where FILA was founded back in 1911.

The collection’s footwear consists of the FILA DSTR 97 done up in two colorways: black and white. Each pair’s upper is split between a crisp leather lower half and a leopard-printed canvas top half. These two parts are separated by a stripe that proffers repeating FILA text hits. Co-branded “Ciao Biella” details grace both the tongue and the mudguard, with flecked laces and a sporty midsole/outsole completing the look.

Apparel mixes shades of jet black with the same leopard print and “Ciao Biella” motifs present on the shoes. There’s a crewneck sweatshirt, longsleeve tee, pants and a reversible bucket hat, but the most standout piece is the all-over printed anorak, covered completely in the collection’s hybrid leopard hues.

The One Block Down x FILA “Ciao Biella” collection will release on December 18, exclusively at One Block Down’s online store and locations in Milan and Rome.
