Following the first release announced in March 2022, the second release in collaboration with Off-White ™ focuses on Church’s other icon model, the Consultant. With the details of Off-White ™’s classic “Meteor” at the center of the design, we propose a modern silhouette suitable for summer outfits with circular holes throughout the body of the shoe. This collection, which sublimates the theme of “Meteor Shower” envisioned by Virgil Abloh, is the signature of Off-White ™ and is an iconic circular cut reminiscent of holes in Swiss cheese and craters of meteor showers. The out is expressed by more luxurious materials and voluminous shapes, and has evolved further.
The history of “consulting” currently made using Last 173 dates back to 1945. The model name comes from the British ambassadors and politicians who used these shoes, and soon after their release, they became a symbol of the British upper class at that time. The second collaboration, “Consult Meteor,” retains this stunning Oxford-style character with carefully brushed and polished black calfskin. The upper has a number of large holes and is finished with Off-White ™’s trademark hang tags and shoelaces.
The second capsule collection in collaboration with Off-White ™ and Church will be available at some Church domestic stores (Omotesando (men’s, ladies’), Isetan Shinjuku (ladies’ only)) and the official online store from June 29th. Scheduled to start. Off-White ™ domestic stores (Aoyama, GINZA SIX) will be released in July.
