Raf Simons SS09 Hi-Top Sneakers

"Creative Director of Jil Sander, 'Raf Simons’s Hi-Top sneakers for his own Raf Simons Spring/Summer 09 collection replicates the contrast between sketchory patterns and clean-cut monotones from the same season’s apparel.' There are three models of this season’s hi-top cloth sneakers now available for grabs at Colette." Read more and see more photos of both colorways, after the jump.
"Two of them have elaborate embroidery– one with multi-colored alphabet threading on black cloth, and the other with little black gradiented stitches on white cloth. The other one is a simple white cloth sneaker with signature black “R” to the sides. All three models are aesthetically evocative of Christopher Wool’s graffiti-inspired paintings."
