At.Kollektive is a creative arm unlike anything else in the fashion, footwear, and furniture scene, as it enables designers to engage in a creative exchange of ideas to create objects that advance the relationship between the consumer, the manufacturer, and the thinker. Now on Season 03, the imprint taps Nina Christen, Peter Do, Anne Holtrop, and Kiko Kostadinov to take its efforts to new heights, and its the latter that has teased their upcoming collection for At.Kollektive.
Kostadinov took to Instagram yesterday to showcase his upcoming work for the creative label, notably putting his stamp on things with avant-garde footwear. This is well within At.Kollektive’s wheelhouse, which works with ECCO and its tanneries to create innovative leather items.
For Kostadinov, this commences with three slip-on and adjustable sock-like sneakers. A brown pair sports a horizontally-striped layout of brown leather elements, woven together to create a ribbed texture. A blue pair also features alongside a bag, and both are underpinned by a sculptural black sole unit that comes up the sides of the shoe.
As for the last sneaker, Kostadinov opts for vertical layers of green and cream leather, before using a neoprene sock liner and a toggle system to add more adjustability and freedom to the shoe.
At.Kollektive’s collection will debut during Paris Fashion Week later this month. Take a look at Kiko Kostadinov’s capsule above.
