Filling Pieces x Schott N.Y.C.
Amsterdam fashion brand Filling Pieces officially launches their latest collaboration with New York heritage brand Schott. Together, the brands have given the classic bombardier jacket a new lease of life, producing a limited run of 77 jackets. From aviation to street culture, the jacket has shown impressive versatility since the mid-twentieth century. Made with quality materials, expert craftsmanship, innovative functional details and a luxurious look. This jacket is a true manifestation of both Schott's legacy and Filling Pieces' vision "bridging the gap" The olive green shearling lined jacket features FP's signature Surinamese handshake emblem, salmon colored leather details, subtle branding on the pocket. Manufactured by Schott's master tailors using leather tanned exclusively for the brand to specifications developed over the past 100 years.
About the collaboration, founder and creative director Guillaume Philibert says: “As a young fashion house, this project represents an important milestone. Schott's rich history and heritage has inspired us to develop a truly timeless garment together, which represents the values and history of both brands.”
As an extension of the collaboration, Schott will be a guest in the pop-up space of Filling Pieces' Flagship store in Amsterdam, which will be transformed into an immersive shopping experience inspired by American aviation and JFK Airport. The pop-up experience, which opens November 11, will feature the collaboration pieces, as well as the new winter collection of Schott's signature items.
