Syahid’s collection is a minimalist take on the nature and qualities of urbanity. The design takes queues from the diverseness and randomness of the vast assemblage of elements in the urban context. Mismatched yet complementary, the DUOs are designed such that the ‘perfect match’ in a pair of shoes is non-existent. Two colours are swapped around in both shoes in every pair (and between low and high-top pairs), creating odd yet complementary sets which captures the eye.
DUO comes as a set of naturally-mismatched sneakers that screams imperfection yet shows off a unique, bold and minimalist aesthetic with its colour-on-white canvas and clean muted lines (stitches and slit) to complement the look.
About the TENCEL™ Art of Shoes: Creative minds across Singapore took a chance on their vision and joined the TENCEL™ Art of Shoes Design Competition, organised by TaF.tc. After a 4-day Digital Footwear Design workshop, they designed their very own sneaker mini-collections according to the theme “Modern Artistry”, which were brought to life and now available for pre-orders.
All sneakers were designed using TENCEL™ fabrics. TENCEL™ Lyocell Fibers are material made from sustainably-grown and procured tree fibres, manufactured by Lenzing. Lenzing has supplied TENCEL™ Lyocell Fibers as part of the sneaker design process of the TENCEL™ Art of Shoes. Find out more on their Instagram!
