Following his appointment as creative director at Bottega Veneta in 2021, Matthieu Blazy has kept simplicity at the fore. His debut saw minimalistic design cues submerged in hidden textural motifs, exclaiming that the timeless range holds a sense of “quiet power.” Blazy’s most recent collection stormed Milan Fashion Week with dynamic casualwear fit for any occasion. Now, Bottega’s leading man dives into footwear, presenting his first sneaker for the luxury house.
First teased in his Fall/Winter 2022 showcase, the shoe takes inspiration from ’90s skate culture in which low-top padded sneakers were at a high. The “Pillow Sneaker” features a calfskin leather construction alongside breathable mesh liners and gum rubber outsoles. Its practical design makes it a modern-day wardrobe essential, delivering a relaxed approach with a cushioned facade that will put your feet to bed.
Now available for purchase in “Parakeet,” “Black,” or “Optic White/Parakeet” tones, the sneaker also boasts oversized midsoles, debossed leather tongues and textured bottoms for increased grip.
Shop Bottega Veneta’s “Pillow Sneaker” via the brand’s website and physical retail stores for $920 USD.
